What Does Oriental Mean

What is this thing called “culture”? I’m not very happy with the word. Does it mean you’d like to do something because you were conditioned to do it? That you’d like to feel something because you were conditioned to feel it? Isn’t that being mechanical? --Anthony de Mello #conditioning #washingthebrain #awareness

Two boys in Oriental Dress. What does this mean?

A 1947 portrait of Lajos Kozma. “Hungarian tradition does not mean doing what our predecessors have already done,” he wrote in 1926. “What it means is doing what our predecessors did: standing on the bridge between East and West, welding our oriental flavour, provincial freshness, pride of peasants and flare for decoration with the refined erudition of the west…. New can only be created along the boundaries of the spirit of the times.”
