Gregorian Bivolaru

Gregorian Bivolaru (born March 12, 1952, aka Yogacharya Grieg, Atma, nickname Grieg or Grig) is an author from Romania, a conspiracy theorist, and founder of the cult "Movement for Spiritual Integration into the Absolute" (MISA). Bivolaru currently lives in Sweden where he was granted asylum, because he sees himself treated unfairly by Romanian authorities. He further feels he is prosecuted by a giant satanic conspiracy of Freemasons, Illuminati and reptiloids.[1] In 2005, Bivolaru was officially recognized as an asylum seeker in Sweden. [2]

Bivolaru calls himself a "Professor for Yoga"[3] of an "International Himalayan Vishwaguru Yoga University" and a French "Universal Academy for Peace" (which seems to be the "Alliance Universelle pour la Paix par la Connaissance" or "AUPAC" which today is called AIPEM "Association Internationale des Educateurs pour la Paix Mondiale" or "International Association of Educators for Peace").

Bivolaru spreads Doomsday Visions.[4] He believes the HI-Virus, which causes AIDS, was man-made in a laboratory and that its production had been ordered by NWO-authorities to reduce the world population.[5]

Biography and criminal record

Arrest

Gregorian Bivolaru was born in Tărtăşeşti, Romania (District Ilfov, now Dâmboviţa) in 1952 and went to school in Bucarest. He claims to have had a spiritual awakening in his youth: It was revealed to him he was a Yogi from Tibet. Bivolaru affirms he has read a great many books, which led him to invent his own version of yoga in 1978. However, he first worked as a plumber, and only later became interested in yoga. In 1977 he was sentenced to one year in prison for spreading pornographic material, but profited from an amnesty by dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu. In 1984 he was sentenced again for conspiring against Ceaucescu.

Together with 20 other "yoga-teachers", Bivolaru was accused of trafficking in human beings, sexual assault, and sexual abuse of minors, which caused him to make a secret escape to Sweden. Furthermore, a lawyer formerly representing Bivolaru sued him for the amount of 666.666 Euro.

The house searches performed in Romania and the details spread by mass bedia about alleged or real victims also received some criticism.[6]

In January 1990 (after the end of Ceauşescu's communism in Romania 1989), Bivolaru founded his "Mişcarea de Integrare Spirituală în Absolut", Movement for Spiritual Integration into the Absolute", MISA[8] in Bucarest, which claimed to propagate yoga and Ayurveda. Bivolaru managed to attract a huge number of supporters and the organisation spread to other countries, especially in northern Europe, where he founded branch organisations. In consequence of criticism by Romanian media, Bivolaru officially withdrew from MISA leadership, while remaining its spiritual guide. The movement had up to 40 Ashrams or "Centres of research, teaching and healing" with about 200 instructors. In post-communist Romania, MISA's bizarre esotericism experienced criticism. There were accusations of "blasphemy" and "anti-Christian" activities.

In April 2008, the "European Yoga Council" excluded MISA from their list. MISA and all its international branches were banned from the International Yoga Federation and the European Yoga Aliance. Shri Yogacharya Ajita, president of the European Yoga Council of the European Yoga Alliance, explained:

My official resolution as president of the European Yoga Council of the European Yoga Alliance is that Mihai Stoian, Grieg Bivolaru and all people linked to the MISA/NATHA organization are immediately expelled from our organization and that we stop their membership, because it has been proven that they are not busy with Yoga in whatever form, that they even use Yoga as a cover for illegal practices, that they do not respect the rules and standards of our organization, that they show an unheard lack of moral integrity, and cannot be convinced to change their attitude.

Porn videos (e.g. "To pee or not to pee") of a "secret test" of MISA appeared on the internet. This "spiritual test" concerned "urine orgasms" of MISA adepts during an annual MISA competition for "Miss Shakti". The adepts had not given their consent to these recordings. In 2009, there where reports in Denmark regarding pornography and prostitution in the local branch.

Former MISA members are active on the internet with their own critical project (EXMISA).[9][10] The Danish NATHA-Center[11][12] founded by Bivolaru is a MISA branch, led by his student Mihai Stoian.
