In times when it seems we may have heard everything there is to hear about yoga, Swami Isa always provides surprises. His Holiness began the International Day of Yoga, celebrated annually on June 21, by sharing this message:
“Body, mind, intellect and pranic purification leads to genetic sublimation. Reaching Consciousness, peace and happiness through sublimation is called yoga.”
Few seekers would realise that yoga has any effect upon their genes. Much less, genetic sublimation. But yoga is the process of sublimation of all matter into the unity with Consciousness.
Swami Isa’s choice of words reference his recent teachings and publications about the COVID-19 pandemic, which he has been warning is the result of a genetically modified virus.
