Sample text

In addition to Hindu tantra, there were also Buddhist and Jain tantric systems. Looking closely at Buddhist tantra in India, Ronald Davidson (2002) suggests that socioeconomic developments in early medieval India strongly influenced the rise and shape of tantra. Davidson shows how socioeconomic and sociopolitical developments, including economic and patronage crises, a decline in women’s economic participation, and the establishment of large monastic orders, influenced the Buddhist tradition that would come to serve as the foundational religiosities upon which Buddhist cultures in China, Tibet, and Japan would build (2002).

This was a period of religious questioning in the United States in light of emergent modern historical and scientific analyses that challenged the dominant Christian orthodox ideas about the way the world was and why it was that way. Perhaps the most palpable example of modern challenges to religious orthodoxy was Darwin’s theory of evolution, which put into question orthodox Christian doctrine on creation and history. 3 Many socially and politically influential individuals and organizations used that standard to actively suppress what were deemed intolerable religious ideas and practices, including those of early modern yogis.

The Oxford University Indologist, Max Muller (1823–1900), for example, criticized: 30 Sel l ing Yo g a [the] tortures which some of them, who hardly deserve to be called Samnyasins, for they are not much better than jugglers or Hathayogins, inflict on themselves, the ascetic methods by which they try to subdue and annihilate their passions, and bring themselves to a state of extreme nervous exaltation accompanied by trances or fainting fits of long duration. 12 Another esteemed Oxford University Indologist, Monier Monier-Williams (1819–1899), shared Muller’s contempt for hatha yoga, describing it as “a strange compound of mental and bodily exercises, consisting [of] unnatural restraint, forced and painful postures, twisting and contortions of the limbs, suppression of the breath and utter absence of mind” (quoted in Love 2010: 73).
