Abuse Sexual Physical Against Mata Amritanandamayi

One takes twenty years in an Ashram to find that there are repeated sexual assaults and physical violence against one !

That’s what an Australian says about Ma Amritanandamayi, Kerala, who is hailed as the ‘Hugging Guru’

 Holy Hell, A Memoir of Faith, Devotion and Pure Madness, by Gail Tredwel
Holy Hell, A Memoir of Faith, Devotion and Pure Madness,
As in the case of the Hindu by  Wendy Doniger,where she was interviewed in the print Media, there was an interview with the author by a TV Channel .Nobody seems to verify the fats or listen to the other side of the story!

Long Live Secularism!


In the recently published Holy Hell, A Memoir of Faith, Devotion and Pure Madness, Gail Tredwell alias Gayatri describes how she was sexually abused at the ashram, where, according to her, senior inmates had physical relations.


Ashram representative Sudeep Kumar confirmed that Gayatri had been with Amritanandamayi for two decades before quitting the ashram in 1999. However, Kumar said the contents of her book were absolutely baseless. “The allegations were surprising and defy common logic,’’ he said.


Tredwell, an Australian national, joined as a personal attendant to “the hugging saint’’ in 1978 at the age of 19, and witnessed how the young woman from a fishing village in Kerala grew into a towering spiritual leader, with followers across the world, and whose trusts now run a network of institutions in health and education sectors.
Tredwell said she wanted to know God and by working as Amma’s personal attendant, she thought she could achieve that goal. During her early days at the ashram, Tredwell said she was blessed with unforgettable spiritual experiences.


She alleged that in order to keep up her facade of innocence and purity, Amritanandamayi had a small team of trusted individuals doing her dirty work, and she (Tredwell) was one of them. “I was indeed uniquely privileged to witness Amma’s human side and her array of emotions — pretty standard ones, most of them, for non-gurus — that were highly contradictory to what she taught and displayed in public,’’ she wrote.


Tredwell alleged that one of the ashram colleagues had sexually exploited her and such repeated abuse eroded her faith. Her memoir contains details of alleged promiscuity among ashram members.”‘

The Chief Minister of Kerala has backed up the Mother.

  1. Very true.I have said to this effect at the beginning of this post.
    Please note the rating of this post, marked as one * indicating very poor.
    I have been watching some one doing this in my Controversial, meaning what some people believe to be pro Hindu post.
    Well this reinforces my belief secularism!’


  2. EWhat she was doing for many yearsRape should have been reported ASAP/ Was she abducted. Why it took that many years. You probably do not know how Indian saits are fabricated and mauled by christian missionary. This does not ,mean much. Has it been a Male Ma Anandmayi, she would be taken to jail like asharam. While many allegations against political leaders are free , many saints are in jail for allegation. Where is proof?
