Spiritual Humor


A young woman who was worried about her habit of biting her fingernails down to the quick was advised by a friend to take up yoga. She did, and soon her fingernails were growing normally.

A little girl asked her mother: – How did the human race appear? The mother answered, – God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so was all mankind made.  Two days later the girl asked her father the same question. The father answered: – Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved. The confused girl returned to her mother and said: – Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys? The mother answered: – Well, dear, it is very simple: I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his.

  1. Thanks for the laughs. Those are funny! I love this one:
    “Disciple: Oh wise and all knowing one, take me to the realm of perfect peace.
    Master: If I take you to that realm, it will no longer be peaceful.”


    1. Thanks for the feedback. My favorite is perhaps the one about open mindedness. 😀 I have always appreciated the yogis (of some “lineages” at the least) encouraging for jokes and laughing at them/ourselves. Laughter liberates.
