Paramhamsa Nityananda, the popular Indian Swami who faced protests after a local television played a video that appeared to show him in bed with two women, has announced he’s resigning as head of a religion organization.

“I have decided to live a life of spiritual seclusion, for some indefinite time…,” he said in a statement on his website.

The 32-year-old Swami had been under siege due to the sexually suggestive tapes earlier this month. The Nithyananda Mission ashram released a statement calling the video “a mix of conspiracy, graphics and rumours”, but followers attacked the building.

A Hindu holy man, Swami Nityananda was reported to have over 2 million followers and has over 11 ashrams in India and 26 in different countries around the world.  click for full article.
