paramahamsa nithyananda response to false news on samaya tv


Responding to the baseless and malicious allegations against Paramahamsa Nithyananda and Hotel Sarovar in Hardwar which were telecast on Kannada channel SAMAYA TV on 13th & 14th January, H.H. Paramahamsa Nithyananda and the General Manager of Hotel Sarovar both released official statements clarifying the facts today.


Paramahamsa Nithyananda is currently in Hardwar, conducting a 21-day yoga and meditation program ‘Inner Awakening’ at the well-known Hotel Sarovar. The abovementioned channel had falsely accused both the spiritual leader and the hotel of refusing accommodation to Kannadigas in the hotel on account of the program. The channel then went on to use this baseless statement to accuse Paramahamsa Nithyananda of ‘insulting Kannadigas’, and even went so far as to call a panel discussion to ask the Hon’ble CM of Karnataka, Sri K. Siddaramaiah, to exile the spiritual leader out of the state and close down his ashram.


Pained by these false and malicious accusations, Paramahamsa Nithyananda has responded with a statement, saying, ‘I wanted to make it very clear to the people of Karnataka – I love Karnataka and I love people of Karnataka. Neither me nor my representatives made any of these kind of statements. We don’t have any barriers based on religion, language, nothing. We’re open to all human beings. We’re open to everyone.’


The General Manager of Hotel Sarovar, Sri Brijesh Gupta, also expressed his shock at this false accusation by the channel, saying, ‘It is very disheartening to know the statement which is made by the said channel. Swamiji and his message are all-inclusive and welcoming and uniting everyone. I don’t know how the channel is showing this, but if they are showing this, it is a very wrong allegation to Swamiji. And if they want to come (to the hotel) and see whether anyone is stopping them, they can see! They can come and check if they have any doubt about it.’


The administrator of Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam ashram in Bidadi, Sri Sairam Muthuswamy, also presented a letter to the Hon’ble CM of Karnataka yesterday, clarifying the facts and appealing to the Hon’ble CM to take the necessary action to stop the harassment. 


The letter to the Hon’ble CM of Karnataka, as well as the statements made by Paramahamsa Nithyananda and Hotel Sarovar, are attached herewith.
