Spiritual guru in sex video scandal

A SEX video involving Swami Nithyananda, one of India's most popular spiritual gurus, and a Tamil actress, is creating shockwaves in India and elsewhere in the world, including Malaysia, where he has a huge following.

The 32-year old guru, who is also known as Paramahamsa Nithyananda, was caught with his dhoti down in the video which has been aired by Tamil Nadu's Sun TV and Andhra Pradesh's TV9.

The face of the actress was blurred in the video and she has not been identified although some blogs have named her as "R*****a", a starlet who is related to a Tamil screen queen of the 70s.

Sun TV did not reveal the location of the room in the video but it is believed that the guru was caught in a sting operation that took place in a hotel or his ashram.

There has been no official response from Nithyananda but his ashram located at Adi Annamalai near Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu has been a hive of security activity.

Locals said that the guru visited the ashram two months ago to celebrate his birthday there. Police are looking into the matter.

The actress believed to be in the video.

Nithyananda has a big following in India, and in many countries around the world, including Malaysia and the US.

In 2007, he was elected chairman of the Hindu University of America, also known as the International Vedic Hindu University, an institution in the US state of Florida.
