Are Swami Nithyananda’s interrogators mesmerized?

The investigators interrogating Swami Nithyananda are seemingly mesmerized by the godman, because either they complete a session of interrogation under CCTV and record the entire proceedings only to find that it does not have any sound, but only pictures like the movies of the silent era.

There was even a report saying that one of the sleuths who went to arrest the Swami from Himachal Pradesh was cured of some mysterious ailments by the Swami.

Then there were reports that the swami uses delaying tactics and it is very difficult to make him speak. He frequently goes on a trance or is meditating so that the sleuths could make hardly any significant headway in the interrogation process. On this ground, they have to get his custody extended till May 12, 2010.

Yet another report that sounded funny is that they are searching for one Nithya Gopika, who has been the Swami’s ‘intimate friend’ and used to travel with the swami on his foreign trips, and take care of his personal belongings. Reports say the interrogators are unable to fix the identity of her, or locate her.

Quite funny! The name Nithya Gopika is possibly the same woman who is known as Ma Nithyananda Gopika. If it is so, she was initiated into Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam or his other organizations along with Nithyananda’s associate Gopal Sheelum Reddy alias Sri Nithya Bhaktananda, who is already under custody of the police. The interrogators can easily find out her details from Nithya Bhaktananda, who is already in their custody. Also, I remember to have seen some other names on the list below in some reports on the case.

As per some unconfirmed reports her husband Sri Nithya Sevakananda (Raj) was also an Ashramite and they are now back in the US. Here is a list of people who were ‘blessed’ by the swami on May 11, 2006.

Avisit to Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam’s website will give the following info:

“Swamiji commences the fourth Acharya training in the US at picturesque Camp Buckhorn near Los Angeles, CA… May 11 - Swamiji blesses Los Angeles Ashramites with new spiritual names. The ashramites who received new names are -

Sri Nithya Bhaktananda (Gopal [Sri Anand Roop])

Ma Nithya Dayananda Mayi (Jyothi [Ma Nithya Roop])

Sri Nithya Medhananda (Krishna [Sri Nithya Omkaar])

Ma Nithya Medhananda Mayi (Kavita [Ma Ananda Maatrusri])

Sri Nithya Sevakananda (Raj [Sri Nithya Shaaleen])

Ma Nithyananda Gopika (Vidya [Ma Ananda Satyaprakashini])

Ma Nithya Shaantananda (Suman [Ma Nithya Premanjali]

sri Nithya Sahajananda (Sreraman [Sri Nithya Saadhak])

Sri Nithya Vimalananda (Vinay [Sri Nithya Satyajyothi])”.

Interestingly, there are a number of photos on the page of the ceremony, which may have the photos of the above persons (I do not recognize them). It may be noted that the photos may be removed or the entire page may be removed, because many pages of the websites related to/owned by Swami Nityananda are being either re-done or deleted, or the entire websites made uninformative or surrendered as in the case of his Los Angeles Vedic temple and the Singapore and Malaysia Ashrams, the sites of which was simply not renewed and now being offered for sale.

Go for the photo of Ma Nithyananda Gopika at The other persons in the photo are, the description above the last photo says, “Swamiji is seen along with Swamis and Swaminis of the Nithyananda Order of Los Angeles. Seated from left to right are Ma Nithya Sachitananda, Ma Nithyananda Gopika, Ma Nithya Dayananda Mayi, Ma Nithya Mitraananda. Kneeling from left to right are Sri Nithya Sachitananda, Sri Nithya Sahajananda, Sri Nithya Bhaktananda, Swamiji, Ma Nithya Medhananda Mayi and Sri Nithya Sevakananda”.
