Freedom Park Hosts Global High Tech Agitation Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam's world wide protest today against the proposed ban on The Baghavad Gita in Russia Bangalore, India - Monday, December 26th 2011 – Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam and devotees of Paramahamsa Nithyananda today staged a worldwide silent protest against the ongoing trial of the sacred Hindu scripture Bhagavad Gita in Russia on the charges of religious extremism. The trial was reportedly instigated by a local branch of the Russian Orthodox Church, and initiated by the State Prosecutor’s office in Tomsk, Russia, as an initiative to restrict the activity of the ISKCON movement in Russia. In addition to the scores of devotees, many of them from other countries, who gathered together in the now famous Freedom Park in Bangalore, the high tech protest was conducted simultaneously in 27 countries and 219 cities across the world with all of them interacting together via two-way video conferencing and one-way web video casting. Mokshapriyan, one of the organizers of the protest and a former employee of the technology giants such as Google and Microsoft in the US, said that it was possibly one of the first uses of such high technology for an agitation on a global scale and a sure sign of things to come. Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam, he added, was unique in that it was spearheading the use of state of the art modern technologies while at the same time researching and reviving some of the most ancient and powerful sciences of the Vedic times including meditation, healing and yoga. Earlier in the day, Swami Nithyananda addressed the devotees around the globe from his headquarters in Bidadi near Bangalore. He talked about the power of the Bhagavad Gita to educate and transform humanity and how it was applicable today just as it was thousands of years ago during the times of Krishna. He talked about one of the key understandings expounded by the Gita - of working incessantly in an unclutched mood. Unclutching being a state where your enthusiasm is unperturbed by the returns from the action. Later, the devotees at freedom park and the online cities held banners protesting against the ban and distributed flyers to people visiting the park.
