Ghar Wapsi, Beef Ban & Church Attacks: Unraveling The Truth

Miscellaneous, Sadhguru
Source: Isha Foundation   In a comprehensive interview with the Economic Times newspaper, Sadhguru looks at the Hindu way of life in India today, Ghar Wapsi, and fringe elements of society attempting to hijack the national discourse. Q: You have emphasized many times that Hinduism is not an ‘ism’, in that it doesn’t represent any standard belief system…That the Hindu way of life is not an organized belief system but a science of salvation… Can you please elaborate? Sadhguru: Let us first define what is Hindu. This is the land that lies between the Himalayas and the Indian Ocean.

Do you think World Yoga Day may make someone from some other faith uneasy? Not at all. Yoga means union. It can only unite people. It is both a philosophy and a science. It is for people of any faith, or even no faith. If anything, the so-called staunch Hindus should be more worried about yoga getting popular because it is very scientific and goes against rituals.
