Abraham Lincoln Really A Yogi?

SAN JOSE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A meditation teacher has a claim that’s a real stretch: Abraham Lincoln was actually a yogi.

Richard Salva has studied the life – and past lives – of Honest Abe and says there’s compelling evidence suggesting the president was a yogi who practiced the teaching of yoga and meditation even when he was busy writing the Gettysburg Address.

For instance, he claims that Lincoln described himself as “a mystic” and never officially joined a church, which was rare for his time.

Salva also says that like many yogis, Lincoln had tremendous strength and was even able to carry a 600-pound chicken coop.

Not only that but while the “Great Emancipator” supposedly suffered from narcolepsy, Salva says it was actually a form of “spontaneous meditation” that allowed him access “higher spheres.”

But while Salva is convinced that Lincoln was a Himalayan yogi in his previous life, he says his assassination was not a case of bad karma with John Wilkes Booth, but part of a “national karma” suffered by the United States.
