To a friend who sent a long quotation from an Indian who had made a fortune running and eventually selling a string of hatha yoga centers. After selling them, she began notifying people of the “demonic evil” of yoga in any form, and raving on and on in the style of ignorant, fundamentalist “Christian” bigots about yoga and dharma.
You cannot reason with insanity, hatred and bigotry. Nor is there any value in refuting attacks based on them. Such people are, as Saint Jude said: “raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame” (Jude 13). As the great Master Yogananda used to say in relation to such people: “You go after God,” and leave them behind in the dark. Eventually they will come to the light, also.
