Henry, a Chinese American, is explaining some complex points of Buddhism to Phil, an American, but he can't get the point across in English in a way that would allow Phil to understand it the same way he does in Mandarin. Phil thinks he understands it but Henry insists that it's not the same. Devils diver men from the [right] way while they think they are rightly guided What is more valuable in a translation: preserving word-for-word meaning or preserving the meaning implied in the original language Chapter 6: The Wise or The Wise Man Verse 89 Al-Zukhruf 43:33 "The craving of one given to heedless living grows like a creeper. Like the monkey seeking fruits in the forest, he leaps from life to life (tasting the fruit of his kamma)." Buddhism originated in a time in which traditional religious ideas were being questioned, during the 6th century B.C.E. Gautama's father surrounded him with a palace of luxuries to distract him from his preoccupation with spiritual problems such as suffering and death, but he denounced it to search for answers. Since then, hundreds of different bible versions have been created for different languages, sects of Christianity, and interpretations.

South Bend, IN: Greenlawn, 1986. Print. We will be talking about Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam and how the translations of their holy books could alter how they are interpreted.

We apologize in advance, as our intention is only to inform and we don't want to offend anyone or their religions.

Transcript: Twelve Tone In History: Pachelbel Persuasive Messages vs. Absolute Music English Fly, thought, on wings of gold; go settle upon the slopes and the hills, where, soft and mild, the sweet airs of our native land smell fragrant! Greet the banks of the Jordan and Zion's toppled towers... Oh, my country, so beautiful and lost! Oh, remembrance, so dear and so fatal! Golden harp of the prophetic seers, why dost thou hang mute upon the willow? Rekindle our bosom's memories, and speak to us of times gone by! Mindful of the fate of Jerusalem, give forth a sound of crude lamentation, or may the Lord inspire you a harmony of voices which may instill virtue to suffering. IN HISTORY "Music for music's sake" Creation for pure enjoyment, has no real meaning behind it Justin Bieber Absolute Music Guiseppe Verdi - "Va, Pensiero" - Nabucco sometimes considered to be a rallying-cry for Italians to throw off the yoke of Austrian domination (in the north) and French domination (near Rome) the "Risorgimento" Following unification, Verdi was awarded a seat in the national parliament. Italian Va, pensiero, sull'ali dorate; va, ti posa sui clivi, sui colli, ove olezzano tepide e molli l'aure dolci del suolo natal! Del Giordano le rive saluta, di Sionne le torri atterrate... O, mia patria, sì bella e perduta! O, membranza, sì cara e fatal! Arpa d'or dei fatidici vati, perché muta dal salice pendi? Le memorie nel petto raccendi, ci favella del tempo che fu! O simile di Sòlima ai fati traggi un suono di crudo lamento, o t'ispiri il Signore un concento che ne infonda al patire virtù.
