Numerous who are called Hindus today accept the 'ism' and the term Hindu was forced upon them by the Greek, Mughal and Colonial raiders to place them in a container they could appreciate, as grasping the variety of this land was inconceivable for their little restricted personalities.
The current day Hindus themselves accept their foundations are somewhere down in the Sanatana Dharma reasoning, an endless lifestyle that advanced/is developing, is alive and is the aftereffect of broad examination, reflection and acknowledgment into the idea of mankind and their connection to the heavenly, with numerous ways and developments stretching out from this investigation, of which Yoga is one. There was never wanted to give this a restricting name of an ism. This framework acknowledges even skepticism as a way of thinking and they are allowed to embrace, invalidate and challenge conviction frameworks of researchers.
This is verification of an illuminated otherworldly convention not a pardon for showcasing Yoga as not a religion and giving instances of skeptics rehearsing yoga to attract understudies.
Along these lines, to comprehend that Yoga isn't a religion you need to yourself be acknowledged to that degree. In any case, to pointlessly mouth yoga isn't a religion and that one can keep being a Christian or Muslim or Jew while rehearsing Yoga is offending the all inclusiveness of yoga and in expansion, the religion currently called Hinduism of which it is a section.
So truly, in the event that you think Hinduism is a religion, at that point Yoga is Hindu. Yet, on the off chance that you have broken the shackles of religion, in the entirety of its restrictions, at that point yoga as well as all the ways that have emerged from this profound intelligent way of thinking are not religion but rather an encouragement to investigate and figure it out.
