Exorcising Yoga

A top Vatican priest has denounced the ancient Indian physical and spiritual discipline of yoga as “ devil’s work.”

Vatican’s 85-year-old chief exorcist Gabriel Amorth told a film festival in Terni, Italy: “Practicing yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter…. Both seem innocuous but they deal with magic and that leads to evil.”

The priest who has reportedly conducted 70,000 exorcisms over 25 years, said: “Yoga is the devil’s work. You think you are doing it to stretch your mind and body. But it leads to oriental religions based on the false belief of reincarnation.”
