Yoga gaining popularity
Yoga is now seemed to be accepted by a majority of people. One could feel the difference with the presence of more than 10,000 persons at the ongoing yoga camp being conducted by Swami Ram Dev. Various institutions like the Art of Living, the Bhartiya Yog Sansthan, schools and private yoga trainers have been demonstrating yoga to people.
A very brilliant doctor told me that if doing asanas and pranayama a diabetic patient is reducing the calories in his body and also controlling his diet, what he is doing is effectively what doctors prescribe.
It is not a cure of diabetes but control only, he says. It appeals to me.
Two things happen in this claimed yogic cure, explained the doctor. The first was leaving their sedentary lives Indian middle classes and upper classes are known for, they have been doing some exercises, whether it is physical or yogic. That is good for health.
The second factor is that even in the case of doctors, when a patient has faith in a doctor twenty five percent cure is fast and is psychomatic. In the case of a yogi also the psychosomatic cure can be fast but not the physical part of it as , he says, diabetes and blood pressure are incurable.
so many of us have witnessed in our lives saints curing some diseases with their spiritual powers. But such cases are rarest and happen only when the saint decides to do it. This is the case of spiritual power when the blessings etc. of the saint work. He even touches the patient. Here something like pranic healing comes into play.
Yoga is always excellent.It cannot fail totally is well known. But yoga curing heart ailments avoiding angioplasty, or even open heart surgery is unknown so far. It appears to be a very tall claim. So it is in the case of cancer. Wait, watch, verify the truth before accepting it or rejecting is the correct line.
