1) Creating in Padlet
||Instead of using Padlet to teach
K-12 students to write poems,
for part 2,
decided on a wider audience
"Albert Einstein & Wisdom Mudra"
is a better topic to inspire older people. When I taught this seminar
(January 14-16, 1980) to 20 engineering students at WPI,
engaged and enthusiastic. Some went to museums,
portraits of inventors & creative people
in the wisdom mudra pose.
In addition to my slide show of Buddha and Christ in this gesture,
I taped two dozen pages
of artists and scientists in this mudra pose
along with inspiring quotes from their writings for them to read.
Looking around the room, noticed most of the students have their
thumbs touching their forefingers, hoping the wisdom mudra will
enhance their creativity. It helped with my
protein predictions work.
2) Topics for Discussion
3) Buddha & Christ in Mudra Poses
Meditative poses for Buddha in the
chin mudra (thumb
toucing index finger)
and Christ in the shuni mudra
(thumb touching middle finger), may teach us to do
likewise, if we wish to experience transcendence
or Christ's "Father in Heaven".
When one's angry with another, they may slap or
use their fist to hit their opponent.
But you can't fight
in the wisdom mudra pose. Painter with paintbrush,
poet & pen, conductor with baton are creative activities.
4) Great Scientists in Wisdom Mudra Pose
Here are the greatest scientists of all time Copernicus, who revolutionized science
with his Heliocentric theory, a paradigm shift that the Sun is not
going around the Earth, but vice versa. Galileo, considered the father of modern science,
with better telescope, seeing craters on the Moon & the satellites of Jupiter.
Sir Isaac Newton, discverer of gravity and the laws of motion.
James Clerk Maxwell, siscover of electro-magnetism & the
four Maxwell Equations. Albert Einstein, discover of
Relativity and E=mc2. Amazing these five scientists are in the
wisdom mudra pose. Since this is a peaceful gesture, it helps us to calm our
mind, that leads to abundant creativity and new discoveries.
4) Great Artists in Wisdom Mudra Pose
his 9th Symphony (1824)
Albrecht Dürer's "Self-portrait, Study of a Hand and a Pillow" (1493)
was done at age 22. The head and hand were preparatory for his
of the Artist Holding a Thistle" (Louvre, Paris), considered the earliest painted Self-Portrait (1493).
The wisdom mudra is shown in Dürer's right hand in the "Thistle" portrait,
and in his left hand in the "Pillow" portrait. Dürer's confidence is
evident in these portraits, that led him to be one of the greatest artists during the European Renaissance movement.
Beethoven is considered music's greatest composer. When writing music or condcting with a baton,
his fingers are in the wisdom mudra. Poems of E.E. Cummings uplift us to the cosmic dimension,
such as his Poem XLVI
in 1x1 (1944) "open your heart: / i'll give you a treasure / of tiniest world /
a piece of forever..." Found photo of Cummings with his left hand in wisdom mudra.
Architect Frank Lloyd writing, and Martha Graham dancing, both with wisdom mudra in their
