Almost ten days after the video showing the godman in a compromising position with the actress hit the media, Nithyananda for the first time made a direct reference to it on Friday, Mar 12 in his third online appearance.
Making a shocking statement, the Swamiji said that he was only 'experimenting' and promised that in the future he would refrain from experimenting with anything that was unacceptable to the society.
He said that he has also learnt a lot from the controversy.
“In 33 years of my life, I have seen two extremes. From being the most watched guru on YouTube to the most watched scandal on YouTube.
"In a way, even this abuse, defamation and attack have taught me lot of lessons about society, life and humanity, which I had never thought of and never looked into. This has made me more responsible. Now I have decided that I am not going to experiment anything which is not widely accepted by the society," he told Malhotra, a Princeton-based researcher.
This is Nithyananda's third appearance online. While the videos of the his two interviews with Malhotra are available online on Youtube, the video of spiritual guru's first appearance after the sex scandal came out in the open was posted on his Dhyanapeetam mission webiste.
