Agama Yoga Founder Swami Vivekananda accused of sexual assault



The founder of the Thailand Koh Phangan based yoga and tantra school Agama, Swami Vivekananda Saraswati, has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. He claims to be the “brilliant exponent of a unique and modern trend of thinking in Yoga” who “has reached high states of spiritual realization.”

Agama Yoga is one of the world’s largest yoga training centers. Swami’s teacher is the infamous Romanian yoga guru Gregorian Bivolaru. He was sentenced to six years in prison for having sex with an underage girl.

Swami warns those who dare to speak against him that they are under “demonic influence” and face “infernal consequences for many lives to come.” Several of his most senior teachers have also been accused of rape or sexual assault. Former staff have stated Swami says he is paying off the Thai authorities.

A Pattern of Abuse

When Agama student Kelly Anne (not her real name) met with Swami for her first spiritual consultation she says he sexually assaulted her. She told me that she sought advice from him on anxiety and other issues. His advice was three men a day she said. When she tried to leave he threw himself on her, “Then I got up to go away and he started kissing full on tongue. It was very aggressive. And then he started groping my bum. I was literally dizzy.” This was her very first consultation with Swami.

Kelly Anne did eventually end up being sexual with Swami at one point. However, on one occasion she messaged him before she arrived for a meeting and said, “I don’t want to have sex. I don’t know what I want to talk about.” She made it clear what her intentions were, expecting he would listen. Yet, when she arrived Swami immediately threw himself on her:

“When he opened the front door he instantly stuck his tongue in my mouth and started kissing me. I closed my mouth and started moving my head away. He then proceeded to feel my ass and tried to get his hands inside my shorts to finger me. I pushed his arm away, in a downward movement, with my fist clenched. To this day I don’t know why I didn’t slap him and walk out of the house.

Instead we sat on the sofa and he continued to try and get in my shorts. I remember moving positions several times, to try to get his hands away from that area. In the end, he succeeded and I was lying on the sofa, he had his fingers inside of me. It wasn’t like he was trying to pleasure me, he just had his fingers inside me and continued to chat to me about general things.”

Kelly Anne describes another incident, “I had come over for a yoni massage. Instantly after I got there he was trying to fuck me. Then he went down on me and started to stick it in.” A yoni massage is a sacred healing massage that involves therapeutically touching a woman’s genitals. She said she felt sexually violated.

    Why this idiotic fake guru is spoiling the name of the great Hindu Rishi Swami Vivekananda, also this culprit is misusing the Hindu, Buddhist traditions for money.

    This has been going on for years at Agama…his latest scam was to have one or two escorts and hookers act as students at Agama, seduce both male and female students and charge them per hour. Some of us who work there know that current student Emilia Lenda is a escort in Canada, goes by name of Sage Palmer, see her website sagepalmer.com

    I was suspicious of Emilia, Swami and some of the instructors took a special interest in her. I bet she never even paid for the courses, just slept with him.

    Does not surprise me that Swami had prostitutes among the students…he was all about the money at his core, just look at the house he was building. And I can confirm that he took a special interest in women like Emilia aka Sage Palmer as students. She was been sleeping with him and also getting students and others on the island to sleep with her for bhat, which he got a percentage. I looked at her website meetsagepalmer.com, it’s definitely her.

    I looked at website meetsagepalmer.com, that is definitely Emilia Lenda…Swami always showed a special interest in her. So what’s a sexual escort doing at Agama except helping Swami make more money by getting guests to pay for sex with her?
    Does anyone know if she is still at Agama?
