Complaint against yoga lessons in Swedish school because "OM" is holy Hindu word!!!

The "om" chant featured in yoga lessons at a Stockholm school has prompted a complaint calling for the lessons to be banned because of the term's ties to the Hindu religion.

"Schools should be free from religious compenents, according the the education act," reads the complaint filed with the Swedish Schools Inspectorate (Skolinspektionen).

"The law has led the Schools Inspectorate to criticize graduation ceremonies in church, but not when one practices yoga in school."

 The complaint cites recent Swedish media reports featuring teachers and students who praised the yoga lessons offered at the Östermalm school in Stockholm and explained how the word “om” creates “physical vibrations in the body”. Full story...
