Modified Yoga for Acceptance in all religious communities
Many of my Muslim brothers think that yoga is a Hindu term and it is prohibited for Muslims. As I know yoga is not a religion. It is a path to better mental, physical & emotional health. Namaz is also a combination of Asanas & meditation. Namaz is a religious duty of a Muslim. Yoga is not a substitute of Namaz. There is some problem for Muslims to do Yoga practices, like.chanting mantras...imagination of idols or God other than Allah...salute to sun during sun salutation...to bowing in front of guru's picture..etc. Muslim can do Yoga practices with few changes in ancient form of yoga. Yoga should be practices with faith because it is not only physical exercise but internal cleansing also. To develop faith towards the Yoga we need some changes in Yoga traditions, for acceptance in all religious communities because without faith we cannot gain the benefits of Yoga. It is greatness of many of Yoga gurus who understand the problem of other religious communities including Muslims allow few changes as per their faith .We are grateful to them. Yoga groups working abroad especially in Gulf using generalized form of yoga without mantras and idols.There are yoga centers in almost all Muslim countries and people practices yoga in almost all Muslim countries but without mantras and idols. So Celebrate the International Yoga Day in a secular way so that yoga lover of all communities can participate without hesitation.
