Inner Beauty

...Kimberly Jusso Mrs. Kim Cook 8-13-11 Inner Beauty A few of the many traits that I have are confidence, curiosity, cautiousness, and generosity. I am not only confident because of how I approach a situation, but also how I handle the situation. Curiosity is a trait I possess because I am not afraid to try new things. Whenever something new is thrown my way I don’t knock it till I try it. To me being cautious is my main motto in life. I use it in everyday situations that come my way. Being cautious helps me in every aspect of my life because it helps me think about the consequences that are followed by my actions. Generosity is an act of unselfishness. To be generous you must have the willingness to give or share. Generosity is a trait that I have because I enjoy making other people happy. The traits that I have make me who I am and that alone make me different from everyone else. I am completely different outside of school compared to who I am inside of school. I am the type of people who cares more for other people’s sake then my own. In saying this, sometimes I put other people’s happiness in front of mine. One of my hobbies is reading. When I am reading it is like I am in a completely different world almost as if I am in the main characters shoes living there life and experiencing their journeys. Another hobby that I own would be hanging out with my friends. I enjoy being able to be around people that understand me, and knowing that I don’t have to be......

The Current Dalai Lama and His Impacts

...The current Dalai Lama and his impacts Buddhism originated in India and spread primarily through Asia. Now, it has become a worldwide religion, such as, the Tibetan Buddhism. Tibetan Buddhism has already established many communities of immigrant Tibetans in California, Colorado, New York, Hawaii, Switzerland, France, and Great Britain. Also, museums regularly acquire and show Tibetan Buddhist art (Molloy, 2008). Why does Tibetan Buddhism draw so much attention at present? One of reasons is the current Dalai Lama who has a significant impact on the people around the world. Who is “Dalai Lama” and why does he have such a significant impact on the people around the world? A religious reform movement emerged in Tibet in the fourteenth century, which came to be known as Gelug-pa. The Gelug-pa provided Tibet with its political leadership. The Dalai Lama is the executive head of the Gelug-pa (Molloy, 2008). In other words, the Dalai Lama is both the spiritual and political leader of the Tibetan people (Wieder, 1999). Meanwhile, Tibetan people believe that all the Dalai Lamas of Tibetan Buddhism are reincarnations of former Dalai Lamas. When a Dalai Lama dies, people will find and train the reincarnation (Sweet, 2009). People found the current Dalai Lama (the fourteenth Dalai Lama) in eastern Tibet (Molloy, 2008). He left Tibet in 1959 (Wieder, 1999), and thus his life was no longer limited in Tibet. This made many more people know Tibetan Buddhism and considerably improved his......

Salvador Dali

...Salvador Dali Salvador Dali’s bizarre nature and talent made him the most dominant figure of the surrealist movement and widely recognized artists in the world. Throughout his art, he clearly elaborates on juxtaposition, disposition and the morphing of objects. He created images that were nonexistent to mankind. He was born May 11, 1904 in Figures, Spain in the foothills of the Pyranies Mountains, sixteen miles from the French border. Dali had an older brother, less then a year older then him, also named Salvador, who died of gastroenteritis. When Dali turned five, his parents brought him to his brother’s grave; he figured he was a recreation of his older brother. Dali reminisced, "[we] resembled each other like two drops of water, but we had different reflections." He "was probably a first version of myself, but conceived too much in the absolute."
 During the summer, Dali and his family would often spend time in their second house in the coastal village of Cadaques. This scenery is very apparent in most of Dali’s works because this was where his talent started to emerge. As a child he was encouraged to practice his art, his parents even built an art studio, so he can advance within an academy. When Dali was sixteen his mother passed away, due to breast cancer, and this had a profound affect on him. The biggest tragedy was that she was going to be forgotten, and he vowed to never be forgotten. In 1922 he moved to Madrid, and studied in the Academia de Fernando. He...

...Paper Topic: Leadership Biography FREEDOM IN EXILE The Autobiography of the Dalai Lama By Tenzin Gyatso , The Fourteeth Dalai Lama of Tibet Published by Harper Collins , 1990 How would this person define leadership Although he never sets out to explicitly discuss a definition of leadership , we are quite able to see his point of view by considering the two places in the text where the Dalai Lama specifically praises a person as a good leader . The first of these is his own sister . In the course of his discussion of the many difficulties managing the groups of destitute refugees who had fled into India , her contribution was invaluable . As an explanation of why , he tells us that , She had an enormous capacity for hard work . This , coupled with her rather fierce nature , made her an excellent leader ' By itself , this does not quite bring out the focus of his compliment but that focus is made somewhat more clear when he tells us , a few pages later , about Mr Luthi , a worker with the Swiss Red Cross . He was , a man of tremendous zeal and energy , a real leader , who drove the people under him extremely hard For the Dalai Lama , then , there seem to be two elements to leadership one is the ability to bring a tremendous amount of effort to the task in question , and the second is an ability to get a similar effort out of the people you are leading . At first glance , this appears to be somewhat at odds with this holy man 's compassionate ,......

Salvador Dali the Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory

...Salvador Dali The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory MAKING: Select and write about ONE of the MAKING topics – process, education, materials or tools & technology – in 50-100 words. Salvador Dali used same painting elements as we all know today. If we would like to talk about his tools and techniques, the paintings are about “Hand-Painted Decam photographs”, he crisped about the details and used almost invisible brush work style. He gave importance to photographic realism. He contributed in the technical tradition of early Flemish and early Venetician painting. In his process, he used a jeweler’s glass for mainly close work, and small round gable brushes because of these, he had debt to Geargis de Chirico and Yvas Tanguy and they founded the use of perspective. STYLE: Choose and write about ONE of the STYLE topics – period, change, individuality or geography – in 50-100 words.

Inner Beauty

...Inner Beauty and Physical Beauty Beauty is defined as the qualities of a person that delight and please the minds of other people. The two major beauties are inner beauty and physical beauty. Inner beauty consists of the qualities that one cannot see but can still sense. Physical beauty consists of the qualities that one can see, and is often inherited from a parent or ancestor. These two beauties often have an impact on personal success and happiness. Inner beauty is based on the personality, attitude, traits, and the way people represents themselves to the world. Inner beauty is decorous and constantly makes other people happy. Physical beauty is an individual’s outer appearance such as body type, hair, eye color, face features, skin type, etc. This is the beauty in which other people see first. People often mistakenly label the physical beauty as inner beauty. Another difference between inner beauty and physical beauty is how that beauty is achieved. Inner beauty relates to how people behave. It can be changed through actions, manners and behaviors. Physical beauty is largely inherited from parents. But physical beauty can also be changed with cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery. People often choose such interventions to make a more acceptable image. The importance of the two beauties is the quality. Many people feel inner beauty is more important and pure than physical beauty. It does not lie and involves the heart, mind and soul. Inner......

Hieronymus Bosch vs. Salvador Dali

...Hieronymus Bosch vs. Salvador Dali Thesis Statement: Hieronymus Bosch is like a 15th century version of Salvador Dali. Dali is a 20th century version of Bosch. The Idea of fantasy and surrealism has been around as long as man has. Hieronymus Bosch, famous for his fantastical, often monstrous, hybrid creatures, might in some ways be seen as a forerunner of the Surrealists. However, while the Surrealists played in the realms of dreams and the unconscious, Bosch was steeped in the religiosity of his age and the worlds he conjured up demonstrated what were believed to be the very real, and sobering, consequences of earthly behavior. The life of Bosch is an intriguing mystery – little is known of his early life, or where he studied in painting and arts. He wrote little in the form of letters and had no diaries accompanying his work – in fact all we know of him is either through his paintings, or through brief references to him through other people’s writing – we don’t even know for certain when he was born. Part of the Early Renaissance, Bosch lived all of his life in the Netherlands, and is known to have come from a family of artists and painters, though none of their works can be found today. But the mystery isn’t all that makes him so interesting – his art is a marvel to behold, and in my opinion his work is the most detailed and interesting I’ve ever seen. He was fond of triptychs, a series of paintings that slotted in beside each other to create a combined scene,......

Dalai Lama

...Professor Byng Enc0017 29 July 2014 Compare and Contrast Essay The essays “The End of Race” and “Ethics and New Genetics” have some similarities and differences. Just like in these essays they have connections in what happening today in society. I am going to tell how the Dalai Lama and Steve Olson are similar and different from one another in a unique way. These writers don’t even realize it, but every aspect of their essays can relate and reflect to an aspect of another story, theirs or not. Even though at first I didn’t think that they would have any similarities and a lot of differences but as I kept reading I realized that technology plays an important role in both of these essay. The ethics of the Dalai Lama and the morals of Olson are both related to “right” and “wrong” conduct. However, ethics refers to the series of rules provided to an individual by an external source, e.g. their profession are religion. Morals refer to an individual’s own principles regarding right or wrong. Tenzin Gyasto is the fourteenth Dalai Lama leader of the central Tibetan Administration- the government in exile of Tibet. The Dalai Lama has played roles of religious and political leaders of his people. The Dalai Lama claims that religion and science are part of the same paths and we must attempt to bridge this gap between out different ways of thinking. Focusing on the fields of genetics engineering, tis potential benefits of this area of science is enormous but to bear the potential......

...Salvador Dali had an improbable outlook on artistic creations and an amazing ability to create magnificent portraits. He began painting while in school, and much of his work was admired by his fellow students and teachers. It would be in 1931 when Dali would create one of his most memorable pieces of work to date –the Persistence of Memory. Dali, also created arts such as Metamorphosis of Narcissus in 1937 and The Elephants in 1948. The Metamorphosis of Narcissus retells the story of the tragic fate of Narcissus and Echo. Elephants on the other hand were specially selected animals which Dali used to contrast the difference between weight and structure, with the elephants carrying huge weight on their backs on top of brittle legs which were vastly elongated in order to substantially distort reality and strengthen the symbolism in his painting. Although Dali was a great artist, it was his unusual way of thinking and deep concern for dreams that gained him the most notoriety. Salvador Dali was born in 1904 in Figueres, Spain. In 1921, his mother passed away, and drew Dali closer to the arts. At first influenced by futurism, in 1924 Dalí came under the influence of the Italian painter de Chirico while in art school in Spain and by 1929 he had become a leader of Surrealism. His precisely realistic style enhances the obsessively nightmarish effect of many of his paintings. Among his best-known works is Persistence of Memory with its strangely melting clocks. In 1940 Dalí......

Dalai Lama

...GOD KING In the first lint the reporter tells us that we are here for the Dalai Lama, and he’s described as “Tibet’s Exiled Spiritual Leader”, straight away he emphasizes the importance of this man When I think of the word “exiled”, an authoritative order of that country prevents them from being there. The importance of how Buddhists regard their “spiritual leaders” is not, as in Catholicism, where they are simply elected, but carry a far greater power. Buddhists believe that the people like the Dalai Lama are a reincarnation of the very God they worship ( In the DVD we see how a young child, Tashi Tsering is believed to be the reincarnation of Khensur Rinpoche. We go through other worldly rituals, including a Monk in a trance dancing with swords. The child is then confirmed by the Dalai Lama to be the reincarnate. One of the monks comments that the child's parents were not upset after being told they are to take their son, but seem happy that he is the one. We are told of the event in the final line of the paragraph that he is there to teach centuries old “Buddhist text about the path of enlightenment. Dalai Lama roughly translates as ‘ocean of wisdom’ (Reputations, Waterhouse, 2004, p.207) and like Tashi Tsering, he has been immersed in Buddhist wisdom since he was a child. To this day he limits the amount of sleep he has, so that everyday he can spend long periods of time engaged in Buddhist practice. In the second paragraph of the article we are told of the......

His most famous teaching is the Kalachakra Tantra, which are the philosophies and meditation practices contained in the Kalacakra Tantra. There are three different Kalachkra’s. The Outer, the Inner, and the Alternative. The outer refers to the outer world which is the vessel supporting the living beings. It is compounded by the six elements earth, water, fire, air, space and wisdom. The Inner consists of the body and mind of living beings, the psychophysical arrogates, the sensory and psychic capacities so forth. The alternative describes the spiritual method leading to enlightenment in the form of Kalachakra.

Inner Beauty

...How might a person develop inner beauty? I think this is a great question. We are all familair with the expression that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This expression could not be more true. We live in a society today where people belive physical looks are considered most important. This could not be more untrue. Beauty is not defined by physical appearance, intelligence or status. Inner beauty is more relevant than physical beauty. It is about love compassion and kindness. Inner beauty has a great importance of building your self esteem. Finding your inner beauty should be continuously worked on. It is a life developing process. Finding your inner beauty is about knowing yourself and your own self worth. It is about achieving and recognizing your own good charater qualities. This includes your positive attributes and strengths. Inner beauty is simply about being yourself. Being true to who your are and what you believe. It is showing compassion, kindness and in some instances forgiveness. It is about loving the skin you are in. Not the physical outward appearance. A great way to obtain inner beauty is stayin away from negative people and comments. You should not allow anyway to bring you down. It is about staying positive and living an honest life.

Dala Lama

...Tara Brown Heather Curan Philosophy and Religion-HUM 400 May 9, 2011 Dalai Lama Dalai Lama was a god known as the Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet. He lived in a homeland called Lhaso. Tibetan culture is the way which the position of spiritual and secular leader practice Buddhism. One aspect of the Dalai Lama’s training differs symbolically. He read important scriptures from the Bible and attended many meetings in his spare time. In 1954, he looked at the rewards of Communism. Chinese soldiers attacked and destroyed Tibetan religious institutions. He complained to Chairman Mao. He quoted, “Religion is poison.” Dalai Lama concluded what a horrible thing it was. In 1956, he accepted Prime Minister Nehru’s invitation. While he was at the celebration, Nehru warned him about the war in Tibet. Dalai Lama went on with his monastic studies. While he resided in his summer home, he almost got kidnapped by the Chinese forces. His only escape was to leave India immediately. He continued with the campaign saving Tibet from there. Two weeks later, he reached India for a new beginning. His young life in India was very different than his life in his homeland. Now he took full charge of his life and creates policies with his personal principles. After he arrived in India, he continued reform in the community. He opened settlement communities and monasteries. ......
