Here is a short film I wrote to illustrate this teaching. It was produced by the students of the Rocky Mountain Christian Filmmakers Camp, where I taught and coached the actors.
I was introduced to Rabi Maharaj, who used to be worshiped as a guru. Eventually he became disillusioned and gave his life to Jesus Christ. In his book Death of a Guru, Maharaj defines yoga:
Literally "yoking," it refers to union with Brahman... If one desires to achieve physical fitness only, exercises designed for that specific purpose ought rather to be chosen. No part of yoga can be separated from the philosophy behind it.In the documentary Gods of the New Age, Maharaj says, "There is no Hinduism without yoga and there is no yoga without Hinduism."
