There is no culture without some wisdom teachings or proverbs. In fact, a culture is incomplete without it. The major distinction is that while some wisdom teaching is documented in some cultures, it is not in others. Nevertheless, the absence of documentation is no evidence of the non-existence of ancient wisdoms and their teaching. Haven given an exposé on what the write-up is all about, I now proceed to discuss ten proverbs in my culture- the Igbo culture and how it influences the philosophy of my people.
There has been debate over this, due to the fact of the land of the Maya being destroyed. One of the fascinating characteristics of the Maya civilization was their architect (1). The Maya were noted for their elaborate and highly decorated ceremonial architecture, including temple-pyramids, palaces and observatories, all built without metal tools. This shows their intelligence and complexity. Of these the pyramids were very notable, according to archaeological evidence; it has been shown that the ancient Mayans began building their characteristic ceremonial structures, known as Mayan Pyramids or Pyramid-Temples, about 3,000 years back.
The cauldron, an image or object which recurrently appears in mythology, is no exception to the aforesaid notion. It has various manifestations in cultures across the globe, and comes with a purpose of its own in different realms and times. Yet, interestingly it has never been subjected to a critical inquiry to understand the scope of its vitality in the area of Mythology. The objective of this project, therefore, is to study cauldrons from world mythology in their varied forms and delve deeper into understanding the reasons for their repetitive and common appearance in them. The project, subsequently, seeks to analyze the symbolic quality of a cauldron and finally contend that it is a prospective archetypal symbol.
The Mayan civilization originated in the southern areas of Mexico at about 2600 B.C. The Mayans were the first heirs of the Olmec’s, the first civilization in Mesoamerica. After the Olmec’s disappearance many different societies arose in Mesoamerica and the human population grew quickly as well. The Mayans settled in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Belize. Guatemala’s fertile soil made agriculture very easy and successful for the Mayans so permanent settlements began to rise.
What is Hindu Dharma? One of the major living religious traditions of the world, Hinduism is also recognized as the most ancient. It is different from most others because it was not started by any single individual, seer or prophet, and its origins cannot be traced to a particular period of human history. It is not based on one single book or a set of dogmas; on the contrary, it allows a great deal of freedom of thought, faith and worship. Hinduism is not a single religious faith system because it does not insist on any fixed set of doctrines.
Hindus believe that their belief system has existed forever and many aspects within their belief system are cyclic in character instead of possessing a beginning, middle and an end, as is common among other belief systems. Given that Hinduism has no single founder or prophet, no one universally accepted holy book or scripture and no exact time in history documenting its origin, many Hindus choose which of many paths and components they believe as accurate or true based on their own region and tradition. The sacred elements chosen contribute to the simplicity or complexity of this ancient belief system while supporting the belief that Hindu practices and rituals among its followers
Lastly, the aspect of karma with respect to the environment will be explored. Hinduism was founded sometime between 1500 and 500 CE in the area of the Indus valley civilization. There is no individual founder and no names given to say who developed it. They are many gods in the religion of Hinduism. Many Hindu followers believe that one of the gods is the true god; this creates a division in Hinduism, Vaishnavaism and Shivaism.
A classless society is a utopian ideal, it has never been reached. The USSR has disintegrated and the Berlin Wall was already felled but a classless society has never been epitomized by any society around the world. The present societies around the world differ in the form of government but they are still governed by different kinds of leaders, some practice monarchy under a king or queen, others use the presidential form of government, while others used the dictatorial form.

An elitist form of government became so because people let themselves be governed by elites.
In addition of having a history of poor political leaders, Somalia does not have a central government. Though attempts have been made to have an established democracy, until today Somalia does not have a controlled administration. As any country’s war has ended, the country has to face the consequences. Just 30 years after (1990) gaining their own independence under the
