Nithya Bhaktananda Swami's Teachings

Well, I found this interesting caricature uploaded on Flickr on 14 Nov 2008 (not in March 2010), which reminded me of the monkey businesses of some Indian godmen caught recently in inglorious situations by the Indian police and media. It seems that the last one year was particularly bad for at least some of the fake gurus, especially because they have been the living gods of their devotees, have established huge imperial Ashrams worth several millions of dollars within a few years, and some of them just had humble huts to begin with in India, but soon they were establishing their branches and temples abroad, their favourite first destination being USA.

In fact most Indians come to know about them because of their US and NRI connections that flood the media and internet.

Here are some of the teachings of Sri Nithya Bhaktananda Swami (Gopal Seelam Reddy, a disciple of Nithyananda):

It cannot be taught
But it can be caught

Chewing the cud from the past
Chewing the cud of the future

Mind is a monkey
Body is a donkey

You guys have no past!
