This study, with the help of combined research methods, focuses on the analysis of the activities of groups claiming to be Vedic Slavs in Slovakia. Although these groups lay claim to a unified basis – the published canon of the Slavic-Aryan Vedas – they show considerable differences in the interpretations and applications of this doctrine. Currently, they also show certain similarities in their organization, namely, unclear institutionalization and unclear boundaries between religion and spirituality. The results of this research thus confirm the validity of the theory of social theorists about the blurring of the boundaries between spirituality and religiosity even in the Slovak alternative religious milieu.
