Since Dieter Dambiec posts here claiming that Ananda marga teaches
Tantra Yoga, let's see what they think of Ananda Marga in Greece. Here
is information from: 

Ananda Marga (AMURT etc.)

It was founded by Sri-Sri Anandamurti (Brabhat Rajan Sarkar)
in 1955, and is based in Calcutta. It owns numerous
organizations all over the world and aims in resuming
authority, so that "cosmic society" may dominate.

Anandamurti is regarded as an incarnation of Brahma, as a
top-ranking guru and as the supreme power of the Universe
(!). In 1971 he was sentenced to life imprisonment together
with 4 other people, for the assassination of 14 ex-members
of the organization. During Anandamurti's imprisonment,
(which lasted until 1978, when Indira Ghandi won the
elections), his followers made a lot of terrorist attacks;
two young protesting Westerners burned themselves!

Ananda Marga is a very dangerous cult; it does not hesitate
to use violence. Its followers, who call each other "Dada"
(brothers) and "Didi" (sisters), are forced to be bound by
celibacy, use yoga and be vegetarians; they are not allowed
to doubt the guru. Some of the Greeks who lived in
coenobiums of this cult in India gave it up after they
suffered hell on earth.

Hinduists manifestate peacefully; yet, they prepare
themselves to... kill the "faithless".    

Recently, members of this cult (which has a branch at
Kypseli, Athens, near Saint George church) distributed
brochures, asking from Kypseli inhabitants to offer foods
and first aid supplies for the Kurds who were sheltered at
Saint Andrew, Rafina region. In these brochures, Ananda
Marga presents itself as a charity organization. God knows
what happens with these supplies... or what Ananda Marga - a
terrorist organization, watched by Interpol - expects by
helping the Kurds...
