Melbourne: The handmaiden to a guru of Mangrove Mountain Ashram, Australia, has revealed that he raped her with gun and even forced her to drink his urine as a form of contraception.
The woman known as Shishy has told the child sex abuse royal commission today that her lover, Swami Akhandananda Saraswati sliced at her vagina and cut moles out with a penknife but refused her medical treatment, telegraph.com.au reported.
Shishy said that when she could not take the contraceptive pill or use an IUD, she used a "traditional" yoga method of drinking her lover`s urine, but she became pregnant twice and both times had abortions, the second one self-administered using herbs and a hot bath.
The 57-year-old woman, who was 16 when she met the swami, said that she also had sex with the founder of the Indian-based movement, Guru Swami Satyandanda Saraswati, and also drank his urine as a contraceptive.
The commission began its hearing after several allegations and reports of child sex abuse between 1974 and 2014 were made against Satyananda Yoga Ashram at Mangrove Mountain.
