“Neither yoga nor yogi can save you, only Jesus can”: Christian pastor rants in front of Adiyogi statue, video goes viral

The pastor whose name according to reports is Jesapin adds, “Neither Yoga nor yogi can save you, only Jesus has spilled his blood for us, only he can save you.”

A video-clip, where a Christian pastor is seen shouting “neither yoga nor yogi can save you, only Jesus can” before the famous Adiyogi statue at the Isha Yoga Centre in Coimbatore, is being widely shared on the internet.

The pastor whose name according to reports is Jesapin adds, “Neither Yoga nor yogi can save you, only Jesus has spilled his blood for us, only he can save you.” He continued to rant for about 30 seconds and left while stunned onlookers tried to make sense.

Ironically, the symbols of all major religions including Islam and Christianity adorn the premises of the Isha Yoga Center, representing unity and harmony between all religions.

Talking to Opindia, Swami Tushya, Spokesperson of Isha Foundation said, “It’s not about who shouted what slogan at Adiyogi. What’s worrisome is that people who claim to be the torchbearers of secularism, liberty, and tolerance, are quiet. This incidence is a testimony of the all-inclusiveness that our glorious tradition stands for. Adiyogi stands for liberation and all-inclusiveness hence we don’t plan to make any complaint or take action against anybody.”

Isha Foundation, in adherence to its principles, may not take any action against the mischievous pastor, but this incident is not the first of its kind where Christian evangelists have brazenly insulted Hinduism. Evangelist Mohan Lazarus had in September 2018 called Hindu temples, “Satan’s strongholds”. Lazarus who owns Tamil television channel Sathiyam TV, is infamous for repeatedly insulting Hindus and Hinduism. He has, in the past, insulted spiritual leaders of the Kanchi mutt.

Christian evangelists in India openly attack Hindus by calling deities ‘false Gods’ but resort to questionable methods to convert people to their faith. These attacks are not restricted to India alone.

Earlier this year, Swaminarayan Temple was vandalized in the US state of Kentucky, where miscreants sprayed black paint on the deity and wrote ‘Jesus is the only God’ on the walls.

Time and again Christain organizations, evangelists and personalities have tried to demean other religions including Hinduism and Buddhism by calling them demonic and monstrous.

The pastor screaming freely within the Isha Yoga Centre is being criticized, and people are coming out to condemn his slurs.

Forced conversions are a menace and reality across India. Earlier we had reported about a steady rise in the conversions of Hindus in many districts of Uttar Pradesh.
