Mangaluru, Nov 22, 2017: It has come to our notice that some ‘disciples’ of Nityananda of Bidadi have been taking some children around allegedly blind folded and ‘demonstrating’ alleged super powers of body scanning and showing it by identifying objects with special powers. If the guru had such powers we wonder why he could not have used them to identify hidden cameras which were used to film his activities and later on these had hit headlines!
We would like to openly challenge Nityananda or any of his appointed representatives to an open challenge to use their super powers or whatever they may be to read the contents of a sealed envelope to the desired level of accuracy specified by us which will be recorded in writing and after that the seal would be opened and the contents examined by a panel of three judges.
If both tally within the levels of accuracy specified by us then we would agree that Nityananda and/or his disciples have superpowers to identify objects or scan bodies. We do hope that the media will co-operate with us to sponsor such an event so that the truth would come out as to whether it is possible for anyone to ahve such superpowers.
This challenge will be held at Mangalore at a mutually agreed date and time in the presence of the media at a public place. These are the broad guidelines. The exact conditions will be specified and an agreement will be signed before the trial takes place.
