Patanjali is a Tamil Siddhar. There are 18 Siddhars. Siddhar mean Man in prayer. His birth place is in TamilNadu, Southern India. His grave is in Rameshwaram, TamilNadu. His brilliance was swindled by Hindu Brahmins. And labeled and lied as explained above. He is not from heaven or anything. Just simple human like you and me. We Tamil consider Jesus as one of the 18 Siddhars. They are very close to Godly ways. Lot of Christians have asked me is it okay to do Yoga. It is good, just get rid of the Hindu way of lying about it. There is lots in the real raw yoga.the yoga now americans practice is not real. Let me know if you may want to know more.

I first was introduced to the book by Yogi Patanjali: How to know God in the very early 1970s. It was a treasure then and still is. I was new to yoga at the time and treasured every moment with it including the learning of deep meditation. Patanjali's instructions were perfect for me then and are now. Maybe we don't know who exactlly Patanjali is/was but I feel certain it's not Depak Chopra!

Jesus has not written any book. What he wrote once was in the dust.. He was a historical person . External and internal Evidences in the Bible, political records, history, results of excavations and researches maintain that Jesus lived, moved among people, crucified for his teachings, buried and resurrected, If he were a sham and the "teachings " were cooked up, could his disciples build up a religion so immediately (within 40 days of resurrection, challenging the most powerful Roman Government and the, influential, hostile Jewish leaders . Gospels were written in the 1st C itself. Jerusalem Temple was destroyed in AD 70 by the Romans and caused the Jewish and Christian diaspora. In this age of excavations and scientific studies a few people cannot fool the whole world. Jesus was not a legendary character. Legendary characters change over time, year over year, place to place, community to community, language to language. Records on Jesus remain the same.
