Paramahamsa Nithyananda, who has recently taken the responsibilities of the spiritual head of Madurai Adheenam, interacts with media, takes questions from critics and explains his future plans as head of the world’s oldest living Hindu organization.

Talking to media-persons at Madurai Aadheenam, Paramahamsa Nithyananda shared his plans for the 1500-year-old socio-spiritual organization. He said that within a week, a free medical camp would be organized, with more than 20 doctors volunteering their services. Nithyananda also reminded the press that currently more than 2000 persons were being provided free food everyday, thanks to the annadaanam program of the Adheenam.

Later Nithyananda answered questions from the media on various issues surrounding his appointment as the 293rd pontiff of Madurai Adheenam and some controversies surrounding the same.

Nithyananda reiterated that the ‘Madurai Adheenam Protection Force’ (a conglomerate of 40 support groups) would pursue all possible legal forms of protest to counter the protests planned by a few individuals who called themselves the ‘Madurai Adheenam Retrieval Committee’. He made it clear that all actions by the Madurai Adheenam Protection Force would be peaceful and in self defense only. He also pointed out that the most recent protests staged by the self-styled Madurai Adheenam Retrieval Committee against his coronation ended in a whimper, where out of the declared 2000 protesters, only a couple of hundred actually turned up, most of whom were hired hands who left without taking part in any form of protest.

Presenting the letter of support from organizations working for the welfare of the blind in Madurai, Nithyananda promised to continue his efforts to ameliorate the conditions of the weak and disadvantaged members of the society. With regard to the four temples in Thanjavur District, India, that are currently being maintained by Madurai Aadheenam, Nithyananda made it clear that the revenue from these temples would be used exclusively for various development activities in the villages where they are located.
