Ask Everyone Else: Yoga

Dear Everyone Else,

Is yoga a bona fide spiritual practice or bullshit social networking tool?

[Your answer here]

I've been practicing yoga 5 days a week for the last three years. It's plain and simple: I do it because I am passionate about it. It has made me physically stronger than I have ever been. I don't do it to get a spiritual awakening and I don't do it to meet people, never have. Funny thing is, both has happened. I've met some amazing people in the process, life-long friendships no doubt. As you can see my view on it is simple: I do it because I love it.

Isn't it interesting that how when you do something for the process and the love of it and not for an end result, you get those things anyway. Today, I read an interview with Hilary Swank who may get a 3rd Oscar for her portrayal of Amelia Earhart and she said that she never made a movie for the hardware (Oscar) but always chose roles that moved her emotionally. I guess that chasing the prize is not always the best way to obtain it.

“To sustain themselves, tomorrow’s individuals must have yogic training. It is a need of the times. By 2013, forty to sixty percent of the population will be practicing yoga. People will see that those who practice yoga are bright and beautiful, calm and blissful. They will recognize that the yogic community is sincere and dependable, serving and giving.
Yoga, with its every system, is going to prevail. We clearly see this trend, and it will lead to the end of human insanity and the prevalence of yogic glory. Yoga is a science for all humanity. It is the custodian of human grace and radiance. It holds a great future for every human being. It brings mental caliber for purpose and prosperity of life. The future of yoga is bright, bountiful, and blissful.” Yogi Bhajan, April 1999
