The third studio album by Canadian rock band Red Rider, Neruda, was released in 1983. Pablo Neruda, a Chilean poet, inspired the album's title. Neruda died before hearing how his words affected people, but his spirit lives on through those who have listened to his music.
He is also known for his love poems which often include hearts and flowers as well as other figures from history.
Neruda means "my poet" in Spanish.
He was born on January 14th, 1905 in Malaga, Spain. His father was a wealthy tobacco merchant who moved the family to Chile when Neruda was still a child. He grew up in poverty, and for a time had no access to education.
When he was 19 years old, Neruda traveled to Peru where he worked as a photographer's assistant for six months. This experience helped him earn some money and learn new techniques. Back in Chile, he published his first collection of poems, Cien Sonetos ("One Hundred Sonnets"), which attracted much attention from critics and readers.
In 1933, Neruda married Margarita Vialova. The couple had three children: Pablo, Angela, and Nicolas.
Garuda is a Hindu mythological bird with eagle and human characteristics. He is Vishnu's chariot (vahana) and appears on the god's flag. Garuda is the opponent of all snakes and signifies birth and paradise.
The name Garuda comes from the Sanskrit words garu "eagle" and deva "god". It also may have been inspired by the Egyptian goddess Neith, who was associated with wisdom and science.
Garuda's appearance is said to have saved Vishnu from being eaten by the demon Narasimha. For this reason, he has become one of Vishnu's emblems.
There are many stories about how Garuda came to be. Usually, they tell of an Indian king named Chakrayudhha who sacrificed himself to save his people from destruction. Before he died, he ordered that a vehicle should be built to fly through the air so that people could reach salvation even if the demons killed them. His son Acyuta then continued his father's work and created eight such vehicles called vahanas. They included Garuda as well as other vehicles for other gods.
In some versions of the story, Chakrayudhha is not dead but instead he is just sleeping. In others, he has been replaced by his son Acyuta.
In Hindu mythology, a Garuda is a legendary bird that is supposed to represent Vishnu's steed or chariot, known as a vahana. Garuda, like the eagle, signifies power, concentration, and the capacity to see clearly. He is sometimes shown with a snake in his jaws, symbolizing eating or killing evil in the world. When viewed from a distance, he is said to have nine tails.
As a spiritual experience, seeing God or some aspect of God can be referred to as "garudalingam." The term "garudalingam" comes from the combination of two words: garu meaning peacock and dalai meaning Lord (or god). Thus, it means "peacock deity."
In Tamil Nadu state in India, there are many temples where one can see the peacock-like chariot of the god Murugan being pulled by horses. These are called "garu duels" and people come from all over the world to watch them. One such temple is called Thirukkarapurayil Temple in Tiruchirappalli. It is said that if you ride in the caravel-shaped vehicle drawn by these horses, you will be able to go to any place in the world within one hour.
Seeing God or a divine figure isn't always about having a religious experience. Some people see angels, saints, or other divine figures when they are very high up on a mountain or in a cathedral.
Naomhan (pronounced ['nGi: wa: nG]; meaning "saintly, holy," "small saint," or "follower of the saint") was an Irish folklore minor saint. His name is rarely used as a boy's given name. However, it is popular in South Korea where it is applied to children who have no known surname but who are believed to be descendants of Naomhan.
In Gaelic, his name means "little saint."
He is mentioned in the Book of Armagh as one of the few saints whose relics were preserved in Ireland after the arrival of the English. The shrine of Neachtain in Lough Derg is said to be his burial place. A column at the site bears an inscription in Latin saying that this is where "the body of Saint Neachtaíon, once covered with sainted flesh, now lies buried in the earth, but his soul is in heaven with God."
The earliest record of the name comes from a list of Irish saints made about 813 by Bishop Fiacc of Limerick. It appears on a mural monument near Dalkey Island, Dublin Bay, which is dated based on other events listed on it. This tells us that the name was already being used extensively around Dublin city when it first appeared on the list and suggests that it may have been popular among the clergy for some time before then.
Garuda, the king of birds in Hinduism, is a heavenly eagle-like sunbird. He is characterized as the chariot mount of the Hindu deity Vishnu, and they are frequently seen together.
Garuda is one of the epithets of Vishnu used to describe him as his vehicle during battle with demons. The other two popular epithets are "Narasimha" (meaning "man-lion") and "Vishnu".
In Hindu mythology, Garuda is associated with intelligence, knowledge, courage, beauty, strength, medicine, music, dance, art, architecture, philosophy, spirituality, and aviation.
He has been described as the son of Vinata and Vasudeva, and the brother of Subhadra and Madira. After the death of his father, he became the king of birds and married Tara, the goddess of beauty. They had a son named Sampati who was taught everything by his mother. When Sampati grew up, he went to fight against the asuras (demons) and killed them all except for Mahiravana who took away Garuda's life but not his wings. Before he died, Garuda obtained a boon that he would be restored if anyone could find his body.
Neaera was a nymph of the fabled island of Thrinakia (Thrinacia) who was adored by Helios, the sun god. Neaira's name derives from the Greek words neos, which means "new," and aeiro, which means "to rise." She was most likely a minor morning goddess, akin to Eos.
In Roman mythology, Neaera was one of the many daughters of Numa Pompilius and Aurunca. Like many other girls born into noble families, she was given as a wedding gift to the consul Lucius Junius Pennus Porcius. However, after becoming pregnant, Neaera had her husband-to-be declared incapable of having children due to his recent marriage ceremony and was then sent back home. Pennus later died in battle against the Latins near the Rubicon River. Although this story is not confirmed by any sources, it is believed that Neaera may have committed suicide shortly after her father.
In early Christianity, Neaera was regarded as a goddess because she was said to have brought dawn to the world when she were married to Pennus. This identification with Eos dates back to at least A.D. 300 when Neaera appears on a statue base in Italy. Eventually, she became associated with Lucifer during the early days of Christendom and was banned by the Catholic Church in 1669.
Nowadays, Neaera is only known through ancient writings.
