  • The Importance Of Moral And Spiritual Choices

    Human beings having an absolute free will to choose their moral and spiritual path were taught by Pico della Mirandola. I do not agree with what Pico della Mirandola had taught because human beings do not have absolute free will to choose their moral and spiritual path. Pico della Mirandola once said “therefore, every human being has absolute freedom to choose whatever place in the “great chain of being” he or she may choose.” By saying “great chain of being” Pico della Mirandola is using that to represent the different social classes and where you stand as a human being.

    Imams, Pir Shahbu’d-din Shah continues are the Manifestation of God. “Thus they, the Saints of God, are the manifest form of God (sūrati zāhirī Khudā).” This belief is not exclusive to the Ismaili Faith. Rather, it is a belief shared by other Muslims of Shī`ī persuasion, apparent from a quote by Imam Ja‘far al-Ṣādiq, cited in The Spirituality of Shī`ī Islam: Belief and Practices, by Mohammad Ali Amir-Moezzi: “By God, we are the Most Beautiful Names of God.

  • Pan's Labyrinth Gender Analysis

    Like many forms of folktales, Fairy tales serve as enduring classics which ubiquitously permeate our culture. “Pans Labyrinth” or “El laberinto del fauno” by Guillermo Del Toro is a profound 2006 cinematic film which idiosyncratically serves as a spiritual successor to the traditional fairy tale genre. A dark and forebodingly twisted fantasy---Pan’s labyrinth is set in a period of history when the fascist Franco regime was in power. The underlying patriarchal society, the prominent illustration…
