Nithyananda's Statues of Crime; An Image of Osho
Paramahamsa Nithyananda, isn’t it true that you ordered a custom built statue of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (Osho) from a carver near Mahabalipuram (in Tamil Nadu) and claimed that you chiseled this by your own bare hands in a cave for the nine months as your first act of obtaining 'enlightenment'? That statement alone is very interesting. The first thing you claim to do after being 'enlightened' is to carve a granite statue of the controversial spiritual ‘leader’, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (Osho). Wow, I knew you would make good use of your 'enlightenment'. We were afraid you were going to blow it all on ice cream or something.
Sri Nithyananda, can you please tell us where this holy cave is located? Are there any eyewitness villager names? You said that someone would bring you food every day, so there must be someone whose name you can give us to testify that all of these stories about lonely you being in a cave for nine months are all true. We really want to believe you and these stories. Honest.
Sri Nithyananda, that statue must have been very heavy. After being chiseled, a man can barely carry it. Why you must have actually done some heavy lifting for a change.
You, Sri Nithyananda, being a renunciate can we please ask how you obtained a piece of granite that must have weighed around 100 KG? And, where did you get the tools to chisel this? Did you purchase them... with money? But, I thought you said you renounced handling money? Oh, wait, did you teleport these things? That must have been it. But, didn't you, Sri Nithyananda, say that if you teleport something that doesn't belong to you, then that's stealing? And you only had a begging bowl and the clothes on your back, and perhaps a few chisels and a mallet? But nothing more than that. So, how did you score all of this swag? Maybe this is the new 'mystery of mysteries'. Please de-mystify this for us.
And, how did you, Sri Nithyananda, carry this Osho statue with you after you moved out of the cave? Did you rent a U-Haul Truck? And, where did you store this big heavy statue? We didn't see any pictures of it in your humble first ashram at Erode on the Kaveri River. In fact, we never saw it at the Bidadi Ashram even during the beginning years. Did you, Nithyananda, leave this Osho statue at your parents' house?
Sri Nithyananda, did you have this Osho statue shipped out to your new Vedic Temple in Montclair, (Los Angeles) California in 2007 where you had it on display next to Lord Buddha and the 24 Jain enlightened ascetics called tirthankaras? Yes, that is true. Many saw it there. And, Sri Nithyananda, didn't you have a lot of granite statues just made in short order especially for this Vedic Temple? Why I bet you were negotiating with lots of carvers in order to make all of those statues in such a short time and then still be able to ship them out to your Vedic Temple in Montclair, California before the grand opening.
And, is it true, Nithyananda, that you gave this statue of Osho as your precise gift ‘enlightenment’ to a humble donor, Mr. Popat and Mrs. Kalpana Jain who are true devotees of Osho and donated over two million dollars to pay for your Vedic Temple in Los Angeles? Why, Sri Nithyananda, is this not cheating if it wasn't really you who carved that Osho statue?
Nithyananda, can you answer the questions to how you ordered this Osho statue, the location, time, and date of year? We know that you will not answer these questions. But do not fret. We have obtained the contact information of the statue carver in Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu who actually made that Osho statue. I'm sure you ordered this Osho statue from this carver as a 'backup' on top of the one you made, just to make sure that your carving was better. Right?
