|Subject: yogus and cancer?|
|Ramakrishna was not a hatha yogi, actually he openly discouraged disciples who showed an interest in such practices, Vivekanada included. The physicians were of the opinion that his strong emotions in devotional ecstasies aggravated the illness as well as so much interaction with visitors and teaching them, but he dis not want to stop. Such strong experiences might harm the health, and health and long life was obviously not his goal but more spiritual ones, on all costs. Besides even great yogis die eventually (well unless we believe in personages like Babaji).
So for one yoga will improve our health, but not make us supermen in most cases at least, and than there is more to spirituality than good health and a long life. |
