Pat Robertson said during one of his shows (hubby and I saw a clip on Youtube) that yoga was satanism.

Both our jaws dropped. Neither one of us are practicing Christians, nor do we practice yoga ... but come on ... how in the WORLD did that man equate yoga with satanism ???

Some of the stupidest things come out of that man's mouth and yet people continue to send him money. I kill brain cells trying to figure that out. ARGH!
 Quoting: OnTheFence


You really must be aware of what yoga does. Just because they're not using the American hyped up analogies of people screaming out pleas for satan to enter them, doesn't mean they're not channeling or calling for spiritual embodiment, otherwise known as possession. Every single major teacher of yoga will tell you that you ARE CHANNELING SPIRITS into your body. You can't deny, that is NOT a CHRISTIAN definition, this is the statement of all the people who founded and teach yoga. Stop denying truth!


This is one more yoga teaching and defining group

"Steps of Nada Yoga
Focus attention on the spirit through visualization, mantramic repetition, or feeling the essence of your spirit.

Contemplate at the seat of the spirit, bringing the attention into union with the spirit. Repeat your contemplative mantra to increase awareness.

Through absorption, the spirit enters the inner channels of the Nada. It opens the blocked areas in these channels to the level of the ensouling entity. Do this for light and sound, or any other channels present in the domain in which you work."

 Quoting: Idgits


I have been a yoga instructor since 1995 as well as a practitioner, and not once in all my years of asana have i channeled a spirit other than my own and no spirit has entered my psyche, body or soul. My hatha practice, asana, physical yoga, is strictly a discipline to balance my body and mind. Hence the origin of the word yoga, meaning union.

While there are many yogic paths and philosophies the fundamental interpretation of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras thousand of years old, are concise and give no mention of channeling spirits of any kind. Read them for yourself if you will, best not to let others interpret great books for you as you may be misled.....

Yoga has absolutely NOTHING TO DO with summer solstice ritualistic practices of people involved with wicca and black magic. If they are doing it in the USA, is because American society is fucked up. Yoga is not evil and only Christian fundamentalists and bible tards believe it.

Yoga is an eastern religion. It's purpose is to connect with pagan deities. We are told explicitly by Paul in the Bible that such deities are demons. It's that simple.

In fact the Yogi's themselves admit as much:

""Is Yoga a religion that denies Jesus Christ? Yes. Just as Christianity denies the Hindu MahaDevas such as Siva, Vishnu, Durga and Krishna, to name a few, Hinduism and its many Yogas have nothing to do with God and Jesus (though we do respect that others believe in this way). As Hindus who live the Yogic lifestyle, we appreciate when others understand that all of Yoga is all about the Hindu religion. Modern so-called 'yoga' is dishonest to Hindus and to all non-Hindus such as the Christians."

 Quoting: SevenThunders


This is a difficult topic for several reasons. First there's a general misunderstanding and even ignorance about people's OWN faith and also about everything foreign. I had the Christian brainwashing system teaching me everything about Hinduism or other religions is pagan and evil just to glorify Christianism, yet the documents of the Bible were in the hands of the very pagan Vatican which even owns banks and created Holy Inquisition, Crusades and has been involved in all wars. As a matter of fact they didn't include the Gospel of Thomas along with the other 4 and is quite similar except certain verses in which it's defied the chauvinist macho concept of deity. As a matter of fact jewish people rejected everything preached by Christ because his message looked pretty VEDANTA talking about the inner father, the light which illuminates the whole body, the praying in silence, the inner chambers, the I AM the path, the kingdom which is not outside like Jehovah's Witnesses imagine but within if we pay attention to Greek text, the "repent" which in Aramaic is "teshuva" meaning get back to yourself, the YOKE which is yuj or the equivalent of yoke in sanscrit, etc. etc, etc. I have done the yoga asanas and never got in contact with any entity and my breathing is better, the muscles and bones. I guess if Christians saw Messiah getting away from the 3 favorite disciples climbing up Hermon or Thabor and a cloud covered them and a couple of dead men Moses and Eliyah talking with him about FUTURE EVENTS in Jerusalem, they would treat Christ as a yogui consulting dead and want to stone them all, hence CHrist said " don't mention this to anyone"..... but Christians didn't even read the whole scripture from Genesis to Apocalypse except memorizing some verses and studying "topics", how would they understand deeper? And I have to confess there are different paths of yoga and perhaps some asanas and with certain mind antenna attitude could contact with something evil even when it has not been my experience.... now the Hndu gods look like cherubim mentioned in Ezekiel, don't they?????

Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
Osho was poisoned little by little just by explaining how society, education and religion work against man and taught some excellent exercises trying to achieve consciousness. The man died. Everyone saying to do something out of the box will be exterminated. He and Krishnamurti basically said the systems don't help men but just a possibility which is very rare. This thing about Hinduism became -like everything in USA- a sort of Mc Donald consume, put in bags and sell the package of salvation. Even to master physical asanas is extremelly hard and usually western people only care about certain physical benefits. I mean if Rachel Welch preserves her beauty with yoga, women are gonna practice the superficial training just to,look like her and that was never the case in India. It's absurd the saying meditation is setting your mind in blank like watching a white screen in front of a movie theatre screen because the THOUGHTS arise and our mind is always thinking like a monkey jumping from one tree to another, endlessly. It's more OBSERVATON of the thoughts, as if they were clouds passing by and because of the observation there will be a change, the observer gets conscious of what is observed or thought, another perception, this is just a first step. In my experience doing Mind Silva method I saw visions, like Apocalypse much deeper than any stone trip with mushrooms or ayahuasca and I tell you this, I saw a black pit of darkness as if I were in a black hole and the FEAR made me consciously get of of there but closed a door and no key can open that ..... so, just few yoguis can tell about perils or advantages....... in a time where are no masters, what do you do? Christ message was not for the mob which is 90% of mankind, just for some disciples... and the transfiguration happen as a promise of witnessing the inner kingdom of God he did a week earlier.... you don't know anything, I don't know anything and few know something .... May the peace be with you, shalom, salaam.....

we must judge, or decern.

when we see sin we must acknowledge it is sin and warn our children not to do that

to see sin you must be able to judge.

God is very protective of children and anyone causing these little ones to stray from God will be in trouble for it.
and that means those that see sin and say nothing are part of the problem.

actually, no, judging others isn't a sin. That's a misinterpretation of the scripture. In fact, there are many places we are instructed to judge others so we aren't stupid naive little babies in our thinking.

Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
btw, for everyone who thinks this is NOT a religion, note how these pagans gathered to do this on the SUMMER SOLSTICE. They were doing the sun (worship) sign no doubt. It is impossible to worship the sun and Jesus too.

I saw a picture of a daycare in my area on the front of the newspaper. The little tykes were all being taught yoga. Aww, how harmless and healthy is that? Underneath, it is read that the instructor was teaching them to do the sun sign, designed as a worship to the sun. They were all doing it in the picture. I nearly fell over. If you had complained (I did, I wrote the daycare), you would have been thought looney. That is the way you are treated these days. "Thou shalt have no other God before me" is a commandment.

I was ostracized at a workplace a few years ago for not joining the company yoga class. I didn't even tell them why, but they knew I was a Christian and the pagans pushed and pushed and pushed me. It was part of my last days at that job. Really sick working environment.

Last time I did Yoga I felt the presence of God and Jesus. Yoga is a sophisticated way to get in shape both physically and spiritually. Yoga I suppose like a computer can be used for both good and evil; in the end it is relative to the user.

Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
So ya see what FEAR does?..it makes you fearful.
"the devil is everywhere" FEAR is used for war, to justify killing people, persecutions, torture, manipulation, divisions..
theres that famous saying christians have; The devils greatest weapon is that ya dont believe in him"
Really¿??..The devils greatest weapon is FEAR, fear that he's doing his devilish works in people which ONLY people that BELIEVE in him are subject to. You see, the "devil" cant harm you if you dont let him in, if your mind is free from all that crap, if your mind is peaceful and full of light and you dont even ACKNOWLEDGE the "devil's" existence..you close a door and he cant come in. Try it sometime, you might find peace instead of FEAR and you might even enjoy Life and all its colours with all its flaws and wonders with all its different expressions and cultures, its amazing religions and history.The Human Story..without FEAR.

Isnt judging others a sin? so when you say people who do yoga are bad and arent following Jesus, you are judging others.You are sinning in Gods eyes.
 Quoting: MONSTER


Ah the "judgement" card. About as stupid as the "race" card and used just as prolifically.

I can only "judge" you by NOT telling you the truth. Deeming you as unworthy or a waste of my time.

In telling you the truth I am in fact, doing the opposite of judging you.

Like Jesus said, go sit in a closet.

Iam a traditional yogi , and yoga have nothing with all this non sense ideias of demoniac practices , spirits and all that bullshit...

yoga is not religion, yoga is more like science than anything else, is the hindu ancient science methodology of self-realization.


go study and meet real yogis before start to repeat that non sense that fundamentalist terrorists religions spred out...



yoga can be practiced by anyone, no matter what religion you follow , you can be also atheist, or whatever you want....


yoga is yoga.

Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
btw, for everyone who thinks this is NOT a religion, note how these pagans gathered to do this on the SUMMER SOLSTICE. They were doing the sun (worship) sign no doubt. It is impossible to worship the sun and Jesus too.

I saw a picture of a daycare in my area on the front of the newspaper. The little tykes were all being taught yoga. Aww, how harmless and healthy is that? Underneath, it is read that the instructor was teaching them to do the sun sign, designed as a worship to the sun. They were all doing it in the picture. I nearly fell over. If you had complained (I did, I wrote the daycare), you would have been thought looney. That is the way you are treated these days. "Thou shalt have no other God before me" is a commandment.

I was ostracized at a workplace a few years ago for not joining the company yoga class. I didn't even tell them why, but they knew I was a Christian and the pagans pushed and pushed and pushed me. It was part of my last days at that job. Really sick working environment.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1369739


It's called a Surya Namaskara,(sun salutation) It is not done to worship the sun it is the beginning of the Ashtanga series of yoga asanas,(postures) in order to generate heat aerobically to prepare the body for the deeper poses in the sequence. The same as process as any athlete who stretches prior to more vigorous physical discipline.

There is no spiritual connotation, just a figure of speech to describe an action of physical yoga,(Hatha), which far predates all the major religions practiced in the western world at this juncture. No one is trying to trick you, yoga asana will make you healthier than you have ever been and give you more mental clarity and balance which you can freely use to improve whatever your religious conviction and practice. Hatha yoga was a physical method designed calm the mind to prepare the body for meditation, there were no dictates written in the sutras which dictate who one must meditate to of for.
