Father Gabrael Amorth was the Chief exorcist of the Vatican till a few years back. the revered father has now retired but has come out witha bizzarre statement. On the face, of the statement of father Gabrael Amorth is perverse and has stirred ahornets nest.
It appears father Amorth carried out a study of the Hindu scriptures and vedic books for years. He also studied all aspects of Yoga and its manifestations. After years of studies father Amorth concluded that Yoga had elements of Satanism in it as it was closely entwined with the Hindu religion. He further added as re-incarnationwas a satanic belief it was propagated through Yoga and in essence wasa Hindu thought. He announced that the concept of reincarnation and transmigration of the soul is a satanic belief and as such Yoga needs to be banned.
The matter would hav eperhaps died down
Yoga is indeed closely allied to teh Hindu religion, but it is also a simple exercise system that is practiced all over the world. It does not however preach anything like transmigration of the soul and reincarnation. In any case these belifs are not satanic in nature. This just shows that some men create hurdles in teh religious world for no purpose at all. Gather Gabrael Amorth's statement needs to be dismissed as hoig wash.
