1. This is the history of yoga, not Hinduism.
2. Yoga and Hinduism are two separate traditions.
3. The word and concept of Hinduism was coined much later than the practices of yoga:
“It should be pointed out that the word ‘Hindu’ is not found in any of the classical writings of India. Nor can it be traced to the classical Indian languages, such as Sanskrit or Tamil. In fact, the word ‘Hinduism’ has absolutely no origins within India itself.” Source:

Comment on History of Yoga by Parvati Tue, 21 Feb 2017 22:12:02 +0000 http://localhost/wordpress5/?p=582#comment-12177 Why isn’t Hinduism mentioned in any part of this article?? The author does mention Hinduism’s holy scriptures peppered throughout the article but fails to connect it to the religion. Odd and disappointing. For instance, right off the bat, the statement: “The word yoga was first mentioned in the oldest sacred texts, the Rig Veda.”

Here’s another one: “The Vedas were a collection of texts containing songs, mantras and rituals to be used by Brahmans, the Vedic priests.” I suppose I should be happy that the word “Vedic” is mentioned because that’s what we Hindus are – Vedic. So, why couldn’t the word “Hindus” be included in parentheses after that statement so that people could make the connection and be truly educated?

Also odd that “Brahmins” is mentioned but again no Hinduism – I suppose Hinduism is only mentioned when there’s something negative to say.

The Rig Vedas are the religious texts of the Hindus. So is the holy Bhagavad Gita. What’s next? These religious scriptures won’t belong to Hindus anymore? WTH.

This is just a conspiracy against Hinduism many foreigners fooled innocent people of India and looted us in the past still we foolishly follow the latest trends from the west .


Comment on 7 Ways To Inspire Your Meditation Practice by Victoria Taylor Thu, 16 Feb 2017 21:16:11 +0000 http://localhost/wordpress5/?p=1313#comment-12029 Hi Kathleen,

I’m so glad I read this piece as every suggestion is spot on and very helpful. In fact, most of your suggestions can be used in just about any practice in your life. My favorite was the “pull” suggestion. It works very well for me when I find an inner yearning and focus on that to pull me toward my practice.
Thank you for sharing and looking forward to reading more.
