The virginity of our Blessed Lady was defined under anathema in the third canon of the Lateran Council held in the time of Pope Martin I, A.D. 649. The Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed, as recited in the Mass, expresses belief in Christ "incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary"; the Apostles' Creed professes that Jesus Christ "was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary"; the older form of the same creed uses the expression: "born of the Holy Ghost and of the Virgin Mary".
His Holiness the Dalai Lama was born on 6 July 1935, and named Lhamo Thondup, to a poor family in the small village of Taktser in the province of Amdo. The Dalai Lama wants KFC to stop slicing the beaks off baby birds without pain relief, stop breeding and drugging birds to grow so obese that their legs break and stop scalding millions of chickens to death in slaughterhouses every year.
Søren Kierkegaard was born to an affluent family in the capital of Denmark. His father, Michael Pedersen Kierkegaard, was a strongly religious man. Convinced that he had earned God's wrath, he believed that none of his children would live past the age attained by Jesus Christ, that of 33. Surely no one will prove himself so great a bore as to contradict me in this. . . . The gods were bored, and so they created man. Adam was bored because he was alone, and so Eve was created. Thus boredom entered the world, and increased in proportion to the increase of population.
OSHO: Never Born - Never Died - Only visited this planet Earth between December 11, 1931 and January 19, 1990. Rajneesh claimed that the greatest values in life are (in no specific order) love, meditation and laughter, and that the highest grace in life was in experiencing spiritual enlightenment. He said this enlightenment is the normal state of being for all that makes up the cosmos, but one is distracted from realizing that one is experiencing it - particularly by the human activity of thought, as well as by emotional ties to societal expectations, and consequent fears and inhibitions.
Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot, and auld Lang syne?
For auld Lang syne, my dear,
For auld Lang syne,
We?ll take a cup o? kindness yet,
For auld Lang syne.
And surely you'll buy your pint cup! And surely I will buy mine! And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet, for auld Lang syne... (Om Me Padme Hum).
