What is taught in World Religions classes in Ontario Catholic schools??
“In the Hinduism section of Unit 5 we focus on the Paths of Salvation also called the 4 types of yoga. Raja yoga specifically practicing hatha yoga (physical postures) for a week in the chapel (or even throughout the rest of the semester) is a fun and highly beneficial way to help students understand the concept of mind, body, spirit balance”
Wait a second… hindu yoga in chapel at Catholic schools?? And I thought yoga was just “stretching”!
Also this link about the Christ-Krishna!
“This site provides interesting information and history that can be used for lesson planning on world religions. What is even more interesting is the Christ-Krishna (both second persons of the Christian-Hindu trinity) linkage and similarities that will surely peak the interest of any scholar. The contents include introduction to Hinduism and Early History, and questions on whether and if there a Christ-Krishna linkage. It also lists the similarities between Krishna and Christ and queries whether details from Jesus’ life were copied from legends about Krishna. This site also features the origins of how and why Christian-Hindu conflicts began in India. –Cecilia DeMello
