I’m currently moving, but I had a silly thought that I figured I’d share in lieu of blogging something of any actual significance.
Here’s the thought:
If some Christians believe that we can apparently have Christian Yoga without any problems (i.e. some people think we can just remove the “bad stuff” and Christianize an inherently Hindu spiritual practice), would it be right to suspect that those same Christians would be all right with Bhakti Communion?
Would it be all right for Hindus to take a Christian communion service, with bread and wine/grape juice and the little trays and “do this in remembrance of me” and everything, and simply do it in a Hindu temple without any mention of Christ, placing a wafer and some wine/grape juice in front of idols of Ganesh or Vishnu so that they can partake too? How do you think the Hindus in that temple would feel, knowing that they’ve simply ripped off a thoroughly Christian practice and tried to Hinduize it?
Just a sleepy thought from a sleepy minded fella who’s working by day and moving by night…but sadly without any super powers.
Until Next Time,

Oh, and by “Vedic” I mean “Christian” and by “Monk” I mean “Pastor”
