Scientology on the Silk Road

Scientology Mission in Karaganda, Kazakhstan
Public throughout the community regularly take Dianetics and Scientology services at the Karaganda Mission in Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan is a country of over 1,000,000 square miles stretching from the Caspian Sea to China, larger in physical mass than 9 European countries combined. They are a grand people originating from Mongol nomadic tribes and give the impression of classic Mongol warriors when garbed in their traditional clothing. In the 18th century they were conquered by Russia and were freed from the clutches of the USSR in 1991! And with that freedom soon came a gift: for the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, which was already spreading like wildfire across Russia, then made its way across the border into the country of Kazakhstan. In fact, even the government-owned stores were stocking Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.

The peoples of Kazakhstan need this technology to help them. For the famed Silk Road (the ancient trade route that linked China with the West) has now become a drug corridor for trafficking the opium and hard drugs from the East into Europe and Russia.

There are other serious problems in this country such as the residue affecting both man and land from Soviet nuclear testing done in Kazakhstan for nearly half a century; urgent solutions are needed to the resulting debilitating illnesses from the contamination.

So it is that Dianetics swept through this country, providing real solutions to the Kazakhs for both physical and mental ailments. People began applying the  techniques of Dianetics in living rooms, kitchens and halls, with scores of people listening to radio shows airing up to twice a week on this newfound technology. And on the heels of this, by 1995 the first two Church of Scientology Missions had opened. Within 18 months, the next landmark occurred: on 25 Dec. 1996, the Church of Scientology Mission of Almaty received their official religious registration.

Increasingly encountering people who had been affected by the Soviet nuclear testing, the urgency to deliver the Purification Rundown program, developed by L. Ron Hubbard, was dire. So mission staff were sent to train on how to deliver this vital service, while in the north another mission opened in Semipalatinsk, the city at the heart of the problem, right in the region where this nuclear testing had occurred.

As stated by L. Ron Hubbard, “The discoveries I made with this vitamin in the ’50s began with its apparent effect on radiation exposure. At that time there was a lot of bomb testing and general radiation exposure and we had lots and lots of preclears who had been subjected to atomic tests, atomic accidents and, in at least one case, to materials that had been part of an old atomic explosion. We were engaged in salvaging these people and we succeeded."

Miracle successes such as this one occur daily: “The results of the Purification Rundown were simply amazing. During the rundown I got rid of a great amount of radiation. In the 1990s I lived in Tomsk City, where there was an emergency at the radiation plant. And although the city officials asserted that no radiation was emitted at the time, on the Purification Rundown I realized that this was not true and how much it had affected me.

“I went through a lot on this program and at one point for around 10 minutes I felt hopeless and like dying. Then I came out of this state and I became well and extremely happy. The next day in the sauna I saw a mental picture of a building. I suddenly realized that this building was familiar to me, but I could not remember where I had seen it. Then I recalled a picture of a sign on the wall of this building and it read ‘The Institute of Nuclear Physics’. I remembered that as a student I visited this place for two weeks to be trained. Again, it was an area loaded with radiation.

“When I completed the program I felt fantastic. I am so happy. I know that I can handle everything that I may face in the future. Thanks to Ron for this program. It has brought me back to LIFE.”—S.B.

The number of Scientology Missions in Kazakhstan is growing at a rapid rate. There are now ten missions reaching out and getting new people started on Dianetics and Scientology services—services ranging from how to make work earsier to improving a marriage—all to handle the problems they are facing in life.
