I have been listening to the teachings of Swami Nithyananda for quite
some time. His clarity in teaching and confidence is astounding and
only rare people can posses such in depth knowledge and compassion. He
is a great leader and a teacher and I truly wish that Swami gets due
respect for all his great work. I hope all these this difficult times
to finish quickly and I wish swami to continue to spread his teaching
to the humanity.
I read from india yahoo. Swamiji has chest pain.
I am so pain too. These days, my heart keeps on tears.
No matter I keep working, daily life, playing all the roles
in my daily life. I feel my heart is crying.
Can you give me some news from Swamiji?
Any senior disciples have any information?
Until I met Swamiji, people who I lived with made me think that I am nobody. But Swami made me think that I am very special and unique person. Before I met Swamiji last year my life was such a mess. I was so depressed that I even tried to kill myself. I went to my parents and family, other Swamis, counselors, psychiatric for guidance. But no one was able to do anything for me. Before last year I never listen or watched any of Swami’s discourse, because I was involved with other organization. Last year I attended Kalptaru program twice, just one glimpse of Swamiji, just one energy Darshan transformed me a lot. Since then my life took U-Turn. I am going back to my source. After that I went for IA program. During program I saw that Swamiji showered all his compassion and energy on all people around him. Now I am totally different person because of Swamiji. I am very blissful and calm person now. Any outer situation is not affecting me at all.
I am sure you will come out of these all situation soon and help people around the world. They cannot hide the Sun in a small pot.
I am very grateful to you Swamiji for giving me this new life.
Always In Nityananda
I agree with the comments of the devotees. We need to ACT. NOW. We need to mobilize a peaceful resistance of what is going on in the name of 'law'. All of us must participate in this. Also, I find it hard to believe that we have no devotees who are lawyers, journalists or independent social workers and can raise their voices against the injustices being done against Swamiji and the Ashram. Although this website is there, I doubt if it is being read by the general public. We need to do some brainstorming for ways in which our opinions and experiences can reach a larger audience.
The Socrates Triple Filter Test.
In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold Knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"
"Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything, I'd like you to
pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
"That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say. That's what I call the triple filter test."
The first filter is TRUTH. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are going to tell me is true?'
"No," the man said. "actually I just heard about it and..."
'All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of GOODNESS. Is what you are going to tell me about my friend something good?"
"No, on the contrary..."
"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left, the filter of USEFULLNESS. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"
"No, not really."
"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"
Friends, use this triple filter test each time you hear loose talk about any of your near and dear friends.
Let us at least not drop our sense of goodness and fairness, even though the surroundings are instigating doubts in the vicious mind. If we would do that for a parent or child in times of trial, surely the Guru deserves much more? I have not been an 'ardent devotee' like many others were around me. Yet, despite much confusion on hearing all the news reports and media, I am unable to retain any negative feelings in my heart, only feel gratitude for the bliss I experienced in his presence. And that is somehow constantly far more profound and enduring in the end. And even for that I thank the Master. Because that is Guru-Krupa.
I am registering my support. I still believe Swami Nithyanandam.
I've been folllowing some of whats happening in the last few weeks with Swami Nithyananda, whose teachings and meditations have helped me immensely.
As an educated,somewhat intelligent citizen of the country I can't help but think on how easily the masses can be swayed and antagonised by media. It scares me to think how many times I might have already done that, ie., misjudge people, ignore facts thinking media must've researched well and is doing a responsible job. Especially in this case, media seems to be craving for bits and pieces of information that will keep the willing and weak ( minded ) readers and listeners glued to the TV screens or columns of their newspaper. Has even one section of the media helped people get a balance veiw of the situation.
I can't help but have these questions and I am sure there are many out there who are wondering along similar lines -
1- If there is nothing illegal he has done then why are they still keeping him in police custody ? Police had 4 days to question him, what else are they interrogating him for ? Does the media ever ask these questions ?
2- Media says they found one deer skin etc. What if someone gifted it to ashram ? Also is it illegal to keep one deer skin in the ashram. They sell deer skins on the streets and stores in Haridwar. Why doesnt police raid these stores first ? Why cant the media mention what quantities of deer skin was found in the ashram, what amount is illegal ? Creating headlines seems to be more important than providing details.
3- Hurt religious sentiments ? My religious sentiments can be hurt whenever a priest forces me to place money in his hands when I go temples. Very well known temples. But I still go to these temples ignoring these priests, because my religious sentiment lies in my devotion and love for the deities, how the temple contributed to the community, how the chanting and prayers and the deeper significance of it enriched my life. People whose religious sentiments are hurt seem to have missed the whole essence of religion, and are missing those who are trying to stand for it.
They are waiting in the wings, ready to jump on the stage to get some limelight and shout, 'our religious sentiments are hurt'.
4- Sensational news and gossip seems to have become the 'main-course' for every meal we feed our minds. This is the 'nourishment' we feed our minds with. Our emotions are like dormant volcanoes, and our minds like ticking atom bombs, ready to explode at the smallest trigger. We analyse so much when have to invest 1 lakh rupees. Questions like, Where am I investing ? What kind of company is it ? What are my returns ? Is it really really safe to invest ? How come the 'news' we feed out mind doesn't undergo this analysis. It's our mind, which controls our emotional state and ultimately our well-being that's at risk here, isnt it ?
This is the ambience we live in, and we claim to live in a 'civilized society ' !!!!!
About 9 months ago I began watching swamijii's discourses on Youtube. I have always been a very sceptical person and never believed anyone easily. But some of my thoughest questions have been answered by Nithyananda and I could feel his higher level of consciousness even through the internet. So I have chosen him as my spiritual teacher.
I am a christian, not a hindu, but I can assure you: Swami Nithyananda is a holy man send by God.

Billion thanks for your Youtube discourses Master.
I can say that you helped me to become more and more "Unclutched"...
You helped me, now it's my turn to support you totally, from the btoom of my heart.
You did a lot of positif things, and finaly what some blind people recorded ?
Thank you again Nithyananda.My heart is with you...
I would like to give my vote of support for Swamiji. His teachings have transformed my life and I have received nothing but love and support from my master.
Dearest Swamiji, I am so shocked that you have been arrested, I feel for you and for all your devotees and ashramites, it must be very painful,I pray and meditate and I am with you whatever may happen, we are all one and nobody is ever separate,with all my love and respects,
I am so thankful for all your inspiring talks that helped me in my path,

“The department may penalise and even forfeit his sprawling ashram built on 21.10 acres of land, said Ramanagara deputy commissioner G.N. Chandrashekhariah. The deputy commissioner told this newspaper that according to the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, the ashram is illegally built on agricultural land.”
“Also, as per the Land Reforms Act, 1961 only an agriculturist is entitled to hold agricultural land. The officer is in the process of sending his report to the government on the land irregularities in the Dhyanapeetam ashram.”
“The private land was gifted to self-acclaimed godman Nithyananda, for which he had duly paid the gift tax to the revenue department, said Ramanagara tahsildar Natesh. “It is registered in Nithyananda’s name. Following the notice, some of his ashram inmates came to us and showed us documents in which they had got around three acres of land alienated (converted for use of non-agricultural purposes) but the rest of the 18 acre land is agricultural and has not been alienated,” said the tahsildar.”
For the statement above, I would like to comment as follow:
Initially it was reported the ashram and temple have been built illegally on government land but this was proved wrong by document produce by ashram. Later it was reported the land was taken by force from the land owner but this also was proven wrong when the land owner admit donate the land. Now it is reported the land is only for agriculture and illegal to build ashram or temple (see first 2 paragraphs above), again this also proven wrong by ashram produce prove (see last paragraphs above).
I wanted to see to what extend this people will go further to find fault on our Guru.
This is really a war between evil against our Guru.

“The CID sleuths have not been approached by any victims, as contended by Lenin in his complaint. Nithyananda has been in the custody of the CID police for five days now but no victim has come forward to testify against him though the police had assured the public that their identity will be kept a secret.”
For the statement above, I would like to comment as follow:
I personally feel that no one will come forward and make any complain against our Guru since I suspected the allegation was fabricated by media directed by top politician unless now the top politician makes an effort to prepare a “victim”
