Alesya Kurnosova:

One of the top fighters with totalitarian sects in Russia, a professor of Orthodox St. Tikhon Humanitarian University, Aleksandr Dvorkin came to Tomsk. Today he met with representatives of the media.

Ales Kurnosova, reporter: "Experts estimate that today in the Tomsk region there are more than 50 different religious organizations. They are often masked by rehabilitation centers and centers of psychological support. The publish information about themselves and put in on the internet. Particular attention is drawn to one of the version of the epic "Bhagavad Gita"

Alexander Dvorkin, a professor of the Orthodox St. Tikhon Humanitarian University: "I arrived in Tomsk because here there is a process initiated by the Prosecutor of the Tomsk region in recognition of the book" Bhagavad Gita As it is, " extrimist literature, because it contains explicit incitement to inter-regional strife and degrading treatment of women, other ethnic groups. "Krishna Consciousness" - is not the only sect that functions in the Tomsk region. It is interesting, that the prosecutors are examining this book for the first time now. It should be emphasized that this book is not directly related to the ancient Indian epic -the "Bhagavad Gita". This is a semi-literate (incompetent, unqualified)  retelling of the book, a double translation from Sanskrit to English and from English into Russian. There are comments by Prabhupada, the founder of the sect,  and we blame these very comments »

  • Omg this is just ridiculous, Bhagvada Gita teaches us to love God and everyone else. I dont know what they are finding offensive or extreme! Please let us know Mataji how we can help.

    Hare Krishna

    • They  say Srila Prabhupada's translation is not bona fide. They say ISKCON is just a harmful sect and is not related to the real bhakti process. So I think that people all over the world, and especially Indians, and especially scholars can claim in the Media and on the internet that Bhagavad Gita As it Is is bona fide, that Srila Prabhupada's translation is very good and true and accurate, and that in his comments he only says what is said in the Bhagavad Gita and no concoction. The whole world should know that!

      • but how mata ji we can help in spreading this message?
