Really, where is your bias coming from?
What are you afraid of? And where do you get the nonsense about Lucifer?
The standard of your journalism has dropped below the Professional threshold this time.

Editor's response: It is New Age/Buddhist indoctrination, sneaking into schools under the guise of a secular 'anti-bullying' programme (who could object to that?). At least Bible in Schools is honest about what it is. This is just deceptive con-artistry. As for the Lucifer angle, go check out Theosophy's sacred writings and in particular (I love this one): "It is Satan who is the god of our planet, and the only god" (Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine). Or, "In antiquity and reality Lucifer or Luciferius is the name. Lucifer is divine and terrestrial Light, the 'Holy Ghost' and 'Satan' at one and the same time." (ditto)
You're a Buddhist, so you really should be aware that the Buddhist faith you follow today is not based so much on the teachings of Gautama, but more on the teachings of Helena Blavatsky who is responsible for nearly all Buddhism as it is practiced today, she and her team having travelled to Ceylon, one of the final remaining outposts of Buddhism in the 1870s, and re-interpreted the texts, training the monks to go to the Asian mainland and spread the new satanic version, which they did.
Many New Age groups today pray 'The Great Invocation', a prayer supposedly given to Theosopher and Satanist Alice Bailey in 1945 by a two thousand year old spirit entity called Djwhal Khul ... it is a prayer inviting the antichrist to come to earth: "Let light stream forth into human minds/ Let Light descend on Earth/ .May the Coming One return to Earth." The 'Coming One' as you have already seen, is Lucifer. The Great Invocation opened proceedings leading into the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, it is now commonly used in meditation, and is endorsed by the United Nations as the prayer to be uttered for International Peace Day.
Interesting, Bailey wrote that Lucifer will use the United Nations, and the energy generated by meditating for peace through world unity, to return to Earth in power:
"The one who works to produce at-one-ment, unification and fusion is generating a slowly-growing will-to-unity within the Assembly of the United Nations. This Being can only channel His energies through the mass consciousness, or through a group conscious entity, such as the UN."
The 'mass consciousness' is relevant to the rollout of meditation programmes in schools, because the UN assistant Secretary General responsible for the world education curriculum (which includes New Zealand's NCEA) was a Lucifer-worshipper and disciple of Alice Bailey's. His name was Dr Robert Muller and he put in place education policies like this:
"Global education must transcend material, scientific and intellectual achievements and reach deliberately into the moral and spiritual spheres."
Which is where Mindfulness comes in. The techniques are religious, and Mindfulness practitioners saying otherwise are lying to you. It is in all the rituals, including the ringing of a small bell in classrooms during meditation.
As the UN's spiritual adviser Sri Chinmoy said in a UN ceremony, "The divine success and supreme progress of the United Nations is bound to become a reality. At his choice hour, the Absolute Supreme will ring His own victory-bell here on Earth."
Yes, in a school classroom somewhere near you, where New Age religious freaks have been allowed to indoctrinate your kids ... anyone wanting the documentary evidence supporting these allegations will find the documents in the book Totalitaria.
