His Holiness Sri Bhagwan Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji, is a young Enlightened yogi and living Incarnation with unimaginable superhuman powers. He is part of a 5000-year-old lineage of enlightened yogic masters who live and train on the sacred mountain of Arunachala in Southern India. Swamiji is an adept in the mystical yogic sciences whose specialty is the awakening of the mighty Kundalini, our own highest potential energy. With a vision to raise the consciousness of our planet, He is working tirelessly to awaken individuals and communities to their highest possibility - a life of completion, power, bliss and Advaita, Oneness.

Just like Adi Shankaracharya, Swamiji is a bridge between the traditions of South India and North India. He is the 293rd Adheenam of the Madurai Adheenam, the most ancient monastic institution headquartered in Madurai in South India. His Holiness has established His headquarters in Bangalore Adheenam. In North India, Swamiji has been declared as the Mahamandaleshwar of Sri Panchayati Maha Nirvani Akkada in 2007 Allahabad Ardha Kumbha Mela and coronated at the 2013 Kumbha Mela in Allahabad.

Swamiji is tirelessly working to revive the Vedic Tradition such as delivering the truths of the Upanishads and other sacred texts, successfully restoring the Gurukul system and making Sanatana Hindu Dharma practical and accessible to every human being on this planet, transforming their lives and promoting peaceful living. Swamiji’s contribution to the Sanatana Hindu Dharma includes spreading it all over India and the world by establishing 35 temples and 1000’s of meditation centers worldwide, publishing over 300 books in 26 languages, giving over 10000 hours of discourses all of which He has made available for free on the Internet and which have already drawn over 20 million views, revitalizing the ancient tradition of deity making and sacred arts, establishing universities in USA and Europe to transmit spiritual knowledge, and conducting meditation and yoga programs and discourses for millions worldwide.

Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Swamiji has not only experienced and demonstrated Himself the spiritual powers of the Vedic tradition but also shown that He is an incarnation (avatar) by successfully initiating millions worldwide into these siddhis including mystical powers like spiritual healing, Third Eye AwakeningTM, levitation, teleportation, going beyond the need for food (nirahara samyama), among various other powers. He is acknowledged worldwide for His spiritual healing powers that have healed millions to date from all kinds of physical, mental, psychological ailments. He has been able to provide life solutions to millions in all spheres of their lives – health, wealth, relationships and spiritual growth.

Swamiji has thus been impressively guiding the world with His infinite knowledge, new and clear activism, broad vision, ability to inspire people and execute, and the powers of an incarnation and enlightenment He expresses and awakens in others visibly. Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Swami is a powerful spiritual force that is instrumental in reviving the golden era of Sanatana Hindu dharma in the modern world.

Sri Nithyananda Swami (Swamiji) was rising fast in popularity in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, which was led by Atheists. By 2009 he was a dynamic force of Hinduism, especially his grand padayatra (marathon walk) during January 2009 reviving the true spirit of Hinduism in the hearts of lakhs of people. By December 2009, Swamiji had completed two very successful North American tours and his international reach was rapidly growing.

Land sharks eyeing donated land: People at large who benefited from Swamiji’s teachings, services and life solutions expressed their gratitude in many ways including joining his mission, donating in kind, donating their properties to enable building temples, schools, ashrams, etc, on the same. Prime property was donated to Swamiji in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, which attracted powerful forces and land sharks that coveted these properties. This is evident from the fact that during the extortion and blackmail, two properties were demanded in addition to money. Swamiji’s popularity as a Hindu guru also brought him into the radar of some vested interest media like Tamil tabloid Nakkeeran, and television channels of Sun Network (Sun TV, etc) who project their ideology as atheism.

Background of some players in the conspiracy

Vinay Bharadwaj:

- Vinay is a child rapist. In 2009 his shocking incidents of child abuse came to light and he was subsequently prosecuted by the police. The parents of the child happened to be devotees of Swamiji.

- He tried to prevent the parents from reporting the child abuse by threatening to put a false case of sexual abuse on Swamiji.

- He broached this topic with his confidante Arathi Rao asking her whether any sexual abuse by Swamiji had happened to her. She replied that no such incident had happened to her.

Arathi Rao:

- From 2004 Arathi Rao was suffering from 4 highly contagious sexually transmitted diseases (proof is her medical records from US courts and accepted by Indian Trial Court, given later)

- She came to Swamiji in 2005 for spiritual solace. From the beginning Swamiji and other disciples around him were well aware of her medical condition.

- She was estranged from her husband due to her infidelity (proof in her medical records) and was penniless. 

- Prior to her allegations, Arathi was known to openly relate to Swamiji as a mother to a child and even wrote a book describing the same. She went so far as to use the name “Mayi” which denotes mother. She even wrote a chapter on this in the book ‘When God is My Son’

How she got involved

- Estranged from her husband Arathi found solace and comfort in the company of one Lenin Karuppan in India. Penniless she was lured by the greed of making a lot of money (100 crore rupees)

Lenin Karuppan:

- Lenin came into the Nithyananda ashram in 2006 in the guise of a spiritual seeker to hide from the police.

- He was wanted by the police for magnetic sex bed scam, and for making pornographic movies. Already he had a prior history of blackmail.

- He was friends with Nakkeeran and SunTV - proof for this comes from Nakkeeran's statement that they knew him from a long time ago.

Tamil Tabloid Nakkeeran and Sun TV:

Nakkeeran Gopal was already notorious for his yellow journal Nakkeeran. He had close connection with Veerappan who was involved with international smuggling of sandalwood from South India and extortion cases including kidnapping of the veteran Kannada actor Dr. Rajkumar.

Sun TV is a TV network in Tamil Nadu. Their reputation can be inferred from two incidents that happened much later:

-The COO Hansraj Saxena split from them, and revealed in 2012 that they concocted news items to blackmail people, including the Nithyananda video, which he said was created similarly for extortion purposes. Saxena came on over half a dozen television channels with this confession and also gave a sworn affidavit to the Court also detailing the modus operandi of Sun TV and its extortion rackets and how the persecution video was also an attempt to blackmail and extort huge money just like they had fabricated false videos similarly at least 7 times before.




Despite all the attacks done on Swamiji, He is continuing to work tirelessly for the welfare of humanity. He's sharing enlightenment to the world when he didn't have to.

The court has proven all allegations against Swamiji as false BUT we can STILL see abusive and morphed videos on YouTube! When the court has convicted all the criminals for their planned sustained attacks on Swamiji, blaspheming His Holiness Sri Bhagwan Paramahamsa Nithyananda, why then such malicious content is still available on Youtube? This is an insult and a disrespect to our Enlightened Master Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji and to the sacred Sanatana Hindu Dharma. If we don't take the responsibility to stand up for and protect our Gurus and Sanatana Hindu Dharma by making sure such fake and abusive content is removed, then we are only supporting adharma (unrighteousness).

The videos are highly offensive and tell a complete lie to the public. Swamiji is innocent, and yet such content on YouTube deceives and misleads the public. By not taking down such fake content, millions of spiritual seekers will be misguided and deprived of the chance to learn from an Enlightened guru. Furthermore, these videos are making a mockery of Hinduism.  We urge YouTube to immediately remove all materials defaming the well-known Enlightened Hindu guru, Bhagwan Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji.

Refer to the links below for proof where the court has dismissed all allegations against Swamiji:

1. High Court of Madras orders thorough investigation into religious persecution and conspiracy against Swami Nithyananda

“The Hon’ble High Court of Madras, in its order on a petition filed by Ms. Ranjitha, whose morphed photographs with Swami Nithyananda were published in certain media as a part of a bigger conspiracy by the media houses and individual criminals, ordered for further thorough investigation to be done into the conspiracy and all criminals involved in this be brought to book.”

2. Arathi Rao, Lenin and Sun TV executives chargesheeted for extortion and criminal conspiracy against Swami Nithyananda

“In a major development in the conspiracy surrounding Swami Nithyananda, the Chennai Crime Branch CID, filed the chargesheet reporting the results of the 5 year investigation in the case of conspiracy and extortion done on Swami Nithyananda.”

3. Sannyasi of Nithyananda ashram passes away due to cardiac arrest - Mother's statement about her healing

“Ms. Sangeetha Arjunan (Ma Nithya Turiyateetananda), a sannyasi at Nithyananda ashram passed away on 28 December 2014 due to sudden cardiac arrest. Her family has had a history of cardiac problems leading to death at a young age. Her sister and cousin also had died at a young age due to cardiac problems.  Her cousin had also died of cardiac arrest one day before Ms. Sangeetha. Hospital sources confirmed that Ms. Sangeetha’s death was a natural death as well given her family history of heart issues. Ms. Sangeetha's mother also had expressed deep gratitude at how on her daughter's death she was helped to come out of depression and healed of her heart and kidney failure by Sri Nithyananda Swami.”

4. Television channel ordered to repeatedly apologise to Ranjitha on its channel

“Justice AP Shah (retired)-led self regulatory body, Broadcast Content Complaints Council (BCCC), directed the channel ‘Star Vijay’ to apologise to Ranjitha Menon for telecast of its programme ‘Nadanthadhu Enna Kutramum Pinnaniyum’ on 21 March 2012. The channel has been asked to run a scroll featuring the following apology scroll in Tamil and English, one after the other, in large and legible bold fonts at normal speed, every two hours on its channel for seven days starting September 9 at 12 noon to September 16 at 10 am:..”

5. Paramahamsa Nithyananda's medical reports proves his innocence

“Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s medical report shows clearly no STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) which clearly proves that the allegations of rape on him by the alleged victim (carrier of highly contagious, incurable STD genital herpes) are absolutely baseless and false. As alleged by the alleged victim, if there was indeed over 50 incidents of sexual abuse including sexual intercourse and oral sex as alleged, then the STD would have been transmitted to Nithyananda. This is because the STD herpes-2 (genital herpes) is highly contagious and spreads even through skin contact and saliva and not necessarily through sexual contact.”

6. 54+ World Media publish the video analysis report exposing the falsity of the scandal video on which the whole scandal is spun around Swamiji

“Citing the video analysis report by 4 US experts of the maliciously created video showing Paramahamsa Nithyananda with a woman, media worldwide have published over 50 reports with the title 
‘Paramahamsa Nithyananda: One of World's 100 Most Spiritually Influential Personalities - Target of Fake Video Scandal - US Experts Rip Apart Authenticity of Morphed Video.’”



All the videos have violated YouTube rules in one or more ways:

1) Sexual harassment and sexual bullying

The disturbing sexual content of these videos are proven to be MORPHED by over 60 technical reasons cited in the detailed forensic analysis of the video by 4 forensic experts from USA with the expertise of forensic investigation of FBI cases

The videos are abusive and pornographic aimed solely to deliberately  humiliate and defame Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda.

2) Hate speech

These videos are promoting hate and violence against Swamiji when he has been proven by court to be completely innocent. Swamiji is the Mahamandaleshwar (Head) of Sri Panchayati Maha Nirvani Akkada (oldest apex body of Hinduism), hence the videos are also encouraging hate and violence against Hinduism. Yet, these videos continues to be on Youtube. 

3) Nudity and sexual content




We urge YouTube to remove ALL defamatory, abusive, pornographic and FAKE videos about Bhagwan Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji immediately. These videos are not only defaming Swamiji, who is Mahamandaleshwar (Head) of Sri Panchayati Maha Nirvani Akkada (oldest apex body of Hinduism) but are making a mockery of Hinduism. We also request YouTube to prevent such abusive and false content to be posted in the future. The list below includes some but not all channels that have posted such videos:
