Russia is close to Indian thoughts.
I have written on the fact that the Rig Veda was composed in Russia, under the guidance of Lord Shiva, by Vasishta.
Lake Baikal is the Vaikanasa Theertha.
Russia was called Sthree Varsha, ruled by women.

There is more!
There is The Book of Veles considered to be the Russian Vedas.
There is a view that this document is a forgery.
But the other evidences are overwhelming.
There is a refernce of Seven Rivers.
‘Zhetysu (Kazakh: Жетісу, pronounced [ʒi̯ɘtɘsʊw] meaning “seven rivers”; also transcribed Zhetisu, Jetisuw, Jetysu, Jeti-su, Jity-su,Жетысу, Джетысу, etc.) is a historical name of a part of Central Asia, corresponding to the South-Eastern part of modern Kazakhstan. It owes its name, meaning “seven rivers” (literally “seven waters”) in Kazakh, to the rivers which flow from the south-east into Lake Balkhash.’
Baikal as I mentioned is the Vaikhanasa Theertha.
The Seven Sacred Rivers f the Hindus are,
Gange ca Yamuneschaiva Godavari Sarasvati,
Narmadhe Sindhu Kaveri Jalesmin Sannidhim Kuru.
And indeed the ancient faith of the Slavs and the Rus from ancient times, long before the Baptism of Russia, was called Orthodoxy. Russian called themselves Orthodox, for the glory of rules to follow the Path of rules. She also was named Righteous faith, for the Slavs but know the truth, know the primordial Vedas, the ancient Vedas, the sacred legends about the origins of the Vedic faith, the former first faith almost all nations of the world.
The books from the collection of “Russian Veda” and, above all, in the “Book of Veles,” says twenty thousand years, during which time was born, died and revived Russia. The books tell of ancient ancestral home, the land where generations born Russian, the progenitors of various kinds…
Today, one looks healthy forces of society uniting Russian idea of the experience of generations of Russian national tradition is thought to be the only possible way for his country. Mental health of a nation can find, just leaning against the net source of national spirit, a prisoner in the great Russian language, songs and epics, in the tradition of old, stored in. Is it possible to grow up to the sky, with no roots?
What exactly are the Slavic tradition now?
Vedism or pravedizm — is the oldest monotheistic faith, that is, the belief in the existence of God, spiritual knowledge, handed down to us in the sacred texts, in the form of folk Orthodox tradition in the form of oral tradition.
If we turn to the original meaning of the word FAITH, contained in the ancient runic texts, we get the following interpretation:
FAITH — modern sounding ancient image of a two runes:
1. Runa “Veda” — means the Veda of reference, ie the ability to come to know the Divine Wisdom of God, and having become slaves of the Most High, to tell it to others.
2. Fleece “RA” — means the Sun, Light or Light of Truth of God.
So then faith — is Shining the Light of Wisdom and Truth of God.
Today, on the revitalization of the old faith and the work of many, many of our fellow citizens.
Now the rules get in the path of many. In Russia today, there are already hundreds of Vedic communities, reviving the ancient faith, ancient knowledge, rituals and martial arts.
So who is now among those who direct their efforts to revive the ancient Vedic culture and Vedic Knowledge? Even today, these people, united in various community quite a lot. And every day in Russia, they are becoming more and more.
You can just give some notation these directions:
Orthodoxy — the glorification of “rules” — the spiritual world of God and His children Grandparent — light Slavic Gods and Goddesses.
Rodnoverie — belonging to the Faith and the genus in all its forms: from the Almighty, in the images of Rod-Grandparent and Virgin, to the earthly father and mother. This contains the notion that this belief — native, not foreign.
Vaishnava — Vaishnava worship, praise and spiritual flock to God in the image of Vishnu (elevated) and Krishna (Kryshen).
RUSVEDIZM — anastasiytsev movement, followers of Anastasia was, a book Megre ancient Vedic roots of Slavic civilization.
Agni Yoga — followers of Roerich, by following the Vedic knowledge disclosed Roerich in his writings.
Vedic culture — a phrase from the concepts of “Veda”, “Cult”, ie, worship, praise and “Ra”. That is, it is worship, worship Shining Light of Wisdom and Truth of God.
Thus, the different communities call this faith in different ways, but all agree on common definitions — “Vedic culture” and “Veda”, because they are found in all of these names.
The most famous books of Vedic religion of India — the Vedas. Four of them. Rig Veda — “Veda hymns,” Sama-Veda — “Veda chants” Yajur Veda — “Veda of sacrificial formulas” and Atharva Veda — “Veda spells.” Later, the Vedas were composed commentaries — hundreds of philosophical treatises: Brahmins Samhita, Upanishads and Aaranyaka.
Additional Vedic literature of India — is the Mahabharata, the Ramayana and the Puranas. Heroic poem Mahabharata Indians revered as the fifth Veda, it is the greatest poem in the world, including one hundred thousand quatrains. In fact, the Mahabharata is a separate literature (the famous Bhagavad-Gita — the culminating part of the Mahabharata).
Ramayana — is a poem about an ancient hero and king of India Rama, the incarnation of God. The Puranas are a collection of stories of the incarnations of God, the life of the demigods.
Zoroastrian literature of Ancient Iran represented primarily Avesta, which has four parts: Yasnu (“worship”), Vispered (“all of the major head”), Videvdat (“the law against the demons”) and Yashty (“Hymn”). It was mentioned only sacred book of the contemporary denominations, not less extensive literature provide archaeological and ethnographic research in various countries of the East. Well as more recent works, based on the Unreached to us priestly books (eg, “Shah-Name” poet Ferdowsi).
And it would be wrong to assume that all of these texts are not related to the Russian Vedic tradition. On the contrary. Many of these texts tells of the lands lying to the north of India and Iran. This important and very ancient land description single Vedic civilization that existed in ancient times, and is revered and honored ancestral Aryans, the source of the Faith and Vedic Hindus and Zoroastrians.
Consideration should be given community of many texts, myths and stories of Russian and other Vedic traditions. Texts can be placed next Russian folk songs, spiritual poetry and similar texts of Indian and Iranian Vedic literature.
Compare these things will inevitably lead to the conclusion that the knowledge preserved in Russia and songs which have as their basis the same roots of Vedic culture.
The great spiritual heritage of Russia Vedic rightly be placed next to the living tradition of Vedic Eastern countries.
Ancient songs and tales in the oral tradition of Russia is well preserved. They are poetic, are available. Often Russian tradition sets forth the ancient song, very much loved by the people and not distorted by time. You can call the revered Old Believers “Book of Doves,” “Book of Animals”, “secret book”, the “Golden Book” and many other popular books.
A complete set of Slavic folk songs, tales, fairy tales and legends, spiritual poems — thousands of volumes. They contain the same reflection original Vedas.
In addition to thousands of volumes of Slavic folklore Russian Vedic literature is also presented Ancient Texts. First of all — the “Book of Veles”, then — “Boyan Anthem” and “The Tale of Igor’s Campaign”. Already now, monuments enough to talk about the great Russian Vedic literature and literary culture.
