Bhāvanā (Pali;Sanskrit, also bhāvana) literally means "development" or "cultivating" or "producing" in the sense of "calling into existence." It is an important concept in Buddhist praxis (Patipatti). The word bhavana normally appears in conjunction with another word forming a compound phrase such as citta-bhavana (the development or cultivation of the heart/mind) or metta-bhavana (the development/cultivation of lovingkindness). When used on its own bhavana signifies 'spiritual cultivation' generally.
Bhavana derives from the word Bhava meaning becoming or the subjective process of arousing mental states.
To explain the cultural context of the historical Buddha's employment of the term, Glenn Wallis emphasizes bhavana's sense of cultivation. He writes that a farmer performs bhavana when he or she prepares soil and plants a seed. Wallis infers the Buddha's intention with this term by emphasizing the terrain and focus on farming in northern India at the time in the following passage:
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (sometimes informally known as Millionaire) is an international television game show franchise of British origin, created by David Briggs, Mike Whitehill and Steven Knight. In its format, currently owned and licensed by Sony Pictures Television, large cash prizes are offered for correctly answering a series of multiple-choice questions of increasing (or, in some cases, random) difficulty. The maximum cash prize (in the original British version) was one million pounds. Most international versions offer a top prize of one million units of the local currency; the actual value of the prize varies widely, depending on the value of the currency.
The original British version of the show debuted on 4 September 1998, and aired on ITV with Chris Tarrant as its host until 11 February 2014. International variants have aired in around 160 countries worldwide. The show's format is a twist on the game show genre—only one contestant plays at a time (similar to some radio quizzes), and the emphasis is on suspense rather than speed. In most versions there are no time limits to answer the questions, and contestants are given the question before they must decide whether to attempt an answer.
"Man of Misery" was originally used, in demo form, in a promotional video for the Liam Gallagher run clothing line Pretty Green, and was originally credited as a Liam Gallagher solo song. The song was originally available as an iTunes exclusive for those who downloaded the album.
The accompanying promotional music video, directed by Charlie Lightening, was shot while the band were touring in Spain. In it, all four members of the band - plus live bassist, Jeff Wootton - drive through the Spanish countryside and along the coast, before ending up at a pub.
At the begin of 2004 the band started the works for the album Paradisiac, but during the recording session the guitarist Ben Wijers left the band.
In 2005 the band released their second album Paradisiac produced by Josh Homme and finetuned at the studio of fellow Queen of the Stone Age Alain Johannes. Homme has also played guitar with Millionaire for some live performances.
