The roots of Santana Dharma in Russia can be traced back to the 18th century when the Russian Empire expanded towards the south and started to interact with Indian traders and travelers. During this time, the Russian elite showed a keen interest in Indian Vedas, religious texts written in Sanskrit, and started to learn about the religion.
One of the earliest known Russian scholars of Hinduism was Nikolay Ivanovich Ilminsky, who published several works on Hindu mythology and philosophy in the mid-19th century. He was also one of the first to introduce Indian philosophy to Russian intellectuals, laying the foundation for the spread of Santana Dharma in Russia.
Later, in the early 20th century, the Theosophical Society, a religious and philosophical organization founded in the United States, gained popularity in Russia. It promoted the study of Indian spiritual practices and beliefs, and helped to spread knowledge of Santana Dharma throughout the country. The Society played an important role in the development of Hinduism in Russia and influenced many Russian intellectuals and writers.
Today, Hinduism is a rapidly growing religion in Russia, with over 140 official Hindu organizations and more than 150 temples across the country. Many Russians have adopted Hindu practices, and it has become an important part of their daily lives.
In conclusion, the influence of Santana Dharma in Russia can be traced back over two centuries, and its growth continues to be visible in society today. It has a rich history of evolution in Russia and is becoming an increasingly significant religious and cultural force. Stay tuned for part two of this series for a deeper exploration into the influence of Santana Dharma on Russia.
I have written quite a few articles about the presence of Sanatana Dharma,in ancient times,in Russia.
I discussed about the precision of Vedic science, specifically the identification of the land of Staraya Maina and the exact latitude and longitude where the sun-god descends. The discovery of an idol confirms this site in Russia, which is connected to the ancient and holy land of the 722 flying vehicles mentioned in the Rig Veda ; the connection between Russian orthodox Christianity and Vishnu worship, and noted that the Russian language has roots in Sanskrit dating back 50,000 years to the Smritzyi archaeological site along the now-dried Vernstokhlin river system.
“The report says that the area in which the idol was found is called Staraya Maina. In the Rig Veda, there is a passage that goes, Itham ascati pasyat syantham, ekam starayath mainaa-kaalam. This translates into Staraya Maina is the name of the land of the 45 rivers (on whose banks the noble Rishis conducted the famous Horse Sacrifices), where the sun-god descends into one fifty-two forty-seven. While the first line identifies a site, the second line talks about the exact latitude and longitude at which the solar spectrum produces interference lines at one, fifty-two, and forty-seven. The extreme precision of the calculations show the advanced science of the Vedic period, and a thorough knowledge of SI units (it has been conclusively proven that French scientists stole the system from the Indians. The discovery of the idol confirms the site in Russia, identified in the Rig Veda as rus soviath sapthamahanagaratham (the ancient and holy land of the 722 flying vehicles). The ancient connections between the Russians and the Indians has been unequivocally confirmed. In Russian orthodox Christianity, worship is conducted very much like in Vishnu temples. The Russians refer to the feast of Vizhnyir Ekoratsya Vikhunh, directly corresponding with Vaikhunda Ekhadasi. The Russian language also owes a lot to Sanskrit, whose origins 50,000 years ago roughly correspond with the language of the people of the Smritzyi archaeological site, along the banks of the now-dried up Vernstokhlin (Varnasatyakhalini) river system.# Link for the source provided towards the end of the article.
‘You are probably referring to Slavic-Aryan Vedas. East Slavs were the main ancestors of the Russians.
Slavic-Aryan Vedas (Славяно-Арийские Веды) – purportedly ancient texts that allegedly were passed down generation to generation in Siberia. There were nine books, dictated by the Slavic god Perun to our forefathers in 38,004 BC (or about 40,009 years ago). To date, only the first book of the Vedas is translated into Russian and published – “Santii Vedas of Perun” (Book of Knowledge and Wisdom of Perun).
Sanskrit and Russian are two most strikingly similar languages of Indo-European language family. We know that during some period of history, the speakers of the two languages lived close together and many parallels can be drawn in culture and religion aspects. Resemblances are endless and historian opinions on who influenced whom are split.
