My absolute ideals of feminie beauty

Published October 18, 2007 by axinia

They are only two of them, my absolute ideals of feminine beauty.

The fist one – the “physical” beauty of Aishwarya Rai. She is absolute perfect in my eyes! And it is not by chance that she is Indian – as I wrote in my earlier post The image of the primordial woman” – since my childhood I considered Indian beauty as the ultimate. But I am not alone.

What is the stunning beauty? How do we know it is beautiful and not just lovely, sweet, amazing, cute? The mystery unfolds very simple: you get absolutely thoughtless when you see the true beauty.

Your thoughts vanish and you are speechless in front of the revelation of God’s power. You find yourself in REALITY as there is no past and no future in your head in this moment.

The fashion industry – apart from making us wear the same colors and offering far less variety – cries out the ego-busting and humiliating slogans. Making us look cheap and depressed. Poor. Lifeless.

Ten years ago I heard in one speech of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi that western cloths are actually rather ugly and poor, it looks like variety but it is not. And the Indian sari is such a masterpiece of an everlasting beauty. At that time I could not but disagree as I was very much into fashion and designer stuff, hungrily catching every news from the catwalk. Time passed, and I managed to visit the fabulous land of incsent-flavoured India and to experience the magic of sari… Read the rest of this entry →
