CATHOLIC ASHRAMS
OCTOBER 2005

http://ephesians-511.net/docs/CATHOLIC_ASHRAMS.doc

Actually in every press interview he groups charismatics along with Protestants because he finds that only they are the leading Indian Catholics activists against yoga. “Charismatics” are his enemy no. 1.
I am making a report for my web site now. That is all I can do.
The yoga centres of this yogi priest are located inside the very church and parish premises in the Archdiocese of Bombay (Mumbai) and other dioceses all across India. Through his NGOs he has amassed a lot of wealth and power as well as political connections. He exercises control over the bishops and has a following among ordinary Catholics as well as the Church hierarchy.
He has been honoured and felicitated by the Church at public functions.
Many of the Bishops in our Church today either practise yoga themselves or turn a blind eye to it being taught in Catholic institutions if they are themselves not involved in its propagation.
I have had exchanges of correspondence with this “priest”. My last exchange of letters with him is reproduced further below.
I have also written about his “Iyengar yoga” and also his leadership in the very New Age “Christian Meditation” of Dom Main and Dom Freeman (of the World Community for Christian Meditation or WCCM) which again is promoted by the Archdiocese of Bombay.
All this means that this “priest” has had the blessing of successive Bombay Cardinals who have been candidates in at least the two recent papal elections.
God save our Church from these diabolic agents of Hinduisation.
Michael

TWISTS OF FAITH

In Mumbai, a Catholic priest-yogi attacks Western propaganda against yoga

Father Joseph Pereira, who teaches Iyengar yoga around the world, believes its opponents are extremist ‘God addicts’.

http://scroll.in/article/718719/In-Mumbai,-a-Catholic-priest-yogi-attacks-Western-propaganda-against-yoga

By Aarefa Johari, April 7, 2015

 

 

Is yoga incompatible with Christianity? Conservative Christians in Europe and the US have been posing this question with growing fervour [1]
in the past few months, accusing India’s biggest export to the West of propagating Hinduism and leading Christians down the path of evil.
The controversy was in the news again last week, when an appeals court in California 
ruled [2] that yoga is secular, “devoid of religious or mystical trappings” and can be taught in schools without violating students’ religious freedoms. The ruling was in response to a 2013 lawsuit filed by worried Christian parents of Encinitas town, who claimed that yoga classes introduced in a local elementary school were promoting Hinduism and Buddhism amongst their children.
But an Indian Catholic priest from Mumbai has a thing or two to say to the Christian groups in the West whipping up fears against yoga in the West.
Joseph Pereira, a Catholic clergyman and proponent of Iyengar yoga, wears both his hats with perfect ease as he teaches yoga around the world. He studied the practice directly from BKS Iyengar, the legendary founder of Iyengar yoga, and his students include everyone from Christian priests to Singapore’s first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew. Through his 34-year-old organisation Kripa Foundation, he uses yoga to rehabilitate people with alcohol addiction problems.

Anti-yoga propaganda, says Pereira, is the work of a specific lobby of fundamentalist, “born-again” Christians who he describes as “God addicts”. This may sound strange coming from a Catholic priest, but Father Joe – as most people know him – has chosen his words for a reason.

Opium for the masses
“Jesus, for me, is the supreme yogi, because he spoke about being one with God,” said Pereira, who emphasises that Iyengar yoga transcends all ideologies and philosophies with its ability to unite people. Just this year, Pereira published a book called Yoga for the Practice of Christian Meditation, connecting the practice of various yoga asanas to teachings from the Bible.

 

 


The Catholic church, he says, has actually been open to the idea of opening up to practices like yoga since the Second Vatican Council of 1962, when the church issued two documents – one about the church in the modern world and the other on its relationship with non-Christian religions.
“In both documents, we have been encouraged to imbibe spirituality from world religions,” said Pereira. It is in this spirit that Bede Griffith, a British Benedictine monk living in India, began to promote Hindu-Christian dialogue, wrote a Christian reading of the Bhagwad Gita and came to be called a yogi.
“How many people in the West know about all of this?” said Pereira. The anti-yoga propagandists, he said, not only fail to see the spiritual aspects of yoga, they also fail to delve deeper into the meaning of their own religion.
“So many people who come to church every day are lost in religion – they make a fetish out of their idea of God but don’t know what it really means,” said Pereira. “Marx was right when he said that religion can be like opium for people.”
Christian denominations like the Pentecostals, the Southern Baptist churches in the US and various television evangelists – the groups that routinely oppose the practice of yoga – are highly fundamentalist “God addicts” who Pereira likens to the Hindutva Bajrang Dal or the Islamist Al-Qaeda. “All these groups preach the prosperity gospel – the idea that if you follow the gospel, you will prosper,” said Pereira. “They are only in it for the money and power.”

Acrobatics versus yoga
To Pereira, yogic spirituality is primarily about healthy living, and he plans to promote the idea this year on June 23, which Kripa Foundation will mark as an International Yoga for Addiction Recovery Day. Representatives from de-addiction centres from at least 25 countries will participate, including the US.
Pereira emphasises, however, that it is mainly Iyengar yoga that he chooses to defend from opposition in the West. “All kinds of yoga are being popularised in Western countries these days, and some of them do present yoga through a Hindu religious lens,” he said. “Most, however, have just reduced yoga to acrobatics. But yoga is not just a work out – it is a work in.”

Thanks Michael,

You may need some restorative Iyengar Yoga postures to reverse this heart condition and not to get a recurrence.

Do let me know when you are in Bombay.

All the best. Let’s always think kindly of one another … all else dogmas and creeds end with LOVE.

Have a compassionate Christmas and Advent of course

Subject: Re: FROM THIS MINISTRY: MY HEART BYPASS SURGERY/LATEST REPORTS AND UPDATES

Dear Fr. Joe Pereira,

I thank you for your kind letter of concern about my physical health in response to my update. I note that the solution that you offer me for my recovery is Iyengar yoga.

Even if yoga came with a certification of a new heart, the alternative of which was imminent, sudden death, I wouldn’t endanger the salvation of my eternal soul — as others do by their complicity or silence — by touching yoga with a ten-foot barge pole. I would rather die.

With regards,

Michael

 

On a couple of earlier occasions, I have challenged the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India as well as the Cardinal and Bishops of Bombay Archdiocese to bring out a white paper on yoga.

There are two groups arraigned against each other in this spiritual battle (this is spiritual warfare because yoga is NOT a regimen of physical exercises: Rome doesn’t concern itself with mundane issues but with matters concerning the spiritual welfare of Catholics; hence Her two Documents mentioning yoga.)

There are the yogi-“priests” and their Bishops on the one hand. On the other are exorcist-priests and bishops and other eminent Catholic authors and ministries.

Both camps cannot be correct. One of them has to be very, very wrong. I am in the latter group.

If yoga is aspiritual, then let the Indian Church say so, and I will accept the verdict even though it will come from a coterie of Bishops who are completely compromised by their role in the Hinduisation of the liturgy, etc.

A group of Mumbai lawyers have been exposing financial and property scam after scam in the Archdiocese of Bombay for the past few years. This is the archdiocese that promoted the heretical New Community Bible that had to be withdrawn for the revision of its commentaries after protests from Catholics as well as Hindus.

How can one expect Catholic orthodoxy and orthopraxis from them?

 

 

 

 

 

Fr. Joseph Pereira has truly “twisted the faith”, to use the words at the top of the web page that carried his story.

His blaming opposition to yoga on “born again” Christians is only partly true. Even many “normal” Christians abhor yoga. (I, for one, am Catholic by birth, and I am a leading opponent of Hindu yoga for Catholics.)

He normally includes a vicious attack on “charismatics” as I have recorded in my reports on his activities. But there are charismatic ministries like that of Fr. Anil Dev IMS who promote yoga and OM chanting at their Matridham Ashram in Varanasi.

 




 

On page 2, we see Fr. Joseph Pereira lighting a unique “Indian” traditional lamp for his guru Iyengar.

Hindus consider this design as a phallic symbol http://www.quora.com/What-is-the-origin-of-Shiv-linga-worship.

Yoga guru Iyengar is attired in saffron and sports Hindu symbols on his forehead and clothes. Pereira insists on retaining the suffix “Father” to his name, but is not wearing the attire or symbols of a Catholic priest.

This is something that I keep repeating. Most of our priests Hinduise the liturgy and everything else about the Church but switch to western mode as soon as they exit the church building.

I strongly object to his performing in the padmasana posture of yoga while wearing a clerical collar; the Cardinal Archbishop of Bombay should discipline him for this, unless of course Fr. Pereira has his blessing to promote yoga in his capacity as a priest.

 

Jesus did not claim “being one with God” as stated by Fr. Pereira. He is God.

 

“Jesus the Supreme yogi”? Jesus is no yogi. A yogi who is one who practices the spiritual discipline of yoga and achieves the state of moksha/samsara/liberation/enlightenment, yug or union with the Absolute or Supreme Being that is god. The Buddha achieved “enlightenment” by withdrawal from the world and doing meditation.

Jesus did not practice yoga or achieve enlightenment. He is the Enlightened One. As the Son of God, he became man and gave his life so that men, including those who sought an impossible union with God (through ‘works’ like yoga) could become children of God and heirs of the kingdom of God.

 

Like all New Agers, Fr. Pereira has a very serious problem with “religion” and promotes the New Age alternative which is “spirituality”, “yogic spirituality” to quote him.

 

He appeals to Fr. Bede Griffiths OSB, the Benedictine priest who made Saccidananda Ashram, Shantivanam, in Tamil Nadu internationally famous. Leading western New Agers lived and wrote their theses as guests of Bede Griffiths. The Ashram is a centre of New Age, syncretism and heresy. See CATHOLIC ASHRAMS

http://ephesians-511.net/docs/CATHOLIC_ASHRAMS.doc.

 

His broad generalization that all who belong to certain Christian denominations as well as televangelists preach a prosperity gospel and little else is condemnable.

 

To quote from the article, “The Catholic church, he says, has actually been open to the idea of opening up to practices like yoga since the Second Vatican Council of 1962, when the church issued two documents – one about the church in the modern world and the other on its relationship with non-Christian religions.
“In both documents, we have been encouraged to imbibe spirituality from world religions,” said Pereira.

 

 

 

 

Fr. Pereira reads into those documents (Gaudium et Spes, 1965; Nostra Aetate, 1965) what he wants to see, to justify his dalliance with yoga. I have analysed this issue threadbare in earlier reports. The Church does not exactly say what he claims it says in those Documents but the inculturationists and Hinduisers extrapolate the meaning of a couple of sentences in each of them to serve their ends .

One wonders why he displays ignorance of two other Roman Documents (Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on Some Aspects of Christian Meditation, 1989; Jesus Christ the Bearer of the Water of Life, a Christian Reflection on the New Age, 2003) in which yogic meditation and yogic spirituality are specifically warned against.

 

He accuses others of “presenting yoga through a Hindu religious lens” but his “Iyengar” brand is no different as my reports have revealed. His guru, the late BKS Iyengar was a Brahmin who was steeped in Hindu philosophy and his yoga techniques are through and through Hindu.

 

My comments on the two external links in the article by Aarefa Johari:

[1]
http://scroll.in/article/717004/Catholic-priests-in-the-West-are-stirring-up-an-epidemic-of-yogaphobia

Fr. Pereira refers to the Southern Baptists and the televangelists cited by the author but conveniently ignores the warning of chief exorcist of the Diocese of Rome that “yoga is satanic and ‘leads to evil’,” as well as the two other Catholic priests cited, Fr. Padraig O’Baoill and Fr. Roland Colhoun.

Fr. Colhoun interpreted Pope Francis’ words in his January 9, 2015 homily this way: “Pope Francis said “do not seek spiritual answers in yoga classes.” Yoga is certainly a risk. There’s the spiritual health risk. When you take up those practices from other cultures, which are outside our Christian domain, you don’t know what you are opening yourself up to. The “bad spirit,” he added, could be caught in all sorts of ways:
I’m not saying everyone gets it, or that it happens every time, and people may well be doing yoga harmlessly, but there’s always a risk and that’s why the Pope mentioned it and that’s why we talk about that in terms of the danger of the new age movement and the danger of the occult today. That’s the fear.

Like the two priests, there are hundreds of other priests, dioceses and theological commissions that condemn yoga for Catholics, and their verdicts may be read in my many compilations and reports on yoga.

 

[2]
http://articles.economictimes.indiatimes.com/2015-04-04/news/60811401_1_yoga-classes-ashtanga-yoga-lower-court-ruling

Fr. Pereira gives credibility to a secular U.S. court’s ruling that yoga does not endorse Hinduism.

As a Catholic priest, Fr. Pereira should be aware that for Catholics, the teaching of the magisterium of the Church is the final and ultimate word on issues of morality and faith such as meditation and yoga.

There are 50 states in the U.S. and around 195 independent nations in the world. The courts and senates and parliaments of different states and nations have a great disparity in their laws on abortion, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, contraception, etc. That is because they have no absolute authority and no teaching office as Catholics have in our Bible and our Magisterium. Their decisions and rulings are subjective and change from time to time depending on popular opinion, political pressure, economic exigencies, or simply on who is in power at that juncture in history. The restrictions on abortion for instance are not uniform across the USA and vary from state to state. Some states hold that a fetus is a human being only after 24 weeks and so an unborn child of less than 24 weeks may be legally aborted. Each state has its own opinion on the “viability” of life outside the womb, and so on. In fact, there is now hope that the infamous 1973 “Roe vs. Wade” act will one day be overturned.

Till the 1930 Lambeth Conference, all Christian denominations held that contraception was evil and sinful. Today almost every Protestant church permits the use of contraceptives. The Catholic Church doesn’t. Its teaching has, is, and always will be the same despite the progressives and liberals who want it changed.

Fr. Pereira is clinging to straws when he gives weightage to what a group of men and women decide in San Diego USA, and not what two Vatican Documents say to the Universal Church.

 

With the backing of the Archdiocese of Bombay (see my reports), Fr. Pereira promotes the New Age and Buddhist mantra-based Christian Meditationof
Fr. John Main
and Fr. Laurence Freeman
of the
World Community for Christian Meditation
or
WCCM (titles and links on page 1). This meditation is highly compatible with Iyengar yoga.

I am fairly certain that his proposed “International Yoga for Addiction Recovery Day” on June 23 will have the full support, encouragement and aid of the Archdiocese of Bombay.
