Today’s Holiday: Narasimha Jayanti


Today’s Holiday:
Narasimha Jayanti

In Hindu mythology, this is the day on which Vishnu appeared as the Narasimha, or Man-Lion, to free the world from the demon king, Hiranyakasipu. The king was very annoyed to discover that his own son, Prahlada, was an ardent devotee of Vishnu. Then the king tried to kill Prahlada, but Vishnu appeared in the form of Narsimha and tore the king to pieces. On this day, Hindus fast, meditate, and pray for the spiritual fortitude of Prahlada. Sometimes they demonstrate the depth of their devotion by giving cows, grain, gold, robes, and other goods to the poor and the Brahmans as acts of charity.

Article of the Day: The Arnolfini Portrait


Article of the Day:
The Arnolfini Portrait

The Arnolfini Portrait (1434) by Jan van Eyck is considered one of the most original and complex paintings in Western art history. It depicts a wealthy merchant, long thought to be Giovanni Arnolfini, and his wife. The incredible detail, realism, and use of light make this work remarkable, but it also stands out for the debate that it has inspired over the symbolism of certain elements, including the one lit candle in the chandelier, van Eyck’s unusually placed signature, and what else?

  1. 2 of 5
    When I was a little baby, my mother rocked me in the cradle,
    In them ole cotton fields back home
    When I was a little baby, my mother rocked me in the cradle,
    In them ole cotton fields back home

    Oh when them cotton balls get rotten, you can’t pick very much cotton,
    In them ole cotton fields back home
    It was down in Louisiana, just a mile from Texarkana,
    In them ole cotton fields back home

    It may sound a little funny, but you didn’t make very much money,
    In them ole cotton fields back home
    It may sound a little funny, but you didn’t make very much money,
    In them ole cotton fields back home

    Oh when them cotton balls get rotten, you can’t pick very much cotton,
    In them ole cotton fields back home
    It was down in Louisiana, just a mile from Texarkana,
    In them ole cotton fields back home

    I was home in Arkansas, people ask me what you come here for,
    In them ole cotton fields back home
    I was home in Arkansas, people ask me what you come here for,

[Chorus]
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan
Riders on the storm

[Verse 1]
There’s a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin’ like a toad
Take a long holiday
Let your children play
If you give this man a ride
Sweet family will die
Killer on the road

[Verse 2]
Girl you gotta love your man
Girl you gotta love your man
Take him by the hand
Make him understand
The world on you depends
Our life will never end
Gotta love your man

[Chorus]
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm

  1. 2 of 5
    Many years ago in days of childhood
    I used to play till evenin’ shadows come
    Then windin’ down that old familiar pathway
    I’d hear my mother call at set of sun

    Come home, come home it’s supper time
    The shadows lengthen fast
    Come home, come home it’s supper time
    We’re going home at last

    Some of the fondest memories of my childhood
    Were woven around supper time
    When my mother used to call
    From the backsteps of the old homeplace
    “Come on home now son, it’s supper time”

    Ah, but I’d love to hear that once more
    But you know for me time has woven the realization of
    The truth that’s even more thrilling and that’s when
    The call come up from the portals of glory
    To come home, for it’s supper time

    When all of God’s children
    Shall gather around the table
    Of the Lord himself
    And the greatest supper time of them all

    Come home, come home, it’s supper time
    The shadows lengthen fast
    Come home, come home, it’s supper time
    We’re going home at last

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’
So hush, little baby, don’t you cry

One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing
And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky
But till that morning, there ain’t nothin’ can harm you
With daddy and mammy standin’ by
One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing
And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky
But till that morning, there ain’t nothin’ can harm you
With daddy and mammy standin’ by
Summertime, and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’
So hush, little baby, don’t you cry
