On 12th June 2010, the fundamental right of freedom to teach and speak in public was denied and suspended for Paramahamsa Nithyananda.
From 9th July 2010, after almost a month finally, because of Devotees pleas to the High Court, Swamiji was given permission from the court to continue to give his regular public discourses and satsangs.
On 11th July, 2010 He gave his first satsang after the ban was lifted. The first topic Swamiji spoke on was – FREEDOM.
Swamiji declares even though violence has been done to him, he will triumph through the power of non-violence and Enlightenment.
“How much ever humanity tries to imprison me, I will always liberate humanity”
-His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda
Controversial godman Nithyananda was arrested in April, charged with several crimes as serious as rape after tapes showed him with a Tamil actress, is currently out on bail.
Swami Nithyananda faces charges as serious as rape, unnatural sex, and fraud. and he was greeted with hostility when he was brought Karnataka after his arrest. but there are still many people who seem to believe the young godman was framed. At Nithyananda’s headquarters at Bidadi near Bangalore, the Godmen is back in residence, after more than 50 days in custody. His followers had fasted for his release and witness this purification ceremony on his return to the ashram. The freeze on the ashram’s bank accounts has now been lifted.
Swamiji is on bail and accounts have been defreezed. All are happy. We are filing a petition for 2 FR, FR 141 and FR 142. The hearing is going on.
The state on its part does not seem to be able to gather the evidence it needs to make charges. Investigating officers would not comment. But the perception is, the case is falling apart. And Nithyananda may not be legally convicted, to what is very least, letting down of many of his many followers.
When the ashram gained access to its funds in a few days time, it will once again start its charitable activities. Swami Nithyananda is also back at his residence here at his Bidadi headquarters. And his followers do seem to hope that the scandal surrounding him will eventually disappear because of lack of evidence.
Self styled Godman Nithyananda is back at his ashram on the outskirts of Bangalore. He’s out on bail after the scandalous sex video put him on dock. The swami’s disciples has now plans for spiritual soul cleansing for negativities. This involves some yoga and havan. The court has released him on bail with the condition that he wouldn’t teach or preach.
Self styled God man Nithyananda has broken his silence, yet again. Now, this is for the first time after being released from jail, Nithyananda spoke on the alleged sex scam seeing that he has been involved in. He vehemently defended actress Ranjitha and claimed that she was innocent. Nithyananda made a fervent plea on a recorded statement put up on the internet and said that Ranjitha has been a sincere devotee and that she should not have been targeted.
Now he said it was unfair to bring her into the picture and that her family had been deeply hurt, by what had transpired over the last few weeks. Now recently it was reported that Ranjitha had said that she had adopted Nithyananda and bequeathed her property to the God man. Now Nithyananda had claimed that the scandal had not hurt him. He said people should have targeted him if they wanted revenge. He said that they should not have targeted the ashram or his devotees.
Newscaster: Can you say a few words about Ranjitha.
Swami Nithyananda: As I expressed earlier, when the scandal broke out, I did not feel hurt for myself. But I felt greatly hurt – all the pain and suffering caused my devotees, especially to Ranjitha. Please understand, people who want to attack me, take revenge on me, should have directly persecuted me. And it’s very easy. I am always available in public continuously. They could have done thousands of things. Instead of taking revenge on me, they should not have ruined the life of my devotees. She is such a sincere, humble devotee. I really feel greatly hurt for the suffering, caused to her and to her family. I send my sincere prayers and blessings to her and to her family. She is such a wonderful devotee who has done so much of volunteering work to the organization. All I can say is that I feel greatly hurt for the suffering caused to her and to her family.
