In the continuing streak of legal and moral victories for Hinduism, Paramahamsa Nithyananda regained grandly his rights to the 4 ancient traditional mutts that he was appointed as the mathadhipati (spiritual and legal head) of by the previous pontiff Sri Nithya Atmananda Swami:
1. Sri Somanatha Swami Temple & Aadheenam , Thiruvarur
2. Sri Arunachala Gnandesikar Swami Temple & Mutt, Vedaranyam
3. Sri Po.Ka.Sathukal Mutt, Vedaranyam
4. Sri Palsamy Mutt, Thanjavur
5. Sri Sankara Swami Mutt, Thanjavur
The Hon’ble High Court of Madras dismissed the petition initiated against Paramahamsa Nithyananda that wanted to prohibit him or his representatives from reviving or even performing puja in the four major ancient Mutts in South India. The age old Mutts in contention were from the districts of Tanjavur, Nagapattinam and Thirvarur. The Hon’ble Court thereby upheld the interim injuction granted in this regard by the Court at Nagapattinam giving the full rights to these Mutts to Paramahamsa Nithyananda.
The verdict also goes a long way in supporting Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s vision of restoring many of the ancient mutts which are in dire straits and rescuing them from the clutches of vested interests such as people who have gotten very cheap long term leases or occupied the premises belonging to these mutts illegally. Many times as we have seen these vested interests collude with some local leaders and goondas and prevent the temple properties from being used for the rightful use. They even use physical force and death threats to evict our Sanyasis. Inspite of this blatant religious persecution in India where the majority religion is supposedly Hinduism, the sannyasis of the Nithyananda order bravely fought the war for living Hinduism and triumphantly won the war, in the face of all odds including attempts to murder them, molest the women sannyasis, physical assault and such heinous crimes.
Attached are the documents (Niyamanpatrams) appointing Swami Nithyananda as the Madadhipati (head) of the 4 Mutts:
