É a realização cultural que satisfaz nossos sentidos estéticos, que preenche a lacuna do conhecimento e que nos guia na descoberta da beleza.——Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

A cultura implica tudo o que dá à mente a posse de seus próprios poderes; como a linguagem dá ao crítico, e o telescópio dá ao astrônomo.——Ralph Waldo Emerson

Conhecimento é a cristalização de pedras preciosas; Cultura é o brilho das pedras preciosas.——Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Mapuche: The People of the Earth, Part 1 of 2

The Mapuche have resided in modern day Argentina and Chile for over 2500 years. They make up the largest group of indigenous people in Chile, accounting for approximately 10% of the population. Another 300,000 reside in Argentina. The rituals and cultural traditions of the Mapuche people are designed to enable them to live in harmony with the stars, the earth and all her inhabitants. They believe humans and all animals, from the largest to the smallest insect, can only exist through the grace of a higher spiritual power. Humans are also viewed as essential and integral parts of everything that surrounds them, in the skies and on the earth.

Admont Abbey: A Magnificent Jewel of the Baroque Era

The Benedictine Abbey of Admont was founded in 1074 by Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg. It is now the oldest remaining monastery in Styria, Austria, and one of the largest neo-Gothic sacred buildings in the country. The name Admont comes from the Latin word “ad montes,“ which means “at the mountains.” Situated amidst the gorgeous mountains of Gesäuse National Park, the magnificent Admont Abbey gloriously represents the Rule of St. Benedict of Nursia: “So that in all things God may be glorified!”

A Cultura da Casa Aberta da Malásia

Fully embracing their multi-culture identity, Malaysians have a unique custom called, “open house,” which means during important cultural and religious festivals, they would open their houses to welcome not only friends and families, but also strangers. Through feasting and chatting together, cultural barriers are broken and new friendships are formed. Though 60% of the population are Muslims, national holidays such as Christmas, Chinese New Year, Deepavali, and native harvesting festivals are also celebrated, alongside various Islamic holidays such as the holy month of Ramadan, Eid-ul Fitr, and Eid-ul Adha. Now let’s take a look at how Malaysians celebrate some of their other holidays. His Excellency, Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, actively promotes harmonious existence among citizens of different races and backgrounds. “Malaysia was built on the foundations of tolerance, goodwill, mutual respect, the readiness of giving and sharing, selflessness, and a desire to make sacrifices for the sake of the country.” “Without such traits, Malaysia would not have grown into a developed country, which is capable of giving its people all the comforts and progress it has today.”

Anna Pavlova: The Will to Dance

In the cold Northern Russian winter of 1881, Anna Pavlova was born. Upon graduating in 1899, at age 18, Anna entered the Imperial Ballet, known today as the Ballet Company of the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, one of the most famous ballet companies in the world! Her wonderful charisma and the moving emotions conveyed through dance live on in the memories of all who saw her perform, in the choreographies she arranged or inspired, and in the notes of the eternal “Swan Lake.” For little Anna, the thin child of Theatre Street, the task she set out to achieve, though huge, was realized through the power of her strong determination.

Both the Baka and the Mbuti see the forest as their spiritual father and mother. They are a semi-nomadic group who have historically lived by foraging in the forest to supply all their needs. Whether Mbuti or Baka, everyone participates in the making of music as part of their every day interaction with others in their community and the forest. The Mbuti are categorized as a peaceful society for several reasons. Social customs are built around sharing, cooperating, interdependence, and avoiding disharmony with other groups of forest dwellers.

When the Buddha was alive, He had many disciples, and even His disciples could work miracles. And Jesus promised His disciples that whatever He did, they could do the same. Therefore, we owe it to mankind to practice the way Christ did, the way Buddha did. And because I owe it to mankind to attain what I have attained today, I have to share it with you. I am happy to share it with you. Whoever likes to share it, I’m happy to devote my time, my attention, my energy, even my health, my finances to you, without any request in return, except that you work for it for the benefit of yourself and for the world that we live in.

Yezidism: A Rich Spiritual Tradition and Its People, Part 2 of 2

The spiritual life of the Yezidis has been preserved primarily by oral tradition. Therefore, it is a living religion of the spirit which only recently has been recorded into texts. But there are guardians of the sacred textual tradition of Yezidism, and they are called the Qewwals, literally meaning “professionals of the world.” The Qewwals are the interpreters of the sacred textual tradition of Yezidism, touring the communities living some way away from Lalish in Iraq, which is the most sacred place to the Yezidis. In the presence of an image of the Peacock symbolizing the venerated deity Tawusi Melek, the Qewwals preach sermons and sing hymns while playing the holy instruments of Yezidism: the def (tambourine) and shibab (flute).

Yezidism: A Rich Spiritual Tradition and Its People, Part 1 of 2

The Yezidi people are a unique ethno-religious group possessing an ancient and richly elaborate religious tradition. In fact, they believe that all the world’s religions originated from the same primeval faith. Some Yezidis maintain that "Yezidi" translates as "Followers of the true path." It is also very close to the Persian or Zoroastrian word Yazdan, meaning “God,” and Yazata, meaning “divine” or “angelic being.” The Yezidis believe their ancestors were the first people to be created in the Garden of Eden, a large area in present-day Lalish in Iraq.

The Wondrous Guelaguetza of Mexico

Guelaguetza represents the longstanding, great occasion where native Oaxacans worshipped the ancient goddess of maize “Xilonen.” In order to pray for a bountiful harvest in the coming months, the people would gather and hold ceremonies and rituals. The modern-day festival is dedicated to the goddess of maize called “Centeotl”. The word “Guelaguetza” comes from a Zapotec term meaning “reciprocal exchange of gifts and services.” In other words, it is an event celebrating the spirit of sharing and giving, which is what makes a family, community, and county strong.
