Comptes Rendus de l’Acad. Sanctuaire de Sousse, p. Representations of Baal Hammon, Chief God of Carthage by Louis Foucher Professor at the Faculty of Letters of the University of Tours We are comparatively ill informed about the deities worshipped by the early Phoenicians when they came from the East to set up trading posts, great and small, along the maritime highway which took them as far as Caries in Spain. These sailors and salesmen must primarily have invoked the gods who could ensure them a safe voyage, permitting them to defy storms or to evade rocks, and to gain hospitable havens which would shelter them alike from the hostility of nature and of man. Such, doubtless, was the substance of the prayers they addressed to the god Resheph, whose statuette was recovered from the sea near Selinunte in The foundation of Carthage at the end of the ninth century B. No longer did merchants set up temporary trading posts, many of them going back to spend their old age in Tyre, where they had left their families.

The present state of the road to the Stanthorpe cemetery is disgraceful, and requires immediate attention, to say nothing of the fact, that up to the present time, no steps have been taken to fence the ground in. The principal part of the road requiring repair, is a swampy crossing, close to the burying ground, where it is a matter of impossibility for a funeral to cross at all in wet weather, and now it is necessary to travel a great distance around to avoid this dangerous place.

Other spots in the road are almost impassable, while a trifling outlay would make all the necessary repairs.

Diamond Realm Mandala , based on the tantric Vajrasekhara Sutra , and symbolizing the final realization of Vairocana Buddha in Shingon. Earlier Mahayana sutras already contained some elements which are emphasized in the Tantras, such as mantras and dharani. The dating of the tantras is “a difficult, indeed an impossible task” according to David Snellgrove.

Later monastic Vajrayana Buddhists reinterpreted and internalized these radically transgressive and taboo practices as metaphors and visualization exercises. Later tantras such as the Hevajra Tantra and the Chakrasamvara are classed as “Yogini tantras” and represent the final form of development of Indian Buddhist tantras in the ninth and tenth centuries. Davidson, the rise of Tantric Buddhism was a response to the feudal structure of Indian society in the early medieval period ca. A comparison of them shows similarity in “ritual procedures, style of observance, deities, mantras, mandalas, ritual dress, Kapalika accoutrements, specialized terminology, secret gestures, and secret jargons.

There is even direct borrowing of passages from Saiva texts. The importance of the theory of emptiness is central to the Tantric view and practice. Buddhist emptiness sees the world as being fluid, without an ontological foundation or inherent existence but ultimately a fabric of constructions. Because of this, tantric practice such as self-visualization as the deity is seen as being no less real than everyday reality, but a process of transforming reality itself, including the practitioner’s identity as the deity.

As Stephan Beyer notes, “In a universe where all events dissolve ontologically into Emptiness, the touching of Emptiness in the ritual is the re-creation of the world in actuality”. Negative mental factors such as desire, hatred, greed, pride are not rejected as in non Tantric Buddhism, but are used as part of the path. As noted by French Indologist Madeleine Biardeau, tantric doctrine is “an attempt to place kama, desire, in every meaning of the word, in the service of liberation.

The zone is heavily covered with calcite. It is not possible to determine whether the front of this animal existed at one time. Length ca 40 cm. I had noticed in several images that the artist s used natural irregularities in the surfaces to emphasize a three-dimensional appearance. I wonder if some of the odd placements of the figures is because the artist saw something to add to the realism of his picture. So when I saw the ‘headless’ ibex, I immediately thought that the other side of the crevice suggested the head.
