Something went wrong. Please try your request again later. He spent most of his childhood with his grandmother Efrosinia Verkhusha, a village healer. Since he lived in Novosibirsk and worked as a photographer with Novosibirskoblfoto, a service company. At the beginning of Perestroika reforms of the late s he was the president of the Inter-Regional Association of Siberian Entrepreneurs.
In he organized two large-scale trade expeditions with a fleet of river steamers along the River Ob along the route Novosibirsk -- Salekhard -- Novosibirsk at his own expense. On this trip, an encounter with Anastasia in the Siberian taiga changed his entire life. It had been a secret for a long time for relatives and friends what made him, an entrepreneur with ten years experience, to pledge his property and spend his savings on unprofitable trading trips.
The mystery was revealed in his books with Anastasia as the main character. Vladimir Megre brought something really invaluable from the trips. In the author became Laureate of Gusi Peace Prize. By now 11 millions copies of the books translated into 20 languages have been sold.
In another book "Anasta" was issued. The author plans to write a scenario on the basis of his books. The author comments about himself and his books: Good shall prevail on the earth! Water will prove to be the criterion; the measure of all things. With each day that passes, the water seethes with more and more contamination. The above words were pronounced by a character from my books: a recluse from the Siberian taiga, Anastasia.
My name is Vladimir Megre. I was born on the twenty-third of July, , in a Ukrainian village. The most important aspect of my life emerged after my meeting with Anastasia.
It was the beginning of perestroika in Russia, and I had just gone into business. I was a leader of the Entrepreneurs of Siberia Association. I used to sail with goods on a motor ship over the Siberian river Ob up toward the Arctic circle. I enjoyed wandering around the taiga by myself, while the ship was moored.
It was on an isolated bank of a taiga river that I one day met a recluse from the Siberian taiga. Her name was Anastasia, and she would soon transform my outlook on life. I saw a woman standing on the bank alone and looking at the river.
She was wearing an old quilted jacket, a long skirt and rubber galoshes of the kind worn by inhabitants of the Siberian backwoods. On her head was a scarf, tied in such a way that it covered most of her face.
I approached her and asked if she knew where in the taiga I could find a ringing cedar which I had been told about by local old-timers, who claimed that its seed cones had healing powers. The woman answered that she could show me the place but that we had to go deep into the taiga for it. I agreed. We walked several kilometers and then sat down for some rest.
I took cognac and sandwiches from my bag and welcomed the woman to have a snack with me. Even more surprising was the fact that Anastasia could communicate with wild animals inhabiting the area around her glade, almost as we do with our domestic animals. I spent three days with Anastasia on the taiga glade in her habitation place.
She turned out to be an interesting and very unusual person. One could believe Anastasia remembered all her kin ancestors starting from the creation of the world and could speak about them in minute detail.
She also told me about ancient parables and rites that were still relevant nowadays. Surprisingly, she knew our modern life as well, though not in detail, of course, but she gave interesting assessments. This had already taken place in the history of the terrestrial civilization and led to the death of the majority of people inhabiting the planet. A number of questions arose within me: If the human community consists of rational beings, why does it pollute the water it drinks and the air it breathes?
Why have people chosen the way of life that leads them to consume mostly low-quality food? Why does Anastasia and people like her only have to reach out their hands to get first-class food, while I and people like me have to work hard in order to get tinned goods? Why, as we keep speaking of spirituality, culture and human values, are there constant wars in the world?
Is paradise possible on earth, or is it possible only beyond the illusory clouds? Besides, I was an unknown author at the time.
Once I had sold ten books, the sale question was settled. All these years, since my first meeting with Anastasia, the recluse from the taiga, I have pondered the essence of being. I have tried to analyze life as it has been experienced by different peoples in various historical periods, so as to find out who was the happiest in the course of history known to us. I wrote one book after another, sometimes without any hope of being understood.
At first I was criticized by the press for my statements, and I was subjected to ridicule. Nevertheless, I continued my writing. Many readers of my books started actually changing their ways of life. In Russia there started taking place events that, I believe, marked the beginning of the lifestyle evolution in the human community. An amazing thing happened, too. People of different religions, nationalities and social status started uniting into groups.
I am deeply convinced that our planet has a great future. The whole planet will turn into a blooming, heavenly oasis. The water in our rivers, lakes and seas will be salutary and the air, instead of bearing the fumes of car exhaust, will be redolent with the fragrance of nourishing, healing ambrosia.
Our civilization will be the first in the entire history of the planet to unite the opposites: the technocratic world and the achievements of the divine creations. This is not a fantasy, it is the great future. We can sense it already, today. Tens of thousands of Russian citizens have already begun to materialize it. They are doing so without support from governments and states.
Millions are dreaming of it, and I am no longer alone as a believer. People are not creating this future on paper but through their work, right on the ground. I will be happy to welcome each and every person who joins the creation of the great future. Talks about spirituality are only empty words if they come to nothing. The great spirituality of a real person should be realized in the beautiful and the material. We will all live in a beautiful land, having created the beauty through our thoughts and our very own hands.
If you want to be happy, be happy on the basis of your creation. I am happy to receive the Guzi Prize. It is going to be an extra impulse in creating a great future on this, our only earth.
