The goal of classical yoga is Kaivalyam or liberation. This is a state of cessation of mental activities brought about by practice of supreme renunciation. Such a liberated Yogi is called Jivan-Mukta, which means “liberated yet alive”. A glorious form of the living dead! Perhaps it is just not a coincidence that the words Zombie and Yogi rhyme!
Tens of millions of people all over the world now practice Yoga and this number is growing real fast. What if the world is run over by millions of Jivan-muktas? Can you imagine the Yogi Apocalypse we will face?
