"Beauty is often worse than wine;
 intoxicating both the holder and the beholder."

 
-- Johann Zimmerman

Daniel Akst in The Wilson Quarterly has the following to report on the research at London's University College on HUMAN BEAUTY which has moved mountains, destroyed empires, created wars and even disturbed the minds of gods and goddesses:

  • Beauty may even be addictive.
     
  • human beauty stimulates a section of the brain called the ventral striaturn, the same region activated in drug and gambling addicts when they're about to indulge their habit.
     
  • Photos of faces rated unattractive had no effect on the volunteers to whom they were shown, but the ventral striaturn did show activity if the picture was of an attractive person, especially one looking straight at the viewer.
     
  • The responses occurred even when the viewer and the subject of the photo were of the same sex.
     
  • Good-looking people just do something to us, whether we like it or not."

As per Dr. Robert Gordon, a psychologist in Allentown, Pa., USA:

  • Physical beauty attracts, but it doesn't keep.
     
  • He instructs his clients to "go to the mall and look at how many gorgeous people are walking around, holding hands." Most are downright average-looking and yet they have found a mate.
     
  • Getting past exteriors, is one reason Dr. Gordon is a big fan of Internet chat rooms.

BEAUTY IS A WEAPON OF
 maayaa-shk`ti
out of which everything is created

In the study of vED one would find beauty of living beings described as a powerful force which affects all living beings and especially living beings who have the human form of mortal humans or DEvtaao. DEvtaao could be DEvo (gods) and DEviio (goddesses) who generally live by the rules and regulations of DHARm and asuraao who do not follow DHARm.....In creation reality asuraao are the elder brother of DEvo......Here are some of the anecdotes from the study of puraaANo and also itiHaas such as raamaayAN and mHaaBHaart:

  • viSH`ANu-DEv took the form of moHinii who was a the most beautiful young woman in creation. moHinii with the promise of enjoyment of her beauty seduced and duped asuraao to give up amRUt (nectar which gives immense strength that was obtained from KSHir-saagr-mthn (churning of the ocean of milk which is one of the seven oceans in the pRUth`vi-lok) they stole during the 2nd avtaar of viSH`ANu-DEv called kuARm avtaar. (s`kND puraaAN)
     
  • bRHmaa-DEv took the form of moHinii who was the most a beautiful young woman in creation to seduce a king who had a law in his kingdom that all its citizens must do a fast on agiyaars (11th) day every month. By doing this agiyaars fast all the citizens in this kingdom were absolved from all their paap (sins) and thus nobody was going to nrk (hell). As nobody was going to nrk, ym-raajaa who presides over nrk and its working was out of his job and complained to bRHmaa-Dev saying if he just sits in his job without doing anything then he would get paap (sin). So to remove this difficulty of ym-raajaa bRHmaa-DEv took the form of moHinii and seduced and duped this king into getting rid of his law of all his citizens must do agiyaars fast. And with that ym-raajaa was back in business in nrk. (s`kND puraaAN)
