Jesus the Yogi and the Dancing Jesus

Jesus the Yogi and the Dancing Jesus

 

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, apart from being projected as the Catholic equivalent of the Hindu “OM”, is increasingly being depicted either as a yogi or as a dancer in the likeness of Nataraja, the “Lord of the Dance”. This is only one facet of the rampant Hinduisation of the Catholic Church in India.

Jesus, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity is not a yogi; He is the Enlightened One. A yogi is one who achieves moksha or liberation from the material world through the Hindu system of yogic meditation and attains enlightenment or self-realisation when he merges into the impersonal consciousness of the universe that some call god, and is able to declare (aham brahmasmi) that he is now a divine being in union with this god. It is blasphemous to describe Jesus as a yogi which many priests are doing, and equally blasphemous to substitute His crucified image with an idol of a dancer, Nataraja being an aspect of the Hindu deity Shiva.

and also note that the crucified Jesus is being replaced with either a “resurrexifix” (the oxymoron of the risen Christ superimposed on a Cross), or by a “risen Christ” with NO cross at all on the main altars of churches.

Since Vatican Council II, all sorts of grotesque crucifixes have been surfacing all over the world at the expense of the traditional crucifix:

The flyer below reads: Roman Rite Liturgy of the Eucharist with religious cultural adaptations of India approved by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India. DIVYA YAGAM Indian Order of Eucharistic celebration St. Ann Church (corner De Grassi St. and Gerard St. East) Presider: Fr Thomas D’Sa Director of the
National Biblical Catechetical Liturgical Centre (NBCLC) of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI)
Bangalore, India.

 

The flyer sports a yogic Jesus as well as a “resurrected Christ” in a sort of dancing pose.

 

 

 


 

Page 1608 of the “contextualized” 2008
heretical
St Pauls New Community Bible
(NCB)
has an illustration of a “dancing”, “crucified” but cross-less Jesus provided by
Fr. Christopher Coelho OFM
. According to the information provided, it is supposed to illustrate “The Lord, your God, is in your midst … he will dance with songs of joy for you, as one does on a day of festival“, Zephaniah 3:17.

 


 

Fr. Christopher Coelho OFM’s “dancing”, crucified cross-less Jesus bears an uncanny and undeniable resemblance to depictions of the Hindu deity Nataraja, the “Lord of the dance“:

 




 

 

The
NCB’s dancing, crucified but cross-less Jesus
is not a one off thing. Here below left, is a similar illustration of “Jesus” from the CBCI‘s
National Biblical, Catechetical and Liturgical Centre
(NBCLC)’s
“God With Us” series of catechism books for children
, 1977 to 1981, with the Imprimatur of the then Archbishop Chairman of the CBCI Commission for Catechetics. To the right is presently ex-priest Fr. Francis Barboza SVD
performing the Hindu temple dance Bharatanatyam
in the
Nataraja
posture.

Christ in a Quilon, Kerala “church” that has NO ALTAR and NO CRUCIFIX. Through the hand mudra Jesus conveys that he has achieved enlightenment.

Indian Christ worshipped in Kerala temple!

EXTRACT

Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, January 29, 2007

Eclipsing the conventional crucifix, Christ is sculpted in a sitting posture. He meditates in Abhayamudra under the shadow of a peepul tree.

The church/temple named Jagat Jyoti Mandir (House of the Light of the Universe), inaugurated by Kollam bishop Stanley Roman on Friday, is supposed to be a place of exchange for religions.

On Friday, the bishop celebrated the mass sitting on the floor.

The structure, with a tall stone lamp in front of it, could easily be mistaken for a Hindu temple but for the cross on top of it.

There isn’t even a crucifix behind what should have been the altar.
Christ is represented as seated in padmasana like the Buddha under the Bodhi tree.

 

WAS JESUS A YOGI? SYNCRETISM AND INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE-ERROL FERNANDES

At the Sadhana Institute in Lonavla, Pune, founded by Fr. Anthony de Mello SJ whose writings were banned by the Vatican

 


In the Institute’s “chapel”, the “altar” is erected only for an Indian rite squatting Mass and there is no crucifix anywhere in sight.

There is no provision for going on one’s knees so one must be having to squat right through the “Mass”.

The “Indian” Jesus, but naturally, is in a meditative position. Indian, they say. I say Hindu. Or Buddhist.

The occult yin-yang symbol (Chinese philosophy and Taoism) is everywhere, even on every seat cushion inside the “chapel”. Source of images: sadhanainstitute.org
