Category Archives: YOGA and ME


My comment about YOGA.
I am sorry I have to be medical again.
People are not bone equal and some people are different.
I am one of them.
I have a straight back which never bend backward or forward to injustice.
It is a very bad trait in this part of the world.
Yoga is an injustice to my body and my back.
When I was kid (then I was very clear about myself) I tried to sit like Lord Buddha with legs strapped in front like a serpent.
Buddha was in this posture, so the story says, when a cobra hooded itself and sheltering Buddha from rain and probably as a friendly gestureĀ  Buddha imitated the cobra twist..
It was a pretty good act.
I am not a snake (their vertebrae can slide or subluxate after a heavy meal) and I could never do that posture and never wanted to try YOGA in that reptilian posture.
All YOGA GURUs think we descend from snakes (evolutionary may be) and want us to be snakes like without any charm.
This is where I agree with your comment..
Going bit further one can be in any posture while doing moment meditation and fact that you are not an acrobat in reptilian posture should not deter you trying meditation.
YOGA is a true distraction to MEDITATION and that is my view.
One’s leg muscles need free flow of blood and if not one gets Venous Thrombosis which can kill you like the Australian kid who died playing more than 24 hours of Video games.
One can do meditation while walking, that means one is catching two birds (not hitting, those poor guys) with one stone.
Indian traditions however die-hard even in the 21st century.
Let them perfect the YOGA and market it and not me.
By the way I was a very good athlete and a sportsman, in bygone years.
Either one takes up YOGA or do sports and enjoy.
I wonder whether the guys/girls doing YOGA enjoy it or is it a daily dose of routine.
Is it better than a cup of tea in the morning?
I wonder?
