Being a working towards Christian myself, there are only a few issues in Yoga that battle with Christianity. Some critics argue that Yoga and Christianity can’t co-exist, and but we all know that Yoga is just not a faith.
Nonetheless, that is dependent upon your opinion. Not too long ago, I used to be studying about somebody who claims Kundalini is “new age witchcraft.”
Sorry to say, one other individual not too long ago acknowledged, “Good Christians ought to keep away from the satan’s train,” in reference to Yoga.
Are the Salem witch trials nonetheless so near our hearts? These claims are fascinating as a result of ministers and clergymen have been working towards meditation for hundreds of years, with none complaints.
I suppose, if somebody devoted sufficient time to meditating on dangerous ideas, meditation could be a nasty expertise.
To be sincere, it relies upon upon what you meditate about; and in fact, inside some colleges of Yoga, Hinduism, or Buddhism is taught. For me, this has all the time been a battle, as I like Yoga, however don’t have any want to alter my religion.
The numerous teachings of Yoga and meditation, are non-sectarian. Now, if Yoga had been a faith, which wouldn’t it be? The rules of Yoga are common.
The Yamas and Niyamas are comparable, in precept, to the Ten Commandments, however as a Christian you could have the best to select and select what you need from Yoga. You even have the best to keep away from sectarian ashrams.
Yoga apply, and meditation, give many Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and Moslems, a better connection to God, however there’ll all the time be somebody who feels tempted to alter their religion.
Let’s be sincere, the individuals who fear a couple of sudden change of religion are, for probably the most half, rooted in two distinct camps of thought.
1. Somebody who’s on the fence about their very own faith and never fairly certain the place they actually stand.
2. Extreme intolerance of any concept that’s new or may end in opening the thoughts.
Let’s cease the intolerance now. When you find yourself driving in your automobile, ready in line, or come face-to-face with somebody who’s totally different from you, please set an instance in your kids and provides the opposite individual a break.
