Bangalore: Addressing a press conference at the Bidadi Ashram on Monday, Mar 8, Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam authorities said that they can not positively confirm or deny that the man seen in the sex tape is Swami Nithyananda or not.
International co-ordinator and spokesperson, Swami Nitya Sachithananda, Sri Nitya Gnanananda Mahacharya, and Nitya Prananda informed that Nithyananda will be talking to his devotess once again through a website in a span of four or five days.
The mission authorities stuck to the contention that the sex scandal was created with ‘surgical precision’ by someone who wanted to defame the spiritual guru.
“We are contemplating legal action against those responsible for tarnishing the image of Swami Nithyananda and the ashram,” the spokesperson said.
He also dismissed various allegations levelled against Nithyananda and his ashram in the media in the wake of the sex scandal.
Apart from brushing aside reports of rape and sexual abuse, Sachithananda also dismissed land dispute between the ashram authorities and the Maran family and the alleged human right violations in the ashram.
On the mysterious death of a Canadian devotee in the ashram, he clarified that the decreased, identified as Melvin Boyd Diamond, had a history of health problem and that the ashram could produce the post mortem report to prove that there was no foul play involved.
