Nithyananda, is it true that you took a course on Transcendental Mediation (TM) when you were a young lad in Thiruvannamalai? Nithyananda answers, “Yes, it is true. It is in my book, ‘The Formless in Form. I was still known as Rajasekaran.” And, your parents took little Rajasekaran, a.k.a. Paramahamsa Nithyananda, there because you were a very, very naughty boy who deserved to be spanked, and your parents wanted to cool down your angry and out-of-control behavior?
Nithyananda looks lost and says, “No response.” Yes, Nithyananda, we tend to just remember the good things, especially when we are trying to convince others that we are holy people from the very beginning. But, that’s OK, Nithyananda. You were still in development then.
Note: Any of Nithyananda's classmates from Thiruvannamalai who remember Nithyananda as a boy growing up in Thiruvannamalai are welcome to comment about little Nithyananda, then named Rajasekaran, and about his naughtiness in Thiruvannamalai. This might help balance the unconfirmed stories that Paramahamsa Nithyananda tells about himself as Rajasekaran and his boyhood in Thiruvannamalai.
