 24pct Americans Feel Yoga is Good in the Spiritual Journey
Roughly 24 percent American adults believe in reincarnation and a similar number believe in yoga as a spiritual practice, according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion and Public Life.

This poll also found out that roughly one-quarter of adults express belief in tenets of certain Eastern religions and 25 percent profess belief in astrology (that the position of the stars and planets can affect people's lives).

The poll finds that large numbers of Americans engage in multiple religious practices, mixing elements of diverse traditions.

Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, welcoming the Forum findings, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that community was glad that rich philosophical thought of Hinduism was being recognized and accepted widely outside the Hindu circles also.
