Is Nithyananda a Cult Leader?

The leading publicity agent that the Nithyananda ashram refers to as the “Social Media Queen” shows perfectly how she is cult controlled, ironically by her video “Spiritual Teacher or Cult Leader. How do you know your Guru didn’t brainwash you?” Mr James III provides an examination of comments from Ma Nithya Swarupapriyananda about being in a Cult Six Conditions for Thought Reform Margaret Thaler Singer, Ph. D.   6 Cult Assesment Criteria MT Singer PhD Nithyananda Organization 1. Keep the person unaware of what is going on and how she or he is being changed a step at a time. Potential new members are led, step by step, through a behavioral-change program without being aware of the final agenda or full content of the group. The goal may be to make them deployable agents for the leadership, to get them to buy more courses, or get them to make a deeper commitment, depending on the leader’s aim and desires. NithyanandaCULT does this this through various methods including: Constant surprise events and changes Urge to attend daily satsangs Urge to do completions Regular immersing in marketing propaganda eg: Mahasadashivoham Urging to become adheenavasi or sannyasi 2. Control the person’s social and/or physical environment; especially control the person’s time. Through various methods, newer members are kept busy and led to think about the group and its content during as much of their waking...

Why was Nithyananda so “unjustly” arrested?

Devotees cry foul because Nithyananda was jailed for 53 days Nithyananda devotees cry and rant about their beloved Swami being imprisoned for 53 days. They say it was unjust and he had not even been convicted yet was jailed. There are however, some pertinent facts that they leave out, either conveniently or through lazy ignorance. The primary reason Nithyananda was arrested was because at the early stages of police investigation, in a panic, and against advice of those around him, he ran and attempted to hide from the police. Most would say that in itself is a pertty high sign of his guilt. Eventually the police caught up with him and of course, as he had fled, arrested him. Clearly he was a flight risk and his flee simply compounded the likelihood of his guilt so he naturally was remanded in custody until bail was finalised 53 days later. A commenter on StandUpForDharma forum speaks very comprehensively on this in his page so I will his or her comments here.   the experience of one who broke free of nithyananda cult Nithy’s Episode (A Summary of Events) – Part 2 Dear Nithy, I was a close ex-member of your mission, thoroughly  brainwashed and not realizing that your organization was a cult.

How to recognise a cult

HOW TO RECOGNISE A CULT – Mind Control Anyone from Nithyananda Ashram and no longer a cultee can easily recognise Nithyananda tactics in this video. Step by Step – How to create a cult This was from an anonymous comment on a post of the above video on July 1, 2011 on AOLfree WordPress site. It was written for Art of Living but applies very well to the Nithyananda Cult: 1 – Get a ‘commitment’ from some one to take part in a course – “This is awesome, this will improve your health, I’ve benefited greatly”. 2 – Brand that course as something – ‘personality development’, ‘mangement course’, ‘health sibir’ 3 – Give them some knowledge, course points, personality tips, tests, meditations. Promise them their dreams – “We can teach you special stuff to make the world better, let us make the world better” 4 – Give them attention, separate them from each other, surround them with true believers -“Follow up” 5- Surround them, find their week spots,bring in the group ego in them. 6 – Provide a glorified message – “Nothing in this world is more important than the higher cause” 7 – Control their behavior. Describe them a schedule – “Weekly sadhana, seva, satsang” 8 – Restrict their eating habits – “Satvik food, no egg and fish” 9 – Control their emotions 10 – Create some hallucinations,...

Nithyananda is hurting my Religious Sentiments

Nithyananda and his blindly following devotees including former actress Ranjitha, have attempted to quash the use of the sex romp sleaze video of Nithyananda and Ranjitha (video footage confirmed yet again this time in late 2017 by the FSL and CID) by saying it is “hurting their religious sentiments”. If someone is in a religious cult, any evidence against that cult is of course going to “hurt their religious sentiments”. Despite his claims of millions of followers, Nithyananda has less than 1500 actual devotees. If someone watches a video it doesnt make him a devotee. So there are at most 1500 people in a cult with their “religious sentiments hurt”. Boo hoo! for those 1500 people. What about the 80% of Indians, some 1 billion people that are having our Hindu religious sentiments hurt by someone who took Sannyasi vows and is now having sex romps with women and allegedly men, using his power and probably mind control conditioning techniques to rape women? Well Mr Tiru Rajashekaran (Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s real name, as there is no third party evidence substantiating your claim to “Paramahamsa”) YOU ARE HURTING MY RELIGIOUS SENTIMENTS according to Section 144! You are hurting them by while proclaiming your teachings as the original authentic Hindu teachings you are: Actively indicating that sannyasi vows mean nothing Lying about innumerable items Lying that your birth date is 1st January...
