A creature who responds to the name of Meera Nanda has written this piece about origins of Yoga. The editor of Open magazine must have been snorting something powerful to have agreed to publish this kind of drivel. I have lost all respect for the Open magazine, which now seems to be another version of the missionary-marxist hogwash against Hindus that infests India’s English media.
As for Meera Nanda, she has clearly smelled an opportunity to sell herself in the American flesh market and insert herself into the Western seminar circuit. These kind of profiteering, unscrupulous “Resident Non-Indians” will keep throwing muck on Hindu traditions until Hindus themselves remain passive spectators, pretending that they are too busy with day-to-day matters to bother about these things.
The same thing used to be done to the Jews in America till they started filing court cases against Christian fundamentalists for defamation. We need a Hindu organisation which sue these writers. They will be cured in a minute, like that charlatan MF Hussain was forced to flee India after dozens of cases were filed against him by the Hindus.
One thing Indians have to understand is that these so-called leftist-liberals with Hindu names are nothing but a fifth column of Anglo-Americans in India. The Whites are their real patrons, and the leftist-liberals contest the Hindus in India on their and their church’s behalf . In short, the Indian leftists are collaborators.
The Christian link is apparent in this hit-peice — Editor of Open magazine is a Christian and this lady Meera Nanda regularly visits a Christian fundamentalist college in the US. Here is a comment on Open magazine website under this story:
Apparently this author visits a CHRISTIAN college in US called “Trinity College” whose motto is “For the Church and For the Nation” along with many other Christians..
This CHRISTIAN College in US organizes many programmes related to religion..
Info on the Christian College’s site about her participation :- http://www.trincoll.edu/Academics/AcademicResources/values/ISSSC/events/
And info about this very CHRISTIAN college :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_College,_Hartford
It is very obvious that Christian are scared of Indian Culture and Religion, hence is using these agents to separate Yoga and its VERY HINDU roots..
Their agenda is to take away the credit from Hindu society…
People.. please boycott this Magazine and other agents of Christian Nations who are working against the interest of Hindus..
BOYCOTT this ANTI Hindu Magazine..
Boycott Meera Nanda..
