  • A.C. Bhaktivedante Swami Prabhupada
    467 words
    One Mans Mission It is to my understanding that A.C. Bhaktivedante Swami Prabhupada understood his mission in life to create a worldwide culture of devotees to Krishna. In his deeply rooted beliefs, he turned his life into an act rather than a time span. Prahupadas father ultimately worshipped Krishna, and taught Prabhupada to do the same. Bhaktivedates mission began in 1922 when he first met his spiritual leader, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami. His spiritual leader influenced Prabhupad...
  • Transcendental Meditation Technique
    596 words
    The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple, natural, effortless procedure practiced for any amount of time, usually 10-20 minutes in the morning and evening, while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. During this technique, the individual's awareness settles down and experiences a unique state of restful alertness. As the body becomes deeply relaxed, the mind transcends all mental activity to experience the simplest form of awareness, Transcendental Consciousness, where consciousne...
  • Servant Self Conscious Acts
    526 words
    Relation of Master and Servant According to Hegel, "the self conscious is itself and for itself" meaning that it has to come outside of itself, so that it can do two things. One is to cancel out the other otherness. The second is to try to become recognized. This recognition process is called Master and Servant self-conscious. The conflict between master and servant is one in which the historical themes such as dependence and independence are introduced. It sets up the realization of the self co...
  • Repression Causes Anxiety
    1,367 words
    CRITICALLY DISCUSS THE PSYCHOANALYTIC CONCEPT OF REPRESSION Repression is defined (White, 1964, p 214) "the forgetting, or ejection from consciousness of memories of threat, and especially the ejection from awareness of impulses in oneself that might have objectionable consequences". In layman's terms when forming a memory, the brain takes what we see, hear, smell, feel and taste and fills in the blank spaces with information that we have perceived from common knowledge and stores it as a memory...
  • Impulses Of The Consciousness
    650 words
    The works of Conrad Aiken are informed by his life-long dedication to the exploration of human consciousness and its evolution. As Aikens earliest writings demonstrate, these - and the two corollary issues of identity and poetry as the means of evolving consciousness - pre- occupied him from the very outset of his career. In a book entitled "Impulse", Aiken through his hero Micheal Lowes tries to determine what is right and wrong. The hero, like mediocre poets, is opposed to superior ones, "do n...
  • Expansion Of The Western Consciousness
    606 words
    The transitions to a higher self of the human consciousness include two main historical transitions, Greek and Christian. The Greek transited from the mythical to the critical consciousness with the argument of philosophers such as Aristotle. The Christian transition is from that of a concept of rationality to an existential one by the aid of philosophers, like Augustine. Before Plato and Aristotle, the two main philosophers that paved the way for the expansion of the western world, the general ...
  • Mrs Mooney And Mr Doran
    2,841 words
    The Unconscious Struggle for Human Existence According to philosopher Karl Marx, humans are "slaves to historical necessity and their thought and thinking are rigidly determined by the mode of production" (Beer xxii). This view of historical materialism asserts that the culture, political, and government systems of a given people derive from the material conditions of their existence. Thus, "life is not determined by consciousness, but consciousness by life" (Reader 155). In the short story, "Th...
  • Let My Form
    445 words
    Selflessness Buddhism denies that there is anything corresponding to the common idea of a soul or self. Instead, the Buddha taught that the soul is a false notion imputed to a collection of constantly changing parts. These are referred to as the five "aggregates" (skandha): form, feelings, discriminations, consciousness, and compositional factors. Form refers to one's physical form, and feelings are our emotional responses to the things we experience. Discriminations are classifications of these...
  • Innocence And Beauty
    1,525 words
    "Among School Children' is a poem used by Yeats to determine an upcoming generation with the underlying concept that no possible life can be fulfilled. The philosophy controlling this work suggests that perhaps life ' prepares us for what never happens'. Consistent with Yeatsian philosophy, it follows the dogma which states that wistlessness brings about innocence, whereas knowledge brings us ballyhoo. Within the realms of acquired wisdom, consciousness produces an anarchic state within the indi...
