This is just my opinion. Bhakti is one of the higher forms of yoga but it will never sell in any form in North america. Look at Christian Yoga. All they have done is make everyone mad. Bible thumpers are upset because they think Christian Yogis are praying to the devil.
The Bible thumper Arguement: Do you know who you are praying to? The Bible thumpers know, but how can you know? See what I mean!!
At the same time some Hindu fundamentalists say there is no room for Christian concepts in yoga. They would rather make a Bible thumper an ally than see world peace. All Religious fundamentalism can unite against any form of Bhakti yoga. Because "universal peace and a loving God" talk threatens the religious leaders power.
Heres the deal: "How dare you think for yourself. You don't even know who you pray to." Scary isn't it! But it works. Keep the masses fearful and stupid. You can always count on extremists to create mass hysteria.
