Nithyananda has made his third appearance online, and for the first
time makes a passing reference to the scandalous video stating "that he
was not going to experiment anything that was not accepted by society
widely." A self-proclaimed PR guru to whom the Swami has been giving a
series of interviews says in the video that "there is nothing illegal
in it (video) where two people with their clothes on are present." To
this, the Swami nods in agreement.
He goes on to say
that no one "was forcing anything on the other" — in other words, the
first acceptance of the fact that it was indeed Swami Nithyananda who
was in the video.
Nithyananda claims that the ashram was busy
concentrating on the spiritual activities that they could not smell the
attack coming.Our public relations was a disaster.We are
not trained to face attacks, and we never thought of something like
After a lot of uncontrollable activities were seen in the ashram
(after the scandal broke out), devotees were afraid that something
would happen to me.
They were busy securing the ashram while the
accusations mounted. The third online appearance of the Swami it seems
is an effort to rebuild the lost image of the ashram.ATTACK WAS ORGANISEDWe are a silent group and simple people. We never thought we would ever have an enemy in the disguise of a devotee.
media should have taken our version too, before reacting on the
accusations, instead of taking one sided view.
As the media is more
popular among the public than me, people have believed the accusations
made. It was an organised attack, and we never saw the threat
approaching.NONE CAME TO HELPNobody came for our help even when we were socially acceptable.Even
during that time we did not receive any help.
However, after things
have turned against us, even the locals have turned against us. The
media just aired one version of the story while none of the devotees
were approached by the media. The media gave just one side of the story.POLICE UPDATEThe local Bidadi police continue guarding the ashram where there was no fresh development.The
police continued on their stand that the case hadn't been transferred
to them as yet.
The ashram has just about 20 inmates remaining.
Although Nithyananda claimed that there was a threat to his life, which
is why he is still not accessible, Bidadi police said that so far none
from the ashram had approached them for security.
