Some how we may need to group ourselves and communicate.
I created a yahoo group for this purpose.
All, please continue to share your experiences at http://standup-for-nithyananda.blogspot.com/
I am not sure how to use that site for grouping people together. To do this i created a yahoo group email@example.com
Post message: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to be added to the group, please identify yourself and if possible give your phone number. Else there is no way to validate.
Identify yourself in as many way as possible. The acceptance might not be immediate, and there can be some delays, so please bear with me on this.
This forum is for grouping people together. Request this to be kept simple and not to have any violent messages.
How to identify you - the yahoo group creator? In the same blog i have posted at least couple of times. That's the only proof that exists.
Have you met swami? - No. The Youtube videos and books written by swami has helped me a lot and have kept me thinking a lot, that's enough.
Some how we may need to group ourselves and communicate.
We need to act, yes we need to act but when, lets make it now. We all devotees must do something for our swamiji who did a lot for us, who came to this earth just us. Lets join our hand, energy, brain and everything we have. my mail id email@example.com. Do mail me on any suggestion.
I am writing this mail, because i am in sick of frustration, i am regular reader of swamiji's presentation in net.
From first day i am being the regular student of swami. Even i cannot sit without thinking of swamiji in the current situation.
But i am wondering how many people got cured by his touch.. How many people got awakened by his teachings. How many poor people got meal for their hungry stomach... why no one, I am wondering why you people could not able to raise against the culprit.. Lenin Karuppan (crimincal case against this guy in salem for illegal selling of magnet bed).
- Why there is no support rally didn't take place..?
- I am asking you people.. After joining a political party, after working their as a sweaper for three years.. if i tell these political leaders took money or they rapped several girls.. If i tell that will police man arrest that leaders without any proper evidence? first of all will they accept that complaint ?
- If i tell "they raped me " in phone as a mimicry artist can do this.. will they accept this as a victim..
- See, if a girl really got rapped by swamiji, definitly she would have come forward.. (as a girl came against sitting minister in karnataka).. Why no-one came forward.. because no -one is there?
- What they want, they wants to defame "Swami Nithyananda!" they wants to defame hindu Gurus.. they wants stop hinduism...
- Why nakkeeran and other media is defaming swami.. ? They wants money from missionaries.. They wants to do "jaaldra" for suntv.
- I feels shame because this lenin karruppan is a tamilian...
- People who ever got healed by him.. please come forward.. send telegraphs/emails to President, PM, CMs, judges.. what you have got.. Tell them how is ur mother/father/sister/brother after getting healing from swamiji..
- I am appealing the devottees from all oever the world file a case against that lenin karuppan by asking to him to produce "vitness",, by asking "evidence" in front of the court..
- I know No-One is perfect in this world.. But before telling against anybody please see yourself first?
I am praying .. People who ever got healing.. got transformation please raise!!
I'v heard about this scandal lately, a few days back and I was in my car, driving to work on 25 of April at 8:30 am, when the prayer had started there in India. I had no idea, but the interesting thing is, I just had started it simultaneously with you! Then at the evening, comming back from work,I found your appeal,but did not know about it at the morning. Great idea! Thanks! Om hreeem Nithyananda namaha!
Below is an email from a Bidadi Ashramite sent on 29th April
All is well in Bidadi, for those of you who do not know, Swamiji is
currently being questioned by the police about complaints laid against
him. We anticipate he will be released in a few days.If you have
questions or need clarity write directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
let us keep these group chats for comments to be shared with the whole
The Media character assassination continues, here are some examples
from the last few days:
One Media entry a few days ago said that Nithyanand was in deep
trouble for having $7,000 in his possession when he was arrested.
There were a total of 4 people arrested , including Swamiji, and that
means less than $2000 each,. It appears that $ 2000 is the limit that
people should have. So another made up story by a very creative
writer looking for an angle. Illogical.
Then here was the tiger skin story, based on CDs from the ashram that
show Swamiji sitting on synthetic fabrics that have tiger patterning
on them in the Himalayas trip. The media published stories saying he
had a whole pile of wild animal skins!
Then there is the Tamil Tiger story- Accusing Swamiji of money
laundering via the Tamil Tigers!!!! The Tamil Tigers are a Sri Lankan
rebel group. Whose international transactions are the subject of a lot
of scrutiny. Who in their right minds would do that? But a reporter
could invent the story for sensational ends.
Then the gold smuggling story..Swamiji smuggling gold in his
mala! .another illogical concept as gold has a global price for small
amounts, and with Swamiji flying once a year back from the USA, why
bother! But a great story for sensation even if it does not make
We have seen that media is inventing these stories constantly for
instance: They have been quoting the police when we can prove that the
police did not have the evidence to make the statement: Eg taking
from the web department hard drives which have all our web photos
and material, and the media saying that the police obtained
information about financial wrongdoings!
Then some more stories for you:
In one town where we have a center the people from the center were
watching TV, and the reporters said their center had been attacked and
windows broken.. But there was no damage to the center. A few minutes
later vandals arrived and broke the windows that were reported as
being broken. I guess the vandals and the media had not coordinated
In another center the center was fine. The police called and said is
all ok? And the police decided to come and visit. On their way they
came across a TV news crew broken down on the road, so they brought
them with them. The film crew filmed the center looking lovely.
They returned and the TV news people put on the news that the center
had been damaged, with photos of the undamaged center alongside photos
of another demonstration that took place in another part of India!
What can you do?
Continue to radiate and be blissful, dont watch too much news and
enjoy every moment!!!
My heart is filled with nothing but gratitude towards Swamiji. I was
born anew by his touch.
My respected Swamiji, Thanks for coming into my life. You are keeping me alive. whenever I hear you, I get so much strength. Please one day come into my dream and tell me something if I am blessed by you. Master, please come inside me and give me shelter at your feet like lotus. If you think I respect you and believe in you, please give me your answer how do I live my life with my situation. With much respect and love
Sincerely yours Indrani

The CID has reportedly been able to locate Tamil actress Ranjitha, with whom Nithyananda was shown in secretly recorded videos having sex with, somewhere in Thiruvananthapuram.
The Siasat Daily
29 April 2010
Respecting their call, the Tamil actress came from Andhra Pradesh on Wednesday evening and met the CID Police. Later, they took her to a secret place to interrogate her. According to the police sources, the actress will be considered as the witness for Nithyananda's case.
The Siasat Daily
30 April 2010
Chennai, April 30: A legal notice has been issued to Internet major Google and its subsidiary YouTube on behalf of actress Ranjitha asking them to remove the video clips, purportedly linking her with Swami Nithyananda by 5 pm on May 2. The notices were issued by a Delhi-based law firm, P M Law Chambers.
“Releasing a ‘statement of Ms Ranjitha’ to the media on Thursday, advocate Prashant Mendiratta of PM Law Chambers, said that it was her first statement to the media after March 2. It claimed that her purported interviews published by a few publications were ‘totally fabricated’ and ‘totally false’.”
01 May 2010
She had ‘disappeared’ after the alleged sex scandal became public on March 2. Several attempts by the CID to trace her failed till Mr Mendiratta on her behalf issued legal notices to Google and Youtube asking them to remove the videotape from their websites by May 2.
Black & Dark Side of Media
Media keeps on twist and turns a lot of facts on Guru Paramahamsa Nithyananda false allegation. Media trying very hard to influence CID team, police and devotees by releasing false and malicious facts on their media. There cannot be any other reason, why media taking a lot of effort and continuously publish false allegation about or Guru Nithyananda on their media other than they are directed and paid by top politician. Media just dance to tune of this politician to earn immoral earning.
Please refer to the above media reports and notice that the discrepancies in their facts:
Deccan Herald reported on 28 April 2010, CID team located whereabouts Ranjitha. The Siasat Daily further enhances this by reporting on 29 April 2010, the CID team called Ranjitha and interrogate her at a secret location. This report is contradicted with Deccan Chronicle report 01 May 2010 saying CID team fail to trace Ranjitha since 02 March 2010.
The Siasat Daily reported on 30 April 2010 Ranjitha never gives any interview to any of the media since 02 March 2010, what about a few reports previously reported by the media as Ranjitha statement?
ALMIGHTY GOD TO BRING THE TRUTH AND JUSTICE
Is godliness a debatable issue ?
can godliness be weighed by any government rules and regulations?
Does the godliness answerable to the court run by humans?
Are we again nailing the jesus in the cross?
High time to go with the slippers & the broom sticks & banners to stop the malicious defamation attempts & assacination of the charachter & personal privacy of the master & his ashram, in large mass to ETV, SUN TV & Lenin's house,police department & judicial department.Like how kalki bhagavan's dasjies demanded the arrest of those who tried to defame the pure relationship with their Guru/Bhagavan infront of the police & judges.Let us do hunger strike to release Nithyananda & to protest the arrest without even giving the benefit of doubt & trail. will they arrest cm's or pm's son if anyone complaints of rape, molestation, smuggling,illegal occupation of the land ect in the same way?Yadiyurappa has occupied the whole streets of shimoga city as his private property. anyone is there to question the execution of dharma on this earth?Nithyananda's lawyer should be a person with deep commitment to get justice to the Ashram & it's founder.many blessings to your defamtion petition.
Dear devotees/supporters of Sri Nithyananda,
I'd like to extend my support in these trying times. I regularly read through this website "standup-for-nithyananda" and cannot but see how many lives have been touched in a positive way. I've never seen swamiji in person, in fact I didn't even know about him until sept of 2009 when his he was planning his trip to NY, USA.
One suggestion/request I'd make is please start a website/blog etc that'll "debunk" all this non-stop nonsense coming out of the media. There is simply so many inconsistencies, rumors, hearsay and gossip mongering that's masquerading as "News"...
Setting up a website that'll debunk the myths that's being peddled in the name of News is the best service to Swamiji at this time.... Even if actual truth is not available at this time, to expose the inconsistencies in the media reporting itself will go a long way to counter the negativity...
Please do the needful.
Now some media seems to be kicking up a sensational dust about funds - especially in MILLIONs and CRORES. Be Aware, Just looking at these words may send some of the mass reeling in awe !
They say total assets may be $5.7 million and net gain for whole year may be approximately $ 2.2 million. This is PEANUTS .. We can't even buy a good apartment in New York for $2 million dollars. Most big cities good homes with gardens cost millions of dollars.
Now WE are running a global Organization. Most organizations in India and world wide have HUNDREdS of MILLIONS of dollars in net gain for their progress.
What can we do with $ 2 million dollars which is approximately Rs 19 crore when most political and spiritual and religious leaders gleefully came and inaugurated our 2012 Mission Vision project which needs Rs 205 CRORE just for build up!
How do we raise the rest of the Rs 185 crore from? which is almost $20 million ? We have seen lines and lines of people come for free stuff - free satvic food, free blessings, free medical camps, any free meditation programs, but when it comes to raising money or standing up for us where are they?
Instead we have a BUNCH OF ONE EYED YELLOW media looking at $ 2 million dollars and ballooning up and creating mass negativity and trying to sway the mass into negativity.
The projects we have were solely for the general mass, for the public - to raise their consciousness and intelligence.
See the lifestyle of our Master and all ashramites. It bare necessities, simple slippers, simple clothing, simple satvic food, basic travel, minimum belongings simple living - no TV, no glamour - Where as on the output side - full of positive energy working for 18 to 20 hours each day , solely for the mission, with full of LOVE AND COMPASSION, ever smiling and ever welcoming !
Can we find Such a lifestyle anywhere in the society ?
Wake up see the Reality -
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

I consider Swamiji Nithyananda Paramahamsa as one of my many
Masters with a living body.
My main Master is Guruji Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (from Art Of Living).
Unlike most other disciples/devotees (in all organizations), I see
all Masters as different forms of the same One All-pervading
Consciousness. So I do my best not to miss a chance to be in the
physical presence of any of these Beings, although I just follow my
Gurudev's techniques for my daily Sadhana (otherwise too many
techniques causes confusion).
A friend of mine had introduced me to Swamiji's youtube videos,
and I simply got hooked by them. The connection was instantaneous.
I just love His videos and am so glad that they are free on youtube.
Whenever I watch His discourses, the Being in me just resonates
in agreement. Something inside me says "Yes! That is Exactly how it is!
How else could it be?". He puts Truth in such simple, beautiful words.
Each new video I watch, I almost feel as if something within me opens.
It is hard to believe that a fake can do that. Whenever I hear His
discourses, intuition tells me that He is speaking the Truth from Direct
I have never found any difference in what Swamiji says from what
my Gurudev (or for that matter from what any True Master) says.
They just use different words and different examples.
Although sadly each devotee/disciple keeps arguing that only his
Master is the greatest of all (just like religions). Most of them limit
the Master to his physical form and name.
This is why I was impressed when Swamiji (in one of His videos)
encouraged seekers to go to different Masters (not in the wrong
sense of Guru shopping, but to appreciate that techniques and
Grace of all Masters are equally valid and would lead us to radiate
Love and Enlightenment). This prevents devotees from becoming
close-minded and developing a fortress mentality ("ours is the only
and the best way" kind of thinking).
After nearly an year of watching His videos, I finally had a chance to
attend one of His Kalpataru programs in Los Angeles in His physical
presence last year (October 2009). It was a one-day event at the
beautiful Vedic Temple. I had done quite a few meditation programs
under different Masters before so I went with no special expectations.
I have to be honest here. That experience literally blew my mind away.
I had done several meditation programs under different Masters, but
that meditation in Kalpataru program with Swamiji was by far the most
intense meditation I have ever done!!! It was simply unbelievable. Literally
I don't know why all this scandal happened. I am not sure even if I am
qualified to guess. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have
come across Swamiji and His Teachings in my life. I believe it to be
because of the grace of the Guru.
I will only say this "May Truth Win"
A new wave of Terrorism exposed -> Psychological Terrorism: the culprit-> the media, their target ->the common man
The havoc that has been created by the media in the lives of the ordinary man can be termed as “Psychological Terrorism”. Terrorist organizations set out in creating fear in the minds of people. Terrorists: when they carry guns and rifles: people recognize them. Unfortunately, when they carry pens, camera and mikes, people are yet to recognize them for who they are. One is unclear what the terrorists gain by their actions. Why they go about planting bombs, killing innocent people. The same can be said about the “sensational news” and rumors generated by the media. One doesn’t know why they do it. But it is clear they want to create fear, confusion, chaos.
I see a similar pattern emerging in the current scenario. The terrorist activity is now turned psychological. The instrument in use is the media. Spreading false rumors, bizarre stories, overloading people with daily “sensational” news intended to create mistrust, loss of faith is the form that terrorism has taken today. People have been caught unawares. Their minds are simply being manipulated with daily doses of such ridiculously horror stories. Not giving the mind time to analyse what’s going on, not giving the people the time to use their common sense but to simply lap it all up straight from the mouth of the media!
Man without meditation becomes a victim to these psychological terrorist activities without even being aware of it. Sad to say… but the common man himself adds fuel to the fire by reacting to these and adding to these rumors by their violent reactions.
As many of us devotees are clearly saying “The media is throwing nonsensical rumors and headlines about Swamiji with such utter callousness. And this is happening everyday. Trying to mold the opinion of the common man – who may not have even heard of Swamiji until media put Him in the limelight!! The intention of the media wasn’t good which is apparent from the fact that they choose to put information that does not even stand for itself! ”
Shame on the media… Shame on the journalists who work for these media… Shame on them for not having tried to find out the truth…
One moment it was there, another moment it is gone. One moment we are here, and another moment we have gone. And for this simple moment, how much fuss we make! How much violence, ambition, struggle, conflict, anger, hatred, just for this small moment! Just waiting for the train in a waiting room on a station, and creating so much fuss: fighting, hurting each other, trying to possess, trying to boss, trying to dominate - all that politics. And then the train comes and you are gone forever.
Osho Take it Easy, Volume 1 Chapter 13
An explosive temper or a smoldering rage often masks a deep feeling of pain. We think that if we frighten people away, we can avoid being hurt even more. In fact, just the opposite is the case. By covering our wounds with armor we are preventing them from being healed. By lashing out at others we keep ourselves from getting the love and nourishment we need.
If this description seems to fit you, it's time to stop fighting. There is so much love available to you if you just let it in. Start by forgiving yourself: you're worth it.
