The Czech section of the Arya Samaj was founded on 28th October 2006
on the day of the 88th anniversary of the independence of the Czechoslovak Republic,
at the International Summit of the Arya Samaj (अंतर्राष्ट्रीय आर्य महासंमेलन - antarrāṣṭrīya ārya mahāsammelan) in Delhi,
together with Armenian and Russian sections, as the first three sections the Arya Samaj in the post-bolshevist countries.

Contrary to the widespread mistake, the Arya Samaj is not any church, religious organization, or neo-Hindu sect, for which it is sometimes regarded by faulty assimilation to in the West better known, but otherwise already insignificant and marginal Bengali neo-Hindu religious sect the Brahmo Samaj, that famous only because it led the renowned Bengali writer and thinker Rabindranath Tagore. The Arya Samaj is a socio-cultural society, whose mission and goal is to grow, protect and to spread the primordial Indo-European culture, its noble ideals, dharma, yoga and knowledges. The Arya Samaj is not a religious society, ecclesiastical association, or any (neo-)Hindu organisation, but it is society of the Vedic civilization, culture and Dharma. In the conditions of Slavic cultures (Czech, Russian, etc.) in addition to Indo-Aryan Vedic culture is also grown to it closely related Slavic-Aryan Vedic culture (Slavic-Aryan Vedas), even though it was destroyed by the Christian aggressors, and not survived functional to present days, just as the Indo-Aryan culture, civilization, wisdom and the Dharma. The Noble Society – Ārya Samāj was founded at 10th April 1885 in Bombay, India by Maharishi Swami Dayanand Saraswati to protect traditional Indian civilization and culture before British colonial rule and its ministering – Christian missionaries, who tried to subvert and destroy the Indian culture, similar way as a thousand years earlier did with the Slavic culture. Therefore, the Arya Samaj, in the context of Western civilization, can be compared more to the French-Enlightenment Cult of Reason and Cult of the Supreme Being, or the Czech Hussitism, than to any Reformist or Protestant Religious streams, which is to be compared eg the Bengali neo-Hindu sect – the Brahmo Samaj.
Half a year after the founding of Arya Samaj, in September 1875, was founded in New York the Theosophical Society, that almost four years – from May 1878 until March 1882 – functioned as part of the Arya Samaj, look: Theosophical Society of the Arya Samaj of Aryavarta. So as the first contact of the Czech nation with Arya Samaj can be considered establishing the first Czech Theosophical lodge in 1891.

British colonial strategy 40 years before Arya Samaj founding:
Zpráva lorda Macaulay britskému parlamentu

I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage and therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, and truly dominated nation.

Lord Macaulay to the British Parliament,
2nd February 1835

Principles of Arya Samaj

  1. Ishwara (= The Supreme Absolute) is the primary cause of all true knowledge and of every thing known by its means.
  2. Ishwara (= The Supreme Absolute) is absolute Truth (Sat), absolute intelligence (Chit), and is all Bliss (Anand).
    He is incorporeal, Almighty, Just, Merciful, Unborn, Infinite, Unchangeable, Beginningless, Incomparable, the Support of all,
    All-pervading, Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Eternal, Immortal, Fearless, Holy and Creator of the Universe.
    To him alone worship is due.
  3. The Vedas are the books of true knowledge. It is the paramount duty of every Arya to read, teach, hear and recite them.
  4. All ought to be ready to accept truth and renounce untruth.
  5. All acts ought to be performed in conformity to Dharma (virtue and righteousness).
  6. The primary object of Arya Samaj is to promote welfare of the whole world,
    i.e. to promote physical, spiritual and social progress of all human beings.
  7. All ought to be treated with love, justice and with due regard to their merits.
  8. Ignorance (Avidya) must be dispelled; and the knowledge (Vidya - realization and acquisition of true knowledge) should be promoted.
  9. No one should be contented with his own welfare alone, but every one should regard his or her prosperity in the common welfare of all.
  10. One should subordinate oneself for the common welfare of the society, while one is free to act for his/her own welfare.
