DAILY WISDOM

Vegetarian diet is not only healthier but also gives a calmer and brighter mind. Vegetarians live longer, have more vital energy and are more intelligent. Einstein and many other great thinkers were indeed vegetarian too.

Pauranic Prana-aesthetics, a finer shade different from that of vitalistic aesthetics )the earlier having breathing-rhythm of "Ksaya-Vrddhi"--diminuation and augmentation--other than the latter`s emphasis only on the rhythm of augmentation), has been delineated in this study with examples from the world`s two of the best art-monuments: Ajanta (India), now not remaining unknown even to the most casual connoisseur, and Sopocani (Yugoslavia), the most significant and monumentally beautiful work of Byzantine art. Tracing Prana-aesthetics as the aesthetics of inner-light coded in the creeper-motif by the artists of Ajanta, this work emphasises decoding of the creeper-motif by Byzantine artists culminating into the frescoes of Sopocani done in Hellenistic-Byzantine aesthetics beatifield by Hesycast meditation to which that of Buddhists was not unknown. Comparisons of various determinant aspects, aesthetics and artistic denominators, and constraints not allowing similar consummation are properly investigated to substantiate the thesis that Prana-aesthetics transfigures at Ajanta but transubstantiates at Sopocani. The significance of the anabolic aspects of this aesthetics is highlighted especially as a way out from the reductivistic tendencies of the present day visual-arts straining them upto the stage of catabolic dissolution. DR. OM D. UPADHYA, Associate Professor and Head, Department of Fine Art (Drawing & Painting), has won scholarship of the Government of Yugoslavia for obtaining his Master Painter degree in Fresco painting and Mosaics at the University of Fine Arts, Belgrade. He has been teaching higher classes in art since 1961 in theory and practice courses. Being a working artist and a theoretician, his basic concept of teaching art is to integrate the history of art, aesthetics and the practice of art in a prescriptive manner. He has been participated and won recognition in various exhibitions, and has designed murals in India and abroad. To his credit are a number of papers on art at national and international seminars and in journals.
