Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
practicing yoga won't make you satanic, hindu or anything else that you don't want. Just like practicing a Japanese karate style won't make you Japanese.
 Quoting: s. d. butler


You see...it's comments like this that make me kinda realize I've got it right when I take your comment with a grain of salt. To an ignorant person, your statement might make a lot of sense. But...to people who actually read, learn, practice, etc., your statement is foolishness and useless.

Karate IS A RELIGION, ask those who follow it "religiously". There is one other particular religion that is often associated with Karate, Zen Buddhism. Wether you are aware that you're practicing a religion or not doesn't matter. If I teach you my religious practices but never tell you they're in fact religious, it doesn't mean you're not practicing a religion. It just means you're doing something without knowledge or understanding of where it originated. If "gods" or "demons" or "fallen angels" have taught people to contact the spirits through certain poses and chants, then...when a person learns these poses and chants during an exercise session, the spirits are still going to be called through the poses and chants wether you meant to call them or not!
 Quoting: Idgits


I practice both and neither one is a religion. They may be a way of life but there is no harm in that. It is all about unifying spirit, mind and the physical being. It is a path like any other. It has nothing to do with human created religions.

People have different ideas and approaches to life. Both hatha yoga and any form of martial arts are very positive practices.

Still I am talking about hatha yoga. I have no knowledge of any of the other limbs. I do know some of the tenets , do no harm and respect life. That seems very good to me.

If there are any bad spirits or anything of the sort I'm not aware of it. And to intimate that I somehow am being duped is strictly something not so good from your mind.

Tell you something. The prophets of the Bible saw visions and as I say, temples and cherubim and seraphim are similar to what you would see in these painting and drawings you see in Hare Krishna's books. Has any Christian here has ever tried to MEDITATE in such visions. Yoga is union and a yoke. Have you ever imagine together the visions of Isaiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, John of Apocalypse, Joel? Forget about Hindu gods, focus on the Man of Light surrounded by something like a COMPLETE rainbow, but emerald GREEN circular hall, the entity itself made with two stones, one white and the other one red, a bearded humanoid and a crystaline DOME like a UFO. Beneath the Being a waterfall of FIRE and wheels within wheels with eyes, beside these huge devices that only look wheels but are not wheels nor behaved like wheels, there are creatures with the face of a lion, a man, an eagle and a bull, having feet of a calf they are more bulls than the rest of animals (for the same reason cow is sacred in India,
Peru and was mummified in Egypt), and beneath them a crystal sea as well and other humanoid dressed in white..... even if you try to see such a vision or the odd scorpion-locust-centaurs with lion teeth...... it would be extremely rare if you ever have a glimpse. If you are gonna tell me THINKING or MEDITATING in these oddities during hours is okey... anyone who chooses the path of just accepting the Bagavad Gita or Mahabharatta could properly say such Christian is a pagan worshipping demons! Yet, in India that wouldn't be the case because they will understand is all part of the same thing! Even Muslim have similar depictions of centaurs like peacocks and humanoids with wings......

Thank you so much, and its true. Sometimes pushing your body, expands your mind. I have been trying to get my husband to do the yoga with me(It has AMAZING health benefites), but he too, is afraid. His fear is of heat, and the smell of other peoples bodies in that environment. Which, I must say, is honestly not too bad, your so focused on what your doing, and overcoming your mind, that you forget about the things around you.

Many people who have take the path of meditation will WITNESS in objective way this text of the Bible: [link to blb.compunauta.net] When the SILVER CORD is loosed.... of course, when the housekeepers tremble is talking about weak legs when you get old. In some meditations YOU KNOW the truth in saying after you die "the spirit goes to the Father" instead of just repeating like a parrot a memorized verse. Yoga has helped me a lot with my spine and legs and overcome depression years ago. Do you really think demons enter any body just like that? Man runs deep. A big eater Christian from Protestant church maybe a huge fat man who avoids drinking too much. Careful, man, because if one day you drink more than usual and start to do sissy gestures or being aggresive or with jealous or envy or sadness, don't blame the substance because all genre of evil maybe running inside your heart....

I am including these images because Christians are not impressed when you talk about health benefits or about the good effects in the physical body. They are afraid of whom may they channel with. So if you think trying not to be commanded by the never-stopping-brain is equivalent to the example of Christ (when the one possesed by the demon was in chains and he talked about the empty house......) is not just about the mind. If that is the problem you can still do the physical exercise and you can set whatever image you want in the screen of your mind. If you don't want to "empty" your mind (and I already said is not quite that), you can visualize these Biblical visions if you desire. The antenna of your mind will be set in wherever or whoever direction you wish.

Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
Interesting how many people left me negative karma over this thread. I feel I have been very objective...just because some people will not admit to blatant truth, as it comes from the mouth of the people who study, teach and follow yoga as part of their lives...not just as an exercise. This isn't going to be an objective thread as long as people deny what the truth is. The people who are some of the founders of the modern day techniques, who share the truth behind the Hindu religious system, are telling you folks that yoga is a form of calling spirits, gods and IS a pagan form of worship.


So many people want to argue that they've done this exercize for years and they've never been possessed...that means your heart was probably not in the right place to desire to be possessed, etc. It doesn't mean that what you were doing was not meant to call demonic spirits.

Too many people on here are not objective because they don't want to stop what they're doing. It's a classic idea.

Pagan in your concept is everything in the category of non-Christian or non-Biblical and as I said you also ignore your own Bible.

"Thousands of people stretched and posed on the streets of Times Square in a massive hot yoga practice that lived up to its name as temperatures in New York City climbed to nearly 100 degrees.

More than 14,000 people were expected on Wednesday to lay out on yoga mats and find their inner peace to celebrate the longest - and possibly hottest - day of the year with the summer solstice."

BUT besides my body, I see stregnth and flexibiblity and endurance of my mind. I have learned to turn off that little voice in my head, that says, you cant do it, just give up. I have learned to find peace withing myself, even when im pushed to extreme limits that the body probably shouldnt be pushed to.

The issue with people in this country is, if they dont understand something, or are afraid, they see it as evil or bad. Just because you dont understand yoga and bikram yoga doesnt make it evil.

Good post. Nicely said, especially the last paragraph. I practice Bikram with some other poses thrown in the sequence from Sanchez and Barkan.

Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
"Thousands of people stretched and posed on the streets of Times Square in a massive hot yoga practice that lived up to its name as temperatures in New York City climbed to nearly 100 degrees.

More than 14,000 people were expected on Wednesday to lay out on yoga mats and find their inner peace to celebrate the longest - and possibly hottest - day of the year with the summer solstice."

I've been writing in this topic about the Bible but it seems you're not capable to read or accept except everything that backs up your own belief, if that is called "truth" you must be Almighty Himself. Pagan in your concept is everything in the category of non-Christian or non-Biblical and as I said you also ignore your own Bible. If you "jump" my posts and others just to write your precioussssssss opinon, I guess it's time to rewind the tape and start reading once again some pages ago....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18410859


Here's the facts big guy...I am referencing information by the EXPERTS and FOUNDERS and Hindu priests who were passed the templates for Yoga from other Hindu priests. This is unarguable evidence. How is this a Christian approach, standpoint or basis? LoL That's like saying that black isn't black because Christians agree it's black! What lunacy is this?
 Quoting: Idgits


Big boy, allow me to remind since page 1 your link was this [link to www.sahajacult.com] Did you happen to READ the comparisons THEY DO with Christian terms? A site written by Christians who can manipulate statements out of context? This is the sort of lunacy we are dealing here. It seems even reading you are so dense you couldn't understand my posts. What I said is the very prophets of the Bible did odd practices and their visions pretty similar to what yoguis in India and shamans in other parts of the world have been witnessing. I mentioned the meaning of the word yoga as been yuj or yoke and union and some texts USED BY CHRISTIANS in order to convince the rest of people it's wrong to meditate in the way Hindues have done. I wonder what is your personal experience in this yoga thing..... Perhaps like thousands of Christians you have no experience at all but theory. It's like those idiots misquoting the Bible and thinking Christ or the apostles never drank wine but merely grape juice to justify their "purity".

This link you put deals with manipulation done by people and their churches, we are talking different topic here and you mingled two. One thing is the yoga practice and other thing is what people do. Even so-called Christians who don't practice yoga do manipulate and perform brainwashing system and what does it prove? Only that we don't need groups.

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


People always wanna throw up the scripture, don't judge for every little thing and its grossly misused...grossly. That is not the meaning of the Scripture verses that state, "Do not judge." There is a righteous kind of judgment we are supposed to exercise—with careful discernment (John 7:24). When Jesus told us not to judge (Matthew 7:1), He was telling us not to judge hypocritically. What Jesus was condemning here was hypocritical, self-righteous judgments of others. But dangerous activities that may take you away into the darkness, like dabbling in eastern religion, yeah, we very much should judge that.

Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
Interesting how many people left me negative karma over this thread. I feel I have been very objective...just because some people will not admit to blatant truth, as it comes from the mouth of the people who study, teach and follow yoga as part of their lives...not just as an exercise. This isn't going to be an objective thread as long as people deny what the truth is. The people who are some of the founders of the modern day techniques, who share the truth behind the Hindu religious system, are telling you folks that yoga is a form of calling spirits, gods and IS a pagan form of worship.


So many people want to argue that they've done this exercize for years and they've never been possessed...that means your heart was probably not in the right place to desire to be possessed, etc. It doesn't mean that what you were doing was not meant to call demonic spirits.

Too many people on here are not objective because they don't want to stop what they're doing. It's a classic idea.

NAH! . Christ didn't judge prostitutes and tax collectors who did evil things, he was against YOU REPRESENT, that is the pharisaic attitude of thinking you practice good things and a respectable life on the surface, the real evil thing runs deep within the heart, all sort pf wrath, envious, jealous, etc. He wasn't talking about "eastern religion" against western, that's why I said Christians are so narrow-minded that they can't even understand the parables were almost identical to Vedanta message but just turn them into "moral stories" with a lot of holes in the interpretation. I could defy what do you really think was the meaning of kingdom of God in Christ parables to see if you really know what you're talking about. You're misquoting the Scriptures, one thing is judging people and other thing is judging deeds. Christ -different than you- knew people's hearts. This topic is about yoga. You are judging the intention of the people who practice positions and meditation. One thing is to talk about people who wanna use certain experience to manipulate masses which is wrong even if yoga is not involved, and other is talking about the exercises themselves. General statement by people who have no experience is worthless, is a waste of time like trying to explain colors to blind people.

Re: Many Have Said Yoga Is Demonic Worship - If So - This Is Frightening!
Being tempted in the desert by Satan and fasting -like Moses and Elijah- during 40 days and night... that is dangerous, isn't it? Specially considering the temptation was a bit like that scapegoat sent to the desert as a sacrifice to the demon Azazel (Leviticus 16)..... It's a fact I know from a jewish in a synagogue and because the research shows the same thing, that "qanah" was was later on called weed or cannabis used in the incense..... some could call that Jewish practice "dangerous" isn't it? After all the mind could channel whomever, right? Why do you think Messiah kept himself a bit far away from his disciples to meditate up there, climbing up Tabor or Hermon mountains? Wouldn't it be to meditate in lonileness and with a bit extra oxygen running his brain??????
