IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS
To: Nithyananda-cult blogger
I’m posting on this site because you filter almost everything on your site. Do you even realize how many defamatory statements you have made?! You can be subject to criminal and civil penalties for your actions. I have to admit you got balls. You claim to be an insider! You are inside out! The Parallel universe to which you refer is called Hinduism! My God, give it a rest. Just because you don’t get some of our ancient customs, it does not give you the right to distort the truth. Your actions border on hate speech. You are one of many who have attacked the Hindu tradition for centuries and you won’t be the last. Ignorance I can deal with, but your intentional distortion of our culture is being used to defame Paramahamsa Nithyananda. You ask specific questions about his birthday! Who do you think you are? What time were you born? Most of us don’t have a clue. It’s hard to get these records in America and in India, well Good Luck! Such minutia is just not important in India, hence the cultural difference. How Indians perceive things are different.
I’m at the Bidadi Ashram right now for the LBE program. It costs $8000 for three months. My rent at home in the US, for one month, is $2,000+bills+food= around $3,000. So for three months I pay at least $12,000. Uh lets see, $8,000 for three months in the presence of an enlightened master learning yoga, mediation, rituals, chanting etc. and much more vs. $12,000 and none of these things. Clearly this is a no brainier. As far as the living quarters are concerned, they are top notch for Indian standards on the Ashram. However, four and five star resorts are made available for anyone who wants to reside there. Most us of choose to stay on the Ashram. The volunteers and ashramites are so kind and courteous. And yes they do work hard and there is a lot of work to do. As to your claims of sleep deprivation: News flash!: Humans don’t require 8 hours of sleep.
You may have heard somewhere that 8 hours of sleep per night is necessary to be healthful. This just is not so. “In our studies in San Diego, the average adult is actually asleep only between 6 and 6.5 hours a night. Moreover, The Cancer Prevention Study II showed that people who sleep 6.5 to 7.5 hours live a bit longer than people who sleep 8 hours or more. The shorter sleepers lived longer! Even people who slept as little as 3.5 hours lived longer than those who slept 8 hours or more. Certainly, if you get only 6.5 or 7 hours of sleep a night, you are probably sleeping enough.
Studies show that in the range that most Americans sleep (which is 6, 7, or 8 hours or so), there are few discernable differences between people. This may surprise you, but people who sleep 6 hours seem to be at least as happy as people who sleep 8 hours. Moreover, people who sleep 8 hours get just as much work done and are just as rich as people who sleep 6 hours. There may be some tendency for people with the shortest sleep times (5 or 6 hours) to be outgoing and energetic, whereas people with the longest sleep times (9 or 10 hours) seem to be more introverted, imaginative, or perhaps a bit depressed. Notice the surprise! People who sleep less are less depressed!”http://www.brightenyourlife.info/ch8.html
I get an average of five hours asleep here. The first thing we do is Nithya Yoga in th morning and it unlocks the energy that my body requires for the day. And by the way if I need more energy the food here is healthy, abundant and fantastic. The bottom line is that when you are in the presence of an enlightened being his energy flows through you and you don’t require as much from external sources..
As to your accusations of rampant sex on the ashram. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Women and men room separately unless they are married. They are not even permitted to dance with each other. And when you are here, your thoughts on sexual fantasies decrease so people are not even thinking about such things. Nothing could be farther from the truth. This is NOT some hippie nudist paradise. It is a Vedic Hindu monastery.
My experience here is priceless and words cannot even describe the joy and bliss that I feel when I am with Paramahamsa Nithyananda. This is the truth from someone who is inside right now, not inside out.
