CONVERSIONS TO ORTHODOXY

Το θαύμα της μεταστροφής μου:

Πώς πέρασα από την πλάνη της Yoga στην Ορθοδοξία!

Στα 22 μου χρόνια άρχισε η πνευματική μου αναζήτηση. Μεγαλωμένη σε θρησκευτική οικογένεια και σηκώνοντας έναν προσωπικό σταυρό βρήκα μία φαινομενική διέξοδο στη yoga. Μόδα, γυμναστική, ευεξία…

Ένα δελεαστικό πακέτο πολύ καλά τυλιγμένο με φανταχτερά χρώματα. Με τράβηξε σαν μαγνήτης και χωρίς να έχω πλήρη έλεγχο της ζωής μου βρέθηκα να διδάσκω yoga. Ξεκίνησε η πλάνη πως οδεύω στον σωστό δρόμο που από μικρή πίστευα και ήθελα, στον ένα και μοναδικό τριαδικό Θεό. Άρχισα να ψάχνω απαντήσεις, να γνωρίζω πλανημένους ανθρώπους προσπαθώντας να γεμίζω τα κενά που όλο και μεγάλωναν. Καμία απάντηση και η πλάνη μεγάλωνε…

Ακολούθησε ταξίδι στην Ινδία ζώντας την απόλυτη “ύπνωση” και το ρέικι μπήκε στην ζωή μου. Δεν μπορούσα να συνειδητοποιήσω τι είχε συμβεί. Ένας φύλακας άγγελος με βοήθησε να επιστρέψω στην Ελλάδα. Σταμάτησα για προσωπικούς λόγους τα πάντα και έφυγα εκτός Αθηνών.

Μέχρι που ήρθε ένα βιβλίο στα χέρια μου: “Οι γκουρού, ο νέος και ο Γέροντας Παΐσιος”.

Το διάβασα σε μία μέρα και πήρα όλες τις απαντήσεις. Ένιωσα ότι κοιμόμουν και ξαφνικά ξύπνησα. Ξεκαθάρισαν όλα στο μυαλό μου συνειδητοποιώντας πως:

Δεν είναι απλά μία αίρεση η yoga και όλα τα εναλλακτικά που κυκλοφορούν. Είναι δαιμόνια που τους ανοίγεις την πόρτα και σου καταστρέφουν την ζωή.

Φόρεσα τον σταυρό μου, άρχισα να προσεύχομαι και να πηγαίνω στην εκκλησία, να κάνω μετάνοιες, να εξομολογούμαι και μετά από έναν πολύ δύσκολο πνευματικό πόλεμο βρέθηκα στα χέρια του Θεού αφήνοντας όλη μου την ζωή σ’ Εκείνον.

Ο Άγιος Παΐσιος έκανε το θαύμα του και με βοήθησε να αναγεννηθώ από τις στάχτες μου.

Σήμερα στα 31 μου χρόνια προσπαθώ να δίνω τον πνευματικό μου αγώνα με την βοήθεια του Θεού ακολουθώντας πιστά μία από τις συμβουλές του πνευματικού μου:

“Ακούμπησε την ζωή σου στα χέρια του Θεού και της Παναγίας”.

Ελένη

ANTI HERETICAL MANUAL

The philosophy of yoga can be expressed as follows:

“Ashes are fire, ashes are water, ashes are earthy everything is ashes, mind, sight, and the other senses are ashes.” (Atharva Siras)

All things in life are transitory, and pain, suffering, and death lurk behind everything. All of life with its omnipresent suffering and death goes on and on in an eternal cycle (samsara or the reincarnation cycle) from which no one escapes. Life is an endless wandering through relentless and insurmountable suffering. The future holds only further rebirths, and whether one is inching towards a better life or sinking into worse life makes little difference.

For all life is ashes.

Hinduism in all its various forms is first of all an attempt: escape from this relentless cycle of rebirth. It is not death wish because the aim is to escape death as well as life. Hindus wish to escape from life with good reason – for life on the Indian subcontinent is hard. Sickness of every kind, famine due to drought or flood, war and oppression make life an unbearable succession of suffering and defeat. The religious faith of the hindus which grows out of their painful experience of life finds its foremost expression in the god Shiva and his consort Kali.

Fear of death

The various Hindu techniques for liberation are attempts to be free of both life and death. Even those who fail to reach the ultimate goal can at least reduce their involvement with life. This is the aim of yoga. By practicing yoga one can reduce suffering and defer death by reducing or completely halting the normal life

An important text of hatha yoga expresses it this way

92. As long as prana is held in the body, so long consciousness (cittam) (is) free from disease. What cause is there for fear of death so long as the sight (resins fixed) between the eyebrows’

93. Therefore, from the fear of death, Brahma (is) intent on pranayama, as are also Yogis and sages. Therefore, one should restrain the prana.” (Gozaksa Sataka)

As expressed in this text the source of yoga is the fear of death, and the way to avert death is to hold back breathing. The same hatha yoga techniques will hold back and immobilize other life functions.

Hatha Yoga Techniques

Hatha yoga breathing exercises (pranayama) are not intended to lead to better breathing, but to the reduction or complete cessation of breathing! In the same way hatha yoga body postures (asanas) are intended to immobilize the whole body. Practicing them will enable the body to become completely motionless and hardened in fixed positions. Meditation words (mantras) serve to immobilize the consciousness. Mantras are usually the names of gods used for worship. Symbolic body movements (mudras and Continue reading “What Yoga Really Is – Johannes Aagaard Aarhus University, Danmark”

Are you Christian? Forget about doing Yoga! – The Church would like people to replace Yoga with Prayer

EASTERN ORTHODOX CHURCH

Are you Christian? Forget about doing Yoga!

The Church would like people to replace Yoga with Prayer

The Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox Church reacted to the UN’s decision to designate June 21 as International Day of Yoga in 2014. The Holy Synod’s statement says that the practice of yoga has “no place in the lives of Christians” since it is a fundamental aspect of Hinduism and as such is not considered a “form of exercise” but of worship!

Though praised for its calming effect and wellness, Christians are urged to seek the same comfort in God – not hindu practises. After all, the postures of yoga were created as adulation to 330 million Hindu gods. The postures are viewed in the Hindu faith as offerings to gods that in Christianity are considered to be idols.

Furthermore, a third of yoga is concerned with emptying the mind – a contradiction to what Christianity teaches. In the Christian faith, there is free choice and transformation through renewal. Furthermore, astral travel that yoga guides people into is a practise that the church continues to frown upon.

“For this reason, yoga is totally incompatible with our Christian Orthodox faith and it has no place in the life of Christians,” the statement said, even though it added that the the Church respects religious freedom.
