Nithyananda gets Paramacharya Swamigal title, gives Madurai Aadheenam one crore rupees – Media Reports

Nithy crowned

Ramanagara, Bidadi, Karnataka, April 27: Self-styled godman Nityananda, who is facing criminal cases, was declared 293rd pontiff of “Madurai Aadheenam”, an ancient Hindu religious organisation, at Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam in Bidadi in the district.

He was declared the 293rd pontiff by Arunagirinatha Sri Gnanasambanda Desika Paramacharya Swamigal, the 292nd pontiff of the Aadheenam.

“We hereby coronate him with the title His Holiness the 293rd Guru Maha Sannidhanam Srilasri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Sri Gnanasambanda Desika Paramacharya Swamigal”, he told reporters.

He also declared Nithyananda as his lawful success for to deal with all movable and immovable properties of the Adheenam, which includes over 1250 acres of land, several temples and properties in India and abroad.

The Madurai Aadheenam has existed since time immemorial. However, it was revived around 1500 years ago by Tirujnana Sambandar, one of the four visionary saints of South Indian Shaiva Siddhanta philosophy.

The Aadheenam’s history dates to the Tamil Sangam period. The presiding deities of Madurai are Shiva and Devi in their incarnations as Chokkanathar and Meenakshi, enshrined in the famous Madurai Meenakshi-Sundareshwara temple.

Nithyananda vowed to fulfil all responsibilities of the Aadheenam, revive the Shaiva tradition and also make the Aadheenam an international religious organisation.

Nityananda had landed in controversy after a video footage showing him in a compromising position with an actress was telecast by local TV channels in March 2010.

He was arrested on April 21, 2010 from Solan in Himachal Pradesh. He was granted bail on June 11, 2010 by Karnataka High Court. – OneIndia, 27 April 2012

Nithyananda to head world’s most ancient Hindu organization

Los Angeles, CA, April 27, 2012: At the press meet [at Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam in Bidadi, Karnataka], which was marked by a mood of celebration, the current pontiff read out the affidavit declaring that “We hereby declare, nominate, enthrone, coronate and appoint Paramahamsa Nithyananda as 293rd Guru Maha Sannidhanam of Madurai Aadheenam, also called as Tirugnanasambanda Swamigal Adheenam. We hereby coronate with the title His Holiness the 293rd Guru Maha Sannidhanam Srila Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Sri Gnanasambanda Desika Paramacharya Swamigal”.

The current pontiff declared His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda as “my lawful successor, descendant and inheritor of Madurai Adheenam, Tirugnanasambanda Swamigal Adheenam, having all the powers, duties, obligations, ritual and customary rights that is being performed, enjoyed, vested in the Madurai Aadheenam.” He also declared His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda as “my lawful successor to deal with all the movable and immovable properties of the Tirugnanasambanda Swamigal Adheenam”, including over 1250 acres of land, several temples and properties owned by the Aadheenam in India and abroad.

The legendary Madurai Aadheenam has existed since time immemorial. However, it was revived around 1500 years ago by the young enlightened incarnation Tirujnana Sambandar, one of the four visionary saints of South Indian Shaiva Siddhanta philosophy. The Aadheenam is established in Madurai, one of the oldest cities of India with a history dating all the way back to Tamil Sangam period. The presiding deities of Madurai are Shiva and Devi in their incarnations as Chokkanathar and Meenakshi, enshrined in the world-famous Madurai Meenakshi-Sundareshwara temple.

According to the rules and regulations of the Madurai Aadheenam, only hereditary Saiva Vellalars (the caste community to which His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda belongs) are selected as the pontiffs of this ancient and premier religious institution.

The pontiff of the Madurai Aadheenam is known by the title ‘Guru Maha Sannidhanam’ and inherits great responsibility in carrying forward the traditions of Tirujnana Sambandar’s sacred work. The spiritual services offered by Madurai Aadheenam are well-known throughout India.

According to Shaiva Siddhanta philosophy, everything is preordained according to the judgment of Lord Shiva. Referring to His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda as ‘a noble gift of Lord Shiva’ and ‘the avatar of saint Tirujnana Sambandhar’, the current pontiff declared His Holiness Nithyananda as the ambassador to the Almighty, appointed by the eternal Government of Lord Shiva.

There is no tenure for this position and it is a lifetime honor.

Accepting the sacred honor, His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda said, “With all humbleness for divine grace I hereby declare that I accept the responsibility given to me as the 293rd Guru Maha Sannidhanam of Madurai Aadheenam. I vow, keeping Chokkanathar and Meenakshi and Jnanasambandhar as witness, we will fulfill all the responsibilities of Madurai Aadheenam, making the Shaiva tradition revived and celebrated all over the world. I also commit to Madurai Aadheenam Guru Maha Sannidhanam, that we will make Madurai Aadheenam as an international religious organization.”

His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda made an offering of 1 crore (10 million) Indian Rupees towards Madurai Aadheenam’s spiritual activities. He also announced the upcoming kumbhabhishekam of the Madurai Meenakshi temple and inaugurated the daily annadaanam (which is the traditional service of free satvic meals for all visitors) at Madurai Aadheenam, starting today. – San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles, 27 April 2012

  1. This arrogant stupid man’s statement.

    All the 13 mutt heads should unite in Madurai hold rallies all over Madurai to stop this nonsense. The present Madurai Adheenam was bribed.with retirement benefits. What is the TN media doing now? Eating peanuts and halwa.

    http://expressbuzz.com/states/tamilnadu/%E2%80%98my-followers-will-meet-mutt-heads-in-court%E2%80%99/387947.html

  2. who gave this rights to madurai Aadheenam…totally I upset what’s going on in madurai mutt. nidhtyanada should be punished by peoples from all religions.

  3. This is soooo Sad news… Such F….. Nidthyananda to become madurai Aadheenam. Its not fair for our religion. Everybody knows he is a culprit, Prostitute, Stripper, F….. etc etc. where is the ramasena protesters. sooo please all of us protest against the f….. nidhyananda ……..

  4. This is another reason why am no longer wearing the cloth of the Sadhvi. Have i given up being a celibate? NO. But am appalled at the lack of discernment when it comes to these blights against the traditions. All good hindus would do well to boycott this mutt in protest.

    Let there not be one more foot step over the threshold of this temple until this is righted. Mutts have become very political and corruption is rampant.

    • The sentiment is appreciated.

      This sadhu also has considered leaving the gerua cloth and putting on white instead. The gerua cloth has no value any longer in modern Indian society. It has become the dress of conmen and scoundrels. And Xian missionaries who dress up as sadhus in order to catch gullible Hindu converts.

      But this problem of criminals impersonating sadhus has always been there. There are stories in the Puranas. The thief or dacoit puts on coloured gerua cloth in order to avoid capture. Sometimes there is even a change of heart and he becomes a saint.

  5. Your comment has been moved to https://bharatabharati.wordpress.com/2012/04/22/open-letter-to-john-dayal-francois-gautier/#comment-7925 which may be a better place for it. When I have time, I will look at Koenraad’s blog and repost something.

  6. 1. Let us hope the media will investigate the political and monetary compulsions behind this.
    2. Nithy put a crown to the old man and he put one on Nithy’s head. All that gold belongs to people, who gave it to Nithy once upon a time.
    3. We are Ok, if he takes money and lands. But this SOB should not be allowed to use Meenakshi temple, which belongs to all people, as a platform for his false propaganda of self-styled God.

  7. There is more to this on-going scandal than meets the eye.

    Allegedly Ashok Singhal, VHP international president, is behind the arrangement to get Sex Swami Nithyananda upgraded to a Shaiva acharya. He made an appeal to US Hindu NRIs to take Nithy back into their hearts and pocketbooks.

    The RSS also agreed to support the rehabilitation of Nithy, allegedly.

    The Hindu Samaj should hang its head in shame at this parody of Hindu spirituality.

    The Hindu Samaj should consider abandoning the Sangh Parivar completely. Like the BJP, it has done nothing for Hindus in India. The rehabilitation of Nithy does not serve the interests of Dharma.
