Me and my master - The Scandal

This blog is my running journal of my chance meeting with Paramahamsa Nithyananda and how it has changed my life infinitely for the better

But before I start, I need to recount some recent events. I was chatting online just after the scandal around Swamiji broke out to figure out what happened and then got a call from Ram S Ram aka advaitananda. He said that this as just the tip of the iceberg and that swami wa having affairs with more than 18 women. And that all that is going to come out soon. He also mentioned the discrepancy in his dob in the passport. Since Adavait was sort of close to the ashram, this worried me to no end. Nothing in my 2 year association with Swamiji even slightly hinted that such a thing was possible. So I was stuck between believing myself and believing some dubious middle man. Luckily I stuck with myself.

Swami has since explained how in India people don't care much for their birthday and typically give any date. The same was the case with my mother... So I knew first hand how these things worked. 

In the last 3 months all the accusations against him have fallen apart and there has not been even one victim complaining. Not one! So I wonder what all this scandal was about. 

Luckily for me I stayed on with him and hence have not lost a precious treasure. Though I would be lying if I said that the calls and the video did not shake up my faith then.  Many others were not so lucky and lost something quite precious. I do hope they will realize their folly. 

So.. How did I meet Swami and what did I get out of him that makes me wax so eloquent about him?

Stay tuned for the next post then..
