Vishwananda Hasn't Charmed Everyone

File under: Gurubusting

While we may have been mildly charmed when Swami Vishwananda came to town, this guy is apparently miffed by the Swami's claim that he is the reincarnation of Paramhamsa Yogananda:
It's an interesting fact how Vishwananda is falling in[to] the trap of proclaiming himself [to be] Yogananda reincarnated while [Yogananda's gurus] give proof [that] Yogananda commercializ[ed] the Kriya discipline, [having] made three unauthorized big changes and thus became the champion and the leader of the modified Kriya.
We like it, criticizing a guru based on what he allegedly did in a past life. This could open up a whole new avenue for us...

The blade said:

"You bring him to the witness box and you ask him, 'Vishwanananda, Was it, or was it not, YOU who did all those things we attribute to Paramhansa Yogananda'? If he answers 'yes', you hold him liable, on his own admission."

Thats funny, Vishwananda imagined to be famous by proclaiming himself Yogananda...But didn't thought to be laible for Yogananda's mistakes about Kriya and other things.

when you see all these self proclaimed Gurus coming to town to make publicity and to market their products...Where are we going???

Vishwananda's mission isn't convincing people of being Yogananda in the past. You won't find it in his website and he would never tell something like that to you. He knows that such informations would confuse and annoy to many truth-searchers. Such informations - true or not - can come only from his devotees. But of course - every Master has a past.

From Darkness to Light Part 1

Who is really vishawanada?
A guru, a con-man, an artist or simply a fraud.
Many people is impressed by this Young yogi's sweet words and magic tricks.But very few inquired about his real past and credibility.
Vishwanada's past is quite horrible and many of his ex devotees have been manipulated.
Vishwananda auto proclaimed himself Yogananda reincarnated to many of his disciples.
Vishwananda auto proclaimed himself to be a direct disciple of Babaji.
Vishwananda gives darshan and materialize Vibhutis,Lingams and Rings or Jeweleries in the same way as Sai Baba.
Why people do not ask the right question, Sai Baba is proven by medias, Genuine Gurus and ex devotees to be a big fraud.Vishwananda is acting in the same way as Sai baba and people are still being fooled.
Vishwananda was a very popular devotee of Satya Sai Baba, was converted in Christianity and had many serious problems with catholic authorities.
Vishwananda is doing the same advertising company like sai baba, giving Darshan, Materializing Objects and using the same logo, Love all,serve all...

Important Announcement
A statement will be made here within the next few days regarding recent allegations against Sri Swami Vishwananda and Bhakti Marga.

At 9/13/2008 4:00 AM, Blogger Aspiration said...

Just as a followup: has changed since my last post. The note refering to 'recent allegations' has gone. But you can still see the issue is on,If you go to calendars you will see this note: 'The buildup of Springen (the new center in Germany) is now entering a decisive phase and needs all our attention. In addition the latest developments (see blog) have changed our priorities for the next months. Only few events will take place for some time.'

What these 'latest developments' are is not written here, but you can be sure, that it has to do with the 'recent allegations'

Besides that: 'Please note:October dates are not confirmed yet.' That is to say, they have been cancelled for the moment.

Vishwananda also has dissolved his 'order' (monks and nuns). It seems the allegations are about him having homosexual realtions to his monks (not being homosexual, and having made a celibate vow.) He has released everybody of his vows.

Please keep my identity confidential.

In fact is just a frameset that loads, the international page. If you click on 'Centers' ,, and then scroll down to 'London, UK' , click the link, instead of the London page you get back to the initial page of, in fact you get into a loop. The reason is that the London section have taken their page down.

Okay, Jody, here is a bit more:

Friday, 12 September 2008
Message from Guruji

Dear brothers and sisters, dear friends

I decided to dissolve the Bhakti Marga order.

I hereby release all Brahmacharis/inis and Jal-Brahmacharis/inis from their vows. People often get caught up in positions and titles. If someone really wants to live for God, one doesn’t need a title.

My love is always with you.

I feel sorry from the bottom of my heart if someone feels hurt. This was never my intention.

People saw many things in me in the past, and expected me to be many things. And they had great expectations of who I am and how I have to be. I just want to say: I am Swami Vishwananda, with my whole being.

For each one of you who wants to stay connected with me and accepts me how I am, I continue to be there. I know, that there are many of you, who want to continue to lead a spiritual life. This will also be possible in the future, however, there will no longer exist an organisation like until now.

Who would like to write to me, can send an email to

Springen continues to be and you are very welcome to visit.

Love & blessings,

Swami Vishwananda

It is sad to say that the crazy woman who supposedly didn't have her needs met was accurate and thank God she had the guts to find out what was really going on. The truth is out...Vishwananda has not kept his own principles, the principles he demanded of his Bramacharis. He violated these principles with his own. His response to all this...he has dissolved Bhakti Marga and states that he sincerely apologizes and that he never meant to hurt anyone. It was never his intentions but intentions are not the same as actions. His actions hurt others and may have done some major psychological damage to those spiritually just beginning on the path. All said and done, the only question for anyone to ponder is: "Are those at the top of the BM organization in integrity with their word/preaching?" If the answer is no, then the decision to walk away and remain in integrity is the only spiritually intelligent decision to make.

The cause of this dissolution? According to anonymous tipsters, it went down something like this:
Emails were being sent out about Swamiji having illicit sex with his Brahmachari’s (the boys), which prompted a conference call last night lead by the national coordinator, Shrihara, and the US Brahmacharis.

Well, the “rumors” are true. Swamiji has been having sex with his Brahmacharis for years. Questions that were asked were was it consensual? Yes, in some cases. Anyone under age? No, as far as anyone knows. Were any Brahmacharis tramatized? Yes. Hari, who became a Swami recently (Swami “VK”) renounced his vows and ties to Vishwananda and is now living back with his family in London. No one knows what happened with him. Was he having sex with Vishwanada? And if not, he surely must have known what was going on.

It would be wise to give due consideration to one's limited understanding before taking the name of Paramahansa Yogananda, one of the greatest saints to have walked the earth, in the same breath as this Vishwananda. Having studied at the feet of Himalayan Masters, not one would speak against such a lofty soul, whose work and demonstration speaks for itself.

With regards to the Kriya Yoga given at the time, certain simplifications were made due to the evolution of the American People at the time. Considering the social climate at the time one might consider his accomplishments by the name of Mahavatar Babaji to be all more venerated.

People who were deeply involved with Vishwananda are speaking up and telling the truth here:

I may be interested to pursue this further if you have some evidence that can be used. You can stay anonymous, but would you give me a way to get in touch with you? My email is: Thanks.

All I can say, stay away from Vishwananda and his German ashram!

Vishwananda manipulates you, especially if you are good looking and a young male. If you visit his ashram, you might not leave so soon, because he will suck you in by his magic/ yogic powers. There will be no choice and you will be his monk under his direct energetic or spiritual control. Look up other cases, young adults arrive there not knowing anything about spirituality. He makes them their boyfriends in secret and a few months later they become rishis or even swamis because he likes them. Currently (in 2018) there is this Canadian guy who started wearing some red robe. Unfortunately he is insecure and naive, but a good guy overall. He certainly has sex with him,just as he tried with me. Many others would just not leave anymore and stay even though they might not be made for a life as a monk. At some point you will become so attached to him that you would feel how he steals your energy when he needs it. He will control and abuse you emotionally and mentally, if he needs to. I went through hell having stayed there for a while. This guru is sick, always desiring to have sex. He even does something like astral sex with you (I am not sure if that is the right expression though). After a night with this guru I approached one of the swamis there why he has sex with his monks. His brainwash talk was something like: Everything a guru does is for the better. What else would you expect of a cult as such? I know, all of this sounds crazy. But you also have to believe at some point if reports are similar.

Stay out there people, just a good advice for you all! Peace

Vishwananda is a charlatan who steals energy from innocent monks. Find out how and why he does it. He has sex with his monks and they think it's good for them. They are manipulated internally and he did so by establishing secretly a connection/ bond/ faith towards him. People who have higher abilities can explain what he does. They independently say he would steal energy from his monks and keeps an invisible bond with them every second of the day. This is not the doing of a pure soul but rather of dark forces using him as a channel. Be warned about this man!

Where to start with the corruption in Bhakti Marga?
How about we start with this...

A devotee from the Netherlands, named Tamara, was invited by Vishwananda to travel with him to India a few years ago.
She overheard Vishwananda on the telephone speaking with Aniruddha.
AniRuddha is a living guru in India.
VishWananda explained to Aniruddha that he wanted to meet with him.

However, Aniruddha refused to allow Vishwananda to come visit.

Upon hearing this Tamara decided to break off from Vishwananda's India tour.
She decided to travel on her own to see Annirudha and ask him herself,
why he refused to give darshan to Vishwananda.

Annirudha replied,

"because yogis like Vishwananda, who mis-use their yogic powers,
will burn in hell for mis-using their yogic powers..."

This is meant as a warning to all those still lingering around the lying Vishwananda.

You can also verify this comment by going to visit Aniruddha directly in India.

Another guru, Ammachi called Vishwananda a "snake."

And many devotees have seen Vishwananda with a tail, including me.

Also, Vishwananda is not the reincarnation of Yogananda.
He's shape-shifting in the etheric realm to make people think that.
Don't believe it.
Get out while you still can.

A few years ago, I asked Jesus what was Vishwananda's true name?
You can only cast out a demon by calling out his true name.

Jesus said that Vishwananda was "Asmodeus," the demon of lust.

This is a very powerful this prayer to gain protection:

Archangel Michael,

Defend us in Battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And do thou oh Prince of the Heavenly Host, cast out Asmodeus/Satan,
and all evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.
