Burmese marionettes reported current events, educated the people in literature, history, and religion, and even enjoyed the rare privilege of speaking for kings. Here, the Burmese marionette theater is described in detail, and the characters and stories of these yoke-thei ("small dolls") are introduced.

Our Life is like a book -- the story is already written for each of us. With every passing day, all we actually do is turn over a new page and execute second by second, minute by minute of what is written in our book of life. The number of pages in this book of life is different for each of us and so are the quality and colors of these pages.The book concept may seem like - since everything is destined, there is no point in putting in any hard work in our pursuit of success. This is where the interpretation could possibly go wrong. Even if you have understood what the concept of illusion is or if you have not, there is no way you will sit idle and achieve success. If your script dictates success, then in all probability, you will get it by overcoming hardships. You will be governed by the script which will ensure that you move mountains if need be, to achieve success.The author's life experiences have given him an insight, which he has tried to transform into this book. Many examples from real life stories have been referred to bring home the story of this concept. Hopefully, this book would help the reader understand the illusion which governs our lives and help cope with stress and failure in a more spiritual way. It would help the reader to accept his script -- his story, in the book of life.


Illusion of Life and Death

We are stuck in a dream world, but this is not a sweet dream. There is hope, but we must change. We must help ourselves, and help each other. 'Illusion of Life and Death' presents us with the complete path to enlightenment.

Illusion is our life, our death. We are stuck in a dream world, but this is not a sweet dream. There is hope, but we must change. We must help ourselves, and help each other. 'Illusion of Life and Death' presents us with the complete path to enlightenment. It is a personal testament to the value and effectiveness of the Buddhist teachings and an empowering embrace of our own potential. Written to intrigue and inspire beginners, as well as nourish more experienced practitioners, 'Illusion' is essential reading for anyone interested in awakening to a happier, more enlightened world. Kyabje Dzogchen Pema Kalsang Rinpoche is one of the most eminent Lamas in Tibet and master of the Dzogchen teachings of Great Perfection. In this, his first volume of writings for a non-Tibetan audience, Kyabje Rinpoche shares what he describes as his 'entire teaching' in a style that is as much an oral teaching as a formal written instruction. 'Illusion of Life and Death' makes many profound Dzogchen teachings widely available in English for the first time.

We tend to believe we have agency over our bodies, our minds and even our deaths. Yet emerging science challenges our assumptions of mastery: at the microscopic level, the cells in our bodies facilitate tumours and attack other cells, with life-threatening consequences. In this revelatory book, Barbara Ehrenreich argues that our bodies are a battleground over which we have little control, and lays bare the cultural charades that shield us from this knowledge. Challenging everything we think we know about life and death, she also offers hope - that we find our place in a natural world teeming with animation and endless possibility.

The Animation Studies Reader brings together both key writings within animation studies and new material in emerging areas of the field. The collection provides readers with seminal texts that ground animation studies within the contexts of theory and aesthetics, form and genre, and issues of representation. The first section collates key readings on animation theory, on how we might conceptualise animation, and on some of the fundamental qualities of animation. New material is also introduced in this section specifically addressing questions raised by the nature, style and materiality of animation. The second section outlines some of the main forms that animation takes, which includes discussions of genre. Although this section cannot be exhaustive, the material chosen is particularly useful as it provides samples of analysis that can illuminate some of the issues the first section of the book raises. The third section focuses on issues of representation and how the medium of animation might have an impact on how bodies, gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity are represented. These representations can only be read through an understanding of the questions that the first two sections of the book raise; we can only decode these representations if we take into account form and genre, and theoretical conceptualisations such as visual pleasure, spectacle, the uncanny, realism etc.

New York Times best-selling author and comedian-turned-motivational speaker, Kyle Cease, shows how your obsession with money is actually preventing you from living the life of your dreams. "I can't afford that." "Now's not the right time . . . I need to save up." "Quit my job? Are you nuts?!" Sound familiar? Money is one of the biggest excuses we make to not go after what we really want. Our fixation with money--the desire for more of it, and the fear of not having enough of it--is often really just a longing to feel safe. But this obsession with money is coming at a much bigger cost: our sanity, our creativity, our freedom, and our ability to step into our true power. This book is about eliminating the need to seek safety through the illusion of money, and learning to see ourselves for the perfection that we are--so that we can bring our gifts to the world in an authentic way, and allow ourselves to receive massive, true abundance as a result. Kyle Cease has heard excuses like the ones above countless times at his live events, and he has shown people how to completely break through them. In The Illusion of Money, he shares his own experiences as well as practical tools to help readers understand their ingrained beliefs and attachments to money, and how they can tap into our infinite assets and talents. "After 25 years as a successful comedian, actor, transformational speaker, author and junior-league amateur bowler, I've experienced many times how chasing money is not an effective way to create an abundant and fulfilling life. The most alive I've ever felt was after I left my comedy career at its peak to become a transformational speaker. I left tons of guaranteed money and so-called security for a complete unknown. It was terrifying--but what was on the other side of that terror was a completely different life that is not only more abundant financially, but has more freedom, more ease, more passion, more impact and more joy." -- Kyle Cease

The Illusion Of Beauty

Though "The Illusion of Beauty" is but a work of fiction, it is routed in, and speaks to the good and bad in all of us.

This parable is about a young lady's journey through the circumstances of life that can affect us for better, or worse. She starts out life disfigured but through the wonder of cosmetic surgery is transformed into a beauty queen. During this time, she gets caught up in a world that affords her all the advantages that come with pronounced physical beauty. On the other hand, having come from a humble background where beauty is determined by who we are rather than one's outward appearance, she never completely embraces all of the superficialities laid before her. While she is on this path, she encounters an older man of significant stature and prominence who is caught in a conflict between good and evil, but has always sided with good by using evil to achieve that outcome. He embraces her with the love and affection of a father, and brings attention to her humble beginnings reminding her that, that which makes her truly beautiful is who she should hold on to, if she wishes to avoid the pitfalls of the world that she's encountered. Later, she is embraced by a matriarch who possesses a good heart, along with a generous and giving nature, over time, the two of them become close. The strength of their bond along with their kind natures create a mother daughter type relationship between them, enabling both to grow into even better and greater loving souls, which further strengthens them as women. Eventually, the young lady experiences an accident which leaves her temporarily blind. Once again, she comes across another matriarch who aids her during this time of crisis. The elderly lady shares her love, time, knowledge, and wisdom enabling the girl to attain an even greater height of emotional and spiritual maturity. During this moment of darkness, the young lady encounters a gentleman who through their experience together returns her to the true essence of her being. And, by the love and guidance of the elder come to discover they are kindred spirits. Finally, when the girl is threatened, the older father like gentleman protects her from any acts of evil against her, or her love by once again using evil in the defense of good. Though "The Illusion of Beauty" is but a work of fiction, it is routed in, and speaks to the good and bad in all of us. Also, the choices we make that at times may be imposed upon us, or the ones we make simply because the circumstances allow us to, for better or worse.

The Illusion of Reality was conceived during my tenure as director of the newly established Division of Information Science and Technology at the National Science Foundation in 1979-1981 as a partial response to the need for a textbook for students, both in and out of government, that would pro vide a comprehensive view of information science as a fundamental constitu ent of other more established disciplines with a unity and coherence distinct from computer science, cognitive science, and library science although it is related to all of them. Driven by the advances of information technology, the perception of information science has progressed rapidly: today it seems well understood that information processing biological organisms and informa tion processing electronic machines have something basic in common that may subsume the theory of computation, as well as fundamental parts of physics. This book is primarily intended as a text for an advanced undergraduate or a graduate introduction to information science. The multidisciplinary nature of the subject has naturally led to the inclusion of a considerable amount of background material in various fields. The reader is likely to fmd the treat ment relatively oversimplified in fields with which he is familiar and, perhaps, somewhat heavier sailing in less familiar waters. The theme of common principles among seemingly unrelated applications provides the connective tissue for the diverse topics covered in the text and, I hope, justifies the variable level of presentation. Some of the material appears here for the first time.
