The ‘Dasajis' (followers) of Sri Kalki Bhagawan never consumed any narcotic or other material, according to an affidavit filed by an administrator of a ‘oneness campus' in the Madras High Court.

Earlier, while granting an interim injunction restraining nearly 30 private television channels of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu from telecasting clips pertaining to Sri Kalki Bhagawan, the court had directed N.K.V. Krishna, son of the godman, and a competent person from the ashram to file separate affidavits “highlighting, explaining, expounding and clarifying the scenes found in the video clips.”

E. Lokeswara, administrator of the ‘oneness campus' at Varadayapalem (Andhra Pradesh) in his affidavit, stated that Sri Amma Bhagawan are the founders of the Oneness Movement. The couple had dedicated their lives to spiritual emancipation of mankind and uplifting the divinity of society. They visited the campuses and guided the Dasajis.

He said there were defamatory programmes telecast by various networks. The affidavit said Mr. Krishna was in no way connected with the spiritual activities of the movement. The video telecast that had been recorded and transmitted pertained to 2003. The Dasajis never consumed narcotics or other material. These clips were stolen by some persons and transmitted without even verifying its veracity from the organisation.

The Dasajis reached various conscious levels, forgot their physical presence and danced in bliss while listening to devotional songs. They combined Ayurvedic cleansing with rigorous fasting and ‘Diksha.' It was a unique experience, which was being misrepresented by the clips shown on television channels. Justice G. Rajasuria posted the matter after summer vacation.
