Karma and Eugenics

The concept of karma can be interpreted, or sometimes misinterpreted, so that it appears to oppose eugenics. Karma holds that misfortunes in this life are due to harmful actions in a former life (although there are also social sources of unfavorable karma). By this interpretation, if a child is born with a genetic disorder, then the misfortune is due to previous voluntary actions that harmed others and hence is deserved. Furthermore, this karma must be worked off the suffering must be endured to expiate the previous wrongdoing. If the suffering is prevented, it will simply occur later. Thus, if a fetus with Down syndrome is aborted, the same individual will simply be reincarnated later with a similar affliction. The idea that suffering should not be relieved, because karmically deserved, is widespread in India and Buddhist countries and is sometimes articulated by Buddhist teachers in the West. It is a misunderstanding of the Buddha's teaching, which was concerned to explain the way...

Death and Rebirth

Shamans' training generally includes a death and rebirth experience, an initiatory crisis typically involving illness and suffering from attacks by spirits that lead to the experience of death. This is followed by descent to a lower world where spirits and animals attack and destroy the victim's body. The initiate is then reconstructed with the addition of spirit allies that provide powers. The death and rebirth experience reflects processes of self-transformation that occur under conditions of overwhelming stress and conflicts that result in fragmentation of the conscious ego (Walsh, 1990). The experiences are autosymbolic images reflecting the breakdown and disintegration of psychological structures (Laughlin, McManus, & d'Aquili, 1992). The death and rebirth cycle reflects a fragmentation of the conscious ego and self, experienced symbolically as death and their reformation guided by innate drives toward psychological integration. Shamanic ritual processes manipulate symbolic...

Introduction to Biotechnology

The history of human achievement has always been episodic. For a while, one particular field of endeavour seems to hold sway as the preserve of genius and development, before the focus shifts and development forges ahead in dizzy exponential rush in an entirely new direction. So it was with art in the renaissance, music in the 18th century, engineering in the 19th and physics in the 20th. Now it is the age of the biological, possibly best viewed almost as a rebirth, after the great heyday of the Victorian naturalists, who provided so much input into the developing science. It is then, perhaps, no surprise that the European Federation of Biotechnology begins its 'Brief History' of the science in the year 1859, with the publication of On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection by Charles Darwin. Though his famous voyage aboard HMS Beagle, which led directly to the formulation of his (then) revolutionary ideas, took place when he was a young man, he had delayed making them...

Personality Differences by Gender

Personality is quite a problematic concept to apply to Balinese ideas of personhood. While differences between individuals are perceived and commented upon, there is a very limited range of possible types and individualism is not encouraged. There is an idea of karma that one's present position is the consequence of past actions and that present actions have implications for the future but this is not an understanding akin to Western-style personality formation as a result of formative psychological experiences. The social ethos is one of group activity, social conformity, and cooperation to get things done. Further, the exigencies of life in very crowded living conditions, where virtually every activity takes place in public, and where the consequences of every action will rebound within one's moral community, are such that people downplay personality differences. That said, differences do attach to gender, as described above for ideal masculinity and femininity.

Flap Classification and Local Facial Flaps

Advancement Flap

Flap classification is based on an evolving paradigm as new uses and new flaps are discovered. The earliest report of a facial flap (the midline forehead flap) is found in the Sushruta Samhita, a Hindu holy book, in 600 bce (1). Flap development was largely ignored or relegated to the unholy in the period between the emergence of Buddhism in India to the 16th century (2). In the 1500s, Tagliacozzi perfected the arm-pedicled technique of nasal reconstruction that became known as the Italian method. The Hindu method was introduced to English speaking society by B.L. in a letter to the Gentleman's Magazine in London in 1794 (3). This spawned a new era and signaled the rebirth of reconstructive surgery (4).

Gender and Religion

Some Manjako of both sexes receive signs such as recurrent illness or extraordinary happenings that they are to become a healer-diviner (napene). Through a long series of rituals culminating in death and rebirth they develop the ability to see and communicate with bush spirits, who help them in their practice. They are more often male than female, though many women are successful diviners. Female diviners tend to specialize in fertility problems and children's health.

Approaches to Buddhist Bioethics

Buddhist ethical perspectives, unlike some Western views, seldom characterize morality in absolute terms. For Buddhists, ethical behavior is a necessary component of successful adherence to the Dharma rather than an end in itself. Once enlightenment is attained, dualities expressed in ethical problems cease to exist. Action is judged not against an absolute moral standard (such as the Ten Commandments), but rather on the basis of its relative merit in leading toward or away from enlightenment. From an enlightened perspective, actions can no longer be characterized as moral or immoral. Rather, action (karma) has a neutral value, transcending moral distinctions. As such, ethics are important to the spiritual practice of human beings, but they have no larger significance.

Gender over the Life Cycle

The birth of a boy, who continues a father's patriline, is more celebrated than that of a girl, who is given away in marriage. Otherwise, there is little overt difference by gender in the treatment of young children (Rohner & Chaki-Sircar, 1988 Seymour, 1999). For upper-caste males, however, there is an idealized four-stage life cycle (the dharmasastras) outlined in Hindu ethical-legal texts (1) celibate student, (2) married householder, (3) disengaged forest dweller, and (4) wandering mendicant (sannyasi) preparing for death and potential release (moksha) from the cycle of rebirth. Women and lower-caste males have less well-defined life stages. For upper-status females the onset of menarche marks the beginning of restrictions on behavior and change of dress. Marriage overtly defines the transition from childhood to adulthood, and old age is marked by a reduction in work and the receipt of care from others. Throughout life, regardless of gender, one is either a caregiver or a...

Products and Byproducts

All the ratites yield feathers at slaughter. Unless there is a rebirth of the millinery trade, the main outlet for the feathers will be costume and jewelry production. Producers often offer for sale blown-out eggs. The eggs are sought after by artists known as eggers who use eggs as their medium.

Reproduction in Hindu Religious

The Indian concept of karma, which is fundamental to all its philosophical and religious systems, has some similarities to modern genetics. It is a law of moral cause and effect. The literal meaning of karma is action, and the theory holds that one's present state is the result of personal and collective actions in this and previous lives. Actions, like genes, have effects that persist across lifetimes. Much of each individual's present circumstances are the result of previous actions carried across generations. Karma and scientific genetics seek to account for the human experience that the past tends to repeat itself in the present. Both offer an explanation of how an individual comes to have certain traits.

The Concept Of Selfwilled Death In Hinduism

According to the traditional law books, funeral rituals were not to be performed for those who died in unnatural ways. This may have been used as a deterrent against suicide the Hindu tradition disapproved of suicide, which was defined as killing oneself because of depression, passion, or uncontrollable circumstance. But unnatural death was not always viewed negatively death by violence (war, murder, or accident) was viewed as powerful, leading to heaven or deification. The type of unnatural death that has relevance for bioethics is the self-willed death, which is given religious sanction. During the late classical and medieval periods, Hinduism came to accept a rational decision either (1) to kill oneself as a way to destroy bad karma, create good karma, and thus attain heaven or liberation or (2) if liberated in life, to remove the body. Such self-willed death (igfamftyu), took many forms. People could walk without food or drink until they dropped dead (mahaprasthana) bury...

Cross Cultural Perspectives on Shamans

Cross-cultural research (Winkelman 1986a, 1990, 1992) indicates a core set of characteristics associated with healing practitioners of hunter-gatherer societies. In addition to the ecstasy (ASC), spirit world interaction, and community relations emphasized by Eliade, other characteristics of shamans include soul journey or flight, soul loss and recovery, death and rebirth, hunting magic, and other therapeutic processes. Shamans are found among hunter-gatherers and societies with limited agriculture or pastoral subsistence patterns and political integration limited to the local community. Shamans provide healing, divination, and charismatic leadership. Shamans are also capable of malevolent acts, or sorcery. Characteristics of shamans include training and professional practice based upon the use of ASC a soul flight ASC and soul recovery their transformation into animals and control of animal spirits death and rebirth experiences and the provision of hunting magic and assistance in...

Healing and Cultural Reality

Establishing this connectedness does not make of the healer a great person but does place both healer and patient in the presence of a deep human mystery that is greater than both of them. It is to be present at a creation that Elaine Scarry likens to the rediscovery of language Physical pain is not only itself resistant to language but also actively destroys language, deconstructing it into the pre-language of cries and groans. To hear those cries is to witness the shattering of language. Conversely, to be present when the person in pain rediscovers speech and so regains his powers of self-objectification is almost to be present at the birth, or rebirth, of language (p. 172).

Reasoned Suicide and Mental Health

The aim of the idealized ascetic to attain release and end the cycle of rebirth provided an acceptable rationale for suicide in highly selected circumstances. Sallekhand is a Jain practice sanctioned for elderly mendicants involving ritual fasting that ends in death its aim is for the individual to meet the final moment with utmost tranquillity (Settar). The Dharmasastra literature, which outlines Hindu codes of conduct, also refers to another form of religious suicide, the great journey, justified by incurable disease or great misfortune (Kane). Those who undertake this ultimate renunciation in the final stage of life proceed in a northeasterly direction, subsisting on water and air, until his body sinks to rest (The Laws of Manu, 6. 31). Other means of accomplishing religiously motivated suicides include jumping from a height (bhrgupata), often associated with pilgrimage sites where these suicides were most frequent, such as Sravana Belgola, west of Bangalore in South India, and...

Contemporary Shamanic Illness and Healing

The psychobiological basis of the shamanistic paradigm is revealed in its persistence in contemporary religious experiences (Stark, 1997) and psychological crises. Shamanic dynamics are reflected in the DSM-IV category spiritual emergencies, which includes spontaneous shamanic journeys possession the death and rebirth experience mystical experiences with psychotic features and experiences of psychic abilities (Walsh, 1990). The shamanic paradigm provides a useful framework for addressing these experiences as natural manifestations of human consciousness, and as developmental opportunities rather than pathologies. This reformulation permits addressing these powerful unconscious dynamics as opportunities for transformation to greater health, just as the shamanic initiatory crisis provides transformational potentials. Crisis experiences associated with shamanism attacks by spirits, death and dismemberment, depersonalization, and out-of-body experiences can be interpreted within the...

Historical Background

Bioethics as a field might not have emerged so strongly or insistently had it not been for parallel cultural developments. The decade was the spawning ground for a dazzling array of social and cultural reform efforts. It saw a rebirth, within the discipline of moral philosophy, of an interest in normative and applied ethics, both out of a dissatisfaction with the prevailing academic emphasis on theoretical issues and in response to cultural upheavals. It was the era of the civil-rights movement, which gave African Americans and other people of color new rights and possibilities. It was the era that saw the rebirth of feminism as a potent social movement, and the extension to women of rights often previously denied them. It was the era that saw a fresh surge of individualism a by-product in many ways of postwar affluence and mobility and the transformation of many traditional institutions, including the family, the churches, and the schools. It was an era that came to see the enormous...

Hinduism And Buddhism

Hinduism and Buddhism both arose in India and share many common beliefs, such as the doctrine of karma (discussed below), yet the differences between the two religions must not be underestimated. Generally speaking, Hinduism is a legalistic religion and pays great attention to regulating life in the world. Buddhism sees worldly life as secondary in importance attainment of release from suffering in this or subsequent existences is its central concern.

The Classic Studies Religion Ritual and the Social

Grounded in the work of Tylor, Frazer, and Durkheim on the origins and social function of religion, the anthropology of death developed around the task of describing normative funeral and mourning rituals in pre-literate societies. Analysis aimed to illustrate ways in which particular rites enabled the transfer of the soul from one realm to another and reinforced social solidarity. Durkheim's student, Robert Hertz (1907 1960) in his study of secondary burial rituals, set the standard for anthropological considerations of the corpse and its treatment, the soul, ritual practices of mourners, and relationships among them. His work emphasized the following death does not coincide with the destruction of an individual's life death is a social event and the beginning of a ceremonial process by which the dead person becomes an ancestor and finally, death is an initiation into an afterlife, a rebirth. His insights about death as passage from one classificatory status to another remained...

Nemesis or Shiva

Appropriate to name the star after Shiva, a Hindu deity associated, like Nemesis, with destruction but also with rebirth. Intrigued by this image, a few years ago I asked Jeanine Schotsmans, a curator at the Brussels museum, to lend me one of her superb photographs of a Shiva sculpted on the walls of the Temple of Ajanta in India, in the very lava that I believe may have been at least partly responsible for the massacre of the dinosaurs (Fig. 7.3). I suggested to the editors of Nature that they should put this photograph on the cover of the issue in which our first argon datings of the traps were published.17 An accompanying caption (with a wink to Stephen Gould) was unfortunately omitted by the journal's editors. A good many readers of Nature must have wondered what this divinity was doing on the cover of their magazine.

Jainism

One of the world's oldest religions, Jainism is also distinguished as one of the faiths that cares the most about nonhuman animals. It is a religion without God that yet holds that our souls can become gods through liberation. It is said that our souls accumulate karman particles through both good and bad actions, which make good or bad things, respectively, happen to us in turn. The goal is to cease all passions and actions that generate good and bad karma, as these particles literally make us too heavy to leave the realm of rebirth. The soul that has escaped the cycle of rebirth ascends to a permanent resting place at the very apex of the Jaina universe. The key to achieving divine liberation is by practicing ahimsa, or avoiding injury to all life. The positive side of this is a reverence for all life (See RELIGION AND ANIMALS, Reverence for Life) or a universal love for all creatures. Inflicting injury on these creatures is wrong because of the suffering* caused, and also because...

Other Religions

Ascetics have few or no possessions and must beg for food. Some choose in old age to die through ritual fasting. Most Jainas are not ascetics, although some strive to imitate monastic ideals by pursuing a progressive path of renunciation, leading to rebirth as an ascetic. The non-monastic Jaina community practices vegetarianism and opposes the killing of animals. Because of this, agricultural and military occupations are not suitable to Jainas, who historically have chosen instead to enter the professions or to take up business interests.

Puberty Rites

Puberty rites vary widely across cultures because different environments demand the cultivation of different skills and behaviors, but some general patterns emerge (J. W. M. Whiting, Kluckholn & Anthony, 1958). Initiates typically are tutored in sex-specific adult economic, familial, and cultural skills. The same-sex parent is usually the main teacher of subsistence skills, but the initiate is tutored by some other same-sex adult in social and ceremonial matters (Schlegel & Barry, 1991). Puberty rites usually entail some challenging ordeal that boys, in particular, must endure (Schlegel & Barry, 1980). Ordeals may be used to subdue recalcitrant youths, who are more likely to be boys, as in the Hopi (G. E. Weisfeld, 1999). This is analogous to the more rigorous competition that males of most species, as opposed to females, undergo to enter the breeding pool. Boys will also have to hone their economic skills in order to compete for a wife. Consistent with this interpretation,...

Hindu Worldview

The doctrine of transmigration is a definitive concept for Hinduism. It postulates the existence of an innermost self (atman) for all beings, ranging from the highest god to the meanest insect, that is essentially immutable. By becoming incarnate, this self becomes further involved with matter, which some philosophical systems hold to be fundamentally illusory and others regard as the primordial source of intellect, ego, elements, and the material world. According to the conduct of the embodied being, the soul or self is carried at death to another body, in which it flourishes or suffers according to previous behavior (the law of karma). This process is called samsara. From an outsider's perspective, the force of karma operates as a tangible manifestation of an ethical system associated with principles of righteous conduct and moral values inherent in the concept of dharma, a difficult-to-translate term that embodies cosmic order, sacred law, and religious duty. Within the system,...

Judaism

A related argument is that cloning is worrisome in that it fuels a kind of narcissistic fascination with the idea of escaping or cheating death. As such, cloning holds out the promise of rebirth, a second chance for the self to live a better, fuller life. Yet this promise is illusory, and so the quest to clone is a self-deceptive journey and one that distracts humans from pressing moral commitments here and now for example, the pursuit of justice in healthcare.

Buddhism

Later, on the verge of enlightenment, he recalled his own previous lives, meditated on the cycles of rebirth common to all creatures, and came to understand that all beings are propelled into repeated lives by ignorance and desire. The Buddha spent his life teaching others how to blow out (nibbana) the flame of ignorance and desire by realizing that all beings are composite and impermanent (subject to suffering, decay, and death). In the final analysis, there was no person who died there was only the process of dying. As narrated in the Mahaparinibbana Sutta, written down about the first century b.c.e., the Buddha attained final release from his body (parinibbana) at the age of eighty. After falling ill, he chose the time and place of his departure Telling those present that all composite things must pass away and advising them to strive diligently for liberation, he meditated with complete equanimity and took his last breath. Despite the Buddha's emphasis on liberation,...

Hindu Medicine

Although karma, demons, and deities may also play a role in producing ill health, it is a relatively minor role in the medical texts and more of a concern in other settings. The role of a physician practicing Ayurveda is to restore the harmony of humoral balance with medicines, purification, massage, diet, and directives for appropriate lifestyle. Experience with an exceptionally wide pharmacopoeia and careful observations of the symptomatology, clinical course, and treatment response of various diseases especially chronic conditions for which Western medicine does not provide a clearly superior alternative have enabled practitioners of the system to maintain the respect of a large number of South Asians who continue to use it.

Hinduism

In Hinduism there is no single view of other animals. The different views are dominated by two general beliefs that govern the ways in which other animals are conceived. First, human beings, though recognized to be in a continuum (see CONTINUITY) with other animals, are considered the model of what biological life should be. A corollary of this first belief is the claim that the status human is far above the status of any other animal. The second general belief is that any living being's current position in the cycle of life (created by repeated incarnations) is determined by the strict law of karma. Belief in reincarnation is the hallmark of most, though not all, Hindus' beliefs. These two beliefs have resulted in other animals being viewed with uncertainty. Positively, other animals have been understood to have souls just as do humans. Negatively, they have been understood to be inferior to any human, a corollary of which is the belief that the existence of other animals must be...
