The Swami was allegedly filmed in a room with a woman in Tamil Nadu. People attacked the ashram - even as his followers claimed the video was a defamatory conspiracy.

"For us it is a very, very astonishing matter that the Swami has been indulging in these sex and crime activities. He should be punished and this ashram should be shut down permanently," a protester had said on March 3.
