Sacred Chants of Shiva...
The Red Lady of Paviland is a fairly complete Upper Paleolithic-era human male skeleton dyed in red ochre.. Discovered in 1823, at 33,000 years old it is one of the oldest ceremonial burials of a modern human discovered anywhere in Western Europe..The bones were discovered between 18 and 25 January 1823 by Rev. William Buckland during an archaeological dig at Goat's Hole Cave, one of the limestone caves between Port Eynon and Rhossili, on the Gower Peninsula, south Wales..When Buckland first discovered the skeleton in 1823, he misjudged both its age and its gender. As a creationist, Buckland believed no human remains could have been older than the Biblical Great Flood, and thus wildly underestimated its true age, believing the remains to date to the Roman era.. Buckland believed the skeleton was female in large part because it was discovered with decorative items, including perforated seashell necklaces and jewellery thought to be of elephant ivory but now known to be carved from the tusk of a mammoth.. These decorative items combined with the skeleton's red dye caused Buckland to mistakenly speculate that the remains belonged to a Roman prostitute or witch...

Epstein attended a traditional shiva in Liverpool after his father died, having just come out of the Priory clinic where he had been trying to cure his acute insomnia and addiction to amphetamines.. A few days before his death, he made his last visit to a Beatles recording session on 23 August 1967, at the Chappell Recording Studios on Maddox Street, London..The word Shiva comes from the Hebrew word shiv'ah, which literally means se7en.. The tradition was developed in response to the story in Genesis 50:1-14 in which Joseph mourns the death of his father Jacob (Israel) for se7en days..It is considered a great mitzvah (literally "commandment" but usually interpreted as "good deed") of kindness and compassion to pay a home visit (make or pay a shiva call) to the mourners, a practice known as Nichum Aveilim..Each aspect of Vajrayoginī's form and mandala is designed to convey a spiritual meaning.. For example, her brilliant red-colored body symbolizes the blazing of her inner fire (Tib. tummo).. Her single face symbolizes that she has realized that all phenomena are of one nature in emptiness. Her 2 arms symbolize her realization of the two truths.. Her 3 eyes symbolize her ability to see everything in the past, present and future..So many of our highest-ranking officers, whose responsibility it is to deal with the Israelites, they make no attempt to get inside the Jewish head - I went to visit this rabbi - old man, long beard - in his one-room flat..And when he saw me, his eyes grew as large as hen's eggs.. I asked him to teach me his language, and he agreed, and he said that he would, but that he would charge me - of course... the judge has a special love for them?..Yes, yes a special love for them..very good..and close to significant rail access.. And we are turning that camp into a major center...
