Yoga: In Search of the Christ Within

Jesus said,  ”For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.” Yoga is the art to find out that kingdom.

I recently returned from a week-long Yoga meditation retreat from Rishikesh, India.  I liked the yoga classes.  It helped me to understand the deep relation between the myself and Jesus.

This yoga classes were particularly delightful for me. Yes, the place was beautiful, it was peaceful, it was quiet, it was nice and away from all telephones and computers, all tasks and ordinary demands, all talking, all purposeful activities.

The people attended the retreat were all excellent.  In life we want enjoyment; we want to avoid pain and discomfort. I think Yoga is the right answer for that. Yoga and service to others was the true message of Christ. Jesus said, “You have burned enough in the sun, in the heat. You have roamed all over the place. Just come inside; this room is ready for you.” You are made up of love. Everyone is full of love and love is God. So you are made up of God! God is not an object of senses, but the feeling of feelings, the presence of presence, the sound of silence, the light of life, the essence of the world and the taste of bliss.

Yoga practice the postures, free hand exercises and special breathing techniques, which open energy channels and centers of awareness, activating them to higher levels of  consciousness.

Yoga is independent of any religion.  There is no such thing as Christan Yoga, Buddhist Yoga, or like that.

It has hardly any relation with religion. It is like Science.  Science is looking the truth in the material world. Whereas, Yoga is looking the truth in the body, mind and soul.  Yoga is to keep yourself and the environment in harmony and happiness.

Yoga makes the mind body and soul flexible and prepare you for the eternal glorious life.  Yoga makes you strong, firm and steadfast in every sense. Yoga makes this life and the life after as the place of Paradise.

Yoga is to increase your faith in your own religion.

Yoga is acknowledging the divine power of God within us.

If you are a Christan, Yoga will help you to increase your faith on Jesus.

It has nothing against Christianity.

Yoga increases, faith on your God, godliness, brotherly kindness; and  love to every being.
