aspirations or visions of the Path.
The Mahayana accepts Gautama as a Buddha but greatly expands the notion of Buddhahood by recognizing a rich pantheon of Buddhas and bodhisattvas (those whose essence is enlightenment). It is also produced scriptures that are not accepted by other forms of Buddhism as the word of Buddha. Mahayana differs from Theravada in its representation of the final goal that a Buddhist follower should seek. Expanding on the Theravadin ideal of the arhat, who devotes himself to gaining insight, it offers the path of the bodhisattva as the ultimate accomplishment. The Mahayana considers other paths as inferior to that of the bodhisattva, referring to them derogatively as the Hinayana or “Lesser Vehicle.”

palaces were constructed specially by Siddhartha's father, Suddhodona Gautama, in order that his son become a proper ruler instead of the Buddha. "And so Prince Siddhartha of the house of Gautama increased in stature, well nurtured, protected from the world, and surrounded by an immense retinue in regal splendor" (Mitchell 20).At this time, there comes a lull in the life of both boys. Jesus is mentioned only once in the Bible between his return to Nazareth and the beginning of his teaching. Other sources, not officially accepted by the Christian churches, do tell some about him. Anna, Jesus' grandmother, wrote that he was very generous, giving away fruit he had picked himself and losing

How does the Buddhist religion tie in with the Tibetans, affect their cultural society in modern day, and through out the generations? Buddhism was born from the Hindu religion during the Axis period around 563-483 B.C.E. " Buddha was born Siddhartha Gautama, a prince of the Sakya tribe of Nepal, in approximately 566 BC. When he was twenty-nine years old, he left the comforts of his home to seek the meaning of the suffering he saw around him. After six years of arduous yogic training, he abandoned the way of self-mortification and instead sat in mindful meditation beneath a bodhi tree. On the full moon of May, with the rising of the morning star, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha, the

Little is known about the life of the early Buddhas. There was nothing written, biographically, during his life. Some of the history prior to his enlightenment could possible be mythological.
Buddha was born in India to Suddhodana, king of the clan, and Maya his wife. He was born Siddhartha Gautama somewhere between the years of 420 and 502 BCE. It seems to be that he was born to the second of the four Indian Casts, the aristocratic warrior caste called Ksatriyas. He was Raised Hindu. When he was sixteen Buddha, he married Yasodhara, whom was thirteen years his elder.

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

In Steely Library’s digital archives, one of the postcards from the Gilliam family collection is entitled Western Kentucky Asylum for the Insane, Hopkinsville, KY. The postcard dates back to 1915 and portrays a beautiful building, complete with red bricks and white columns. Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

and stare at the sky, until the swirling clouds began to take on our imaginative shapes mingled
together by our fantastical minds. We would grip imaginary weapons and fight, thrusting swords
like the most violent of fantasy pirates. These unforgettable days went on and on, a never ending

Comparison Between the Portrayal of Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby in Chapters 1 to 6
Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and

Be your true self
Fredrich Nietzche once said “The individual has always struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the the privilege of owning yourself.” In my opinion, I believe this quote is true. Many people feel like they have to be a certain way for society to like them. When in reality, they want to be true to to themselves, but they are fearful of judgement.

Friedman presented the example of Dell because it runs one of the major global supply chain networks in the world.
This theory basically outlines that due to economic inter-dependence of the countries with each other, it is hardly a chance that these countries will actually engage into war. Global organizations maintain a diversified and well-oiled supply chain in order to ensure a

The rose with large, sharp thorns in my visual representation symbolizes Katherine as she does not obey men and physically harms them to get what she wants as even though she is pretty and has high status she has a dangerous, sharp personality. The colour of the rose represents her love, passion and anger as she has many layers much like the rose

Genetic engineering is also called genetic modification or GM. It involves modifying the genome of an organism by introducing a gene from another organism to result in a desired characteristic.
How has genetic engineering worked until now, and what are the limitations?
Generally it uses what’s known as a bacterial vector. In simple terms, you take the stretch of DNA you want to insert into an organism – say, for example, the DNA that makes a carrot produce vitamin A. You insert it into a bacterium, usually agrobacterium tumefaciens, and you introduce that bacterium into the organism you want to modify, say a rice plant. The bacterium acts as a delivery mechanism, inserting that stretch of

In developed nations such as the United States, polite phrases and etiquette such as “Nice to meet you” or “How are you?” are friendly and useful for small talk, but they are completely empty of true meaning and goodwill due to centuries of repetition, and should be avoided as they are a waste of words and breath if a person does not truly mean it.
Common phrases such as “please” and “thank you” have lost their meaning. They act only as the default frame of conversations, but they have no substance or sincerity. The origin of certain etiquette such as saying “goodbye” or “farewell” to guests is the ancient Nordic value of hospitality. Guests were seen as a test sent by

This experiment will assess whether bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) seeds germinate faster when treated with gibberellic acid than when treated with water alone.
The growth and behaviour of plants is controlled largely by hormones. Plant hormones influence such phenomena as the orientation of stems toward light, internode length, and the timing of flowering (Smith & Ravinn, 1984). Another
