It almost seems like a joke that of all the people Sri Nityananda has to be involved in a controversy of this nature.........
There has been many allegations of fraud against swami nityananda previously as is common for all men with fame and following but none of this nature and magnitude.
Recently in SUN NEWS a video had been released featuring Swami Nithyanandha in which Nityananda was having a secret sexual affair with a south Indian actress.
All the devotees are deeply shaken and there is chaos everywhere......
Only thing that can be said with certainity is that this scandal has deeply shaken the mission of Swamiji directly to its roots....
The video definitely shows a man who is swamiji or a hollywood-movie-type clone of him....What is the truth cannot be ascertained right now!!!
Swamiji has said that the video is a morphed one and blames one of his inmates Premananda alias Lenin Karuppan, for the morphing of his face with the idea of defaming him. It is said that Swamiji tried to stop the airing of the video footage but a civil court did not grant any stay.
The petition has been posted to March 8 for further hearing.
Meanwhile Nithyananda Dhyanpeetam has given the response to the whole controversy as follows,
