Maria Devi Christos

Great White Brotherhood


Beloe Bratstvo, Yusmalos, Usmalos


Yuoann Swami (b. Yuri Krivinogov), Maria Devi Christos (b. Marina Tsvigun) (1960-)


Maria Devi Christos (1960-), John-Peter II (b. Vitaly Kovalchuck)


Ukraine (1990)


Maria Devi Christos took advantage of the breakup of the USSR and launched a new occult movement claiming communication with the celestial Great White Brotherhood with herself as a living goddess.


Not long after the movement began it came into conflict with the Russian Orthodox Church, which emerged from the demise of the Soviet Union with renewed vigor to re-establish itself and fight off all other Christian denominations and cults. The Great White Brotherhood was prohibited, and the couple were persecuted. In late 1993 authorities were concerned that the group might be planning a mass suicide; the two were arrested and imprisoned for four years. In 1997 they were granted amnesty and released.
