Pei Wenzhong

Pei Wenzhong, or W. C. Pei, was a Chinese paleontologist and anthropologist born in Fengnan, he is considered a founding figure of Chinese anthropology. Pei graduated from Peking University in 1928 and went to work for the Cenozoic Research Laboratory of the Geological Survey of China joining the excavations of the Peking Man Site at Zhoukoudian, where he was named the field director of the excavations the following year; the work at Zhoukoudian was carried out under difficult conditions: for example, the scientists had to ride there on mules, some 40 km southwest of the city of Beijing. The first fossil hominin skullcap was recovered by Pei "working in a 40-meter crevasse in frigid weather with a hammer in one hand and a candle in the other on December 2, 1929, at 16.00 hours. From 1933 to 1934, he supervised the excavation of the Upper Cave at Zhoukoudian and was director of the Zhoukoudian Office of the Cenozoic Research Laboratory of the Geological Survey of China. Here he discovered and classified the small, extinct "Zhoukoudian wolf".

He left the excavation in 1935 to pursue a doctoral degree at the University of Paris and was succeeded by Professor Jia Lanpo. He returned to the excavation in 1937, shortly before they ceased due to the Japanese invasion of north China.

Advayataraka Upanishad

Advayataraka Upanishad is an ancient Sanskrit text and a minor Upanishad of Hinduism. It is one of the 19 Upanishads attached to the Shukla Yajurveda, it is classified as a Yoga Upanishad. The Upanishad is notable for its discussion of Guru; the text discusses three goals of Taraka yoga and the nondual nature of Reality. The text includes verses on Raja yoga, Kundalini Tantra; the Upanishad states that maya or illusion is the reason for the "differentiation" of the living from God. It is listed 53 in the serial order of the Muktika enumerated by Rama to Hanuman in the modern era anthology of 108 Upanishads; the text is known as Advaya Taraka Upanishad and Advayatarakopanishad. Advayataraka is a composite Sanskrit word, consisting of Advaya which means "nondual, unity, not two, without a second", Taraka which means "liberate, carry over, rescuer"; the literal meaning of'taraka' is star and "pupil of the eye". In Raja Yoga parlance it is that light between and in front of the eyebrows, realized during meditation.

Gavin Flood dates this text, along with other Yoga Upanishads, to be from the 100 BCE to 300 CE period. The Advayataraka text is one of the rare Yoga Upanishads that contains a mix of prose and poetic verses, while others are in verse form, it consists of eighteen passages/verses with an epilogue nineteenth praise passage. The text opens declaring its target and stating ethics as the eligibility requirement for yogin, calling him as Yati. Yati is synonymous with Sanyasis, Pravrajita/Pravrajitā, Sramana and Parivrajaka in ancient and medieval Hindu texts; the first verse states, "then and for that reason, this knowledge is for Yati who has gained six behavioral qualities – Sama, Uparati, Samadhana, Śraddhā. Verse 2 of the text states that the yogin should always keep in mind, "my true form is consciousness", introspect on the transcendent Brahman whose true form is sat-cit-ananda, or "being-consciousness-bliss", it is this introspection, asserts the text, by which he becomes Brahman form himself.

It is through the use of Neti-Neti, or "not this, not this", states verse 3, does the yogin reach release from the fear of rebirth and the liberating knowledge of non-dual Brahman. The Upanishad discusses introspection objectives, from verse 4 to 7; the introspection is of three types, each yielding insights, signs or visions, is described as Taraka-yoga. The internal Lakshya is described in Tantra terminology, it is realizing the Sushumna nadi. Realizing this with his mind, he is released from bondage, he can see a blue radiant space with closed eyes. When kundalini is realized the knowledge of brahman is achieved, the only stage when one crosses the threshold of fear of the cycle of birth and death; the external Lakshya, the second type is described in the text's verse 6 as the brightness on top of his head, sensed by the Yogin. It is of blue color bordering with indigo color above, asserts the text, orange or golden in front, in any direction of earth he sees; the universe looks radiant to this accomplished Yogin.

The verse 7 mentions the middle or intermediate Lakshya. It is what the Yogin senses at dawn during sunrise, where he feels his self identical, translates Ayyangar, with "the vast disc of resplendent Sun", darkness brought into relief by the splendor of radiant Taraka form, transcendent lustre excelling all and within; these three types of visions, states Dhavamony, are part of the Ambhavi-mudra tantric practice. The text clarifies Taraka-yoga to be of two kinds: Know that Yoga is two fold, in the relationship of priority and posteriority; the former should be known the latter Amanaska. Verse 9 asserts that macrocosm of the universe is present inside the microcosm of human body, the Yogin should contemplate upon macrocosm and microcosm as one. Taraka can be distinguished into two, one Murti-Taraka and the other Amurti-Taraka, states verse 10; the Murti-Taraka can be perceived with sensory organs, the Amurti-Taraka is knowable by means of introspection with "the eye aided by the mind". The Taraka manifestation occurs when there is conjunction of the Atman, the Mind and the eyes, to perceive the inward truth, asserts the text.

In verse 11, the text states that the Taraka and Amanaska methods can be practiced by casting one's eyes, conjoint with one's mind by a Yogin. Sambhu mudra is described in verse 12; the praise for Guru, for Yoga practice, is first mentioned in verse 13, as the one who helps one guide the introspective stages, leading the Yogin to realize the consciousness and Turiya. Four often-cited verses from the Advayataraka Upanishad reverentially narrate teacher; the best Acharya, state verses 14-15, is one knows the Vedas, a devotee of the god Vishnu, has no spite, who knows yoga, has his own views on it, Yoga is part of how he lives his life, is clean, reveres his own Guru, who understands the concept of Purusha. The Upanishad explains the word "Guru" as follows: Thus, the role of a Guru is one of eliminating ignorance by helping the student reach knowledge; the Guru is the supreme goal, the transcende

Marche slave

The Marche slave in B-flat minor, Op. 31, is an orchestral tone poem by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky published in 1876. It has been published variously as Slavic March, Slavonic March, Serbo-Russian March, it was written to celebrate Russia's intervention in the Serbo-Turkish War. In June 1876, Serbia and the Ottoman Empire were engaged in the Serbo-Turkish War. Russia supported Serbia; the Russian Musical Society commissioned an orchestral piece from Tchaikovsky for a concert in aid of the Red Cross Society, for the benefit of wounded Serbian veterans. Many Russians sympathized with their fellow Slavs and Orthodox Christians and sent volunteer soldiers and aid to assist Serbia. Tchaikovsky referred to the piece as his "Serbo-Russian March", it was premiered in Moscow on November 17 1876, conducted by Nikolai Rubinstein. The march is programmatic in its form and organization; the first section describes the oppression of the Serbs by the Turks. It uses two Serbian folk songs, "Sunce jarko, ne sijaš jednako", by Isidor Ćirić and "Rado ide Srbin u vojnike", by Josip Runjanin - giving way to the second section in the relative major key, which describes the Russians rallying to help the Serbs.

This is based on a simple melody with the character of a rustic dance, passed around the orchestra until it gives way to a solemn statement of the Russian national anthem "God Save the Tsar". The third section of the piece is a repeat of Tchaikovsky's furious orchestral climax, reiterating the Serbian cry for help; the final section describes the Russian volunteers marching to assist the Serbs. It uses a Russian tune, this time in the tonic major key and includes another blazing rendition of "God Save the Tsar" prophesying the triumph of the Slavonic people over tyranny; the overture finishes with a virtuoso coda for the full orchestra. The piece is paired in performance with Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture," which quotes "God Save the Tsar." The march is scored for two flutes, two piccolos, two oboes, two clarinets in B flat, two bassoons, four horns in F, two cornets in B flat, two trumpets in B flat, three trombones, three timpani, snare drum, bass drum and strings.
