DakiniDakini are questing and testing agents. There are instances where a dakini has come to test an aspirant's control over his or her sexual desires, but the dakini should not themselves be construed as beings of passion and sexuality.  In the Tibetan language the Sanskrit term dakini means "she who traverses the sky” or “she who moves in space”; this is sometimes rendered poetically as "sky dancer" or "sky walker". Iconographically, their bodies are depicted curved in sinuous dance poses. They dance as they are active manifestations of energy or shakti. It should be noted that while dakinis are often depicted as beautiful and naked, they are not viewed primarily as sexual symbols but as symbols of the naked or natural mind or rigpa stripped of all obscuration and defilements. And the movements of their dance signify the movements and thoughts or the quanta of consciousness in the mindstream and the dharmakaya as the wellspring of the spontaneously emerging Buddha-mind, or rigpa.

Déjà vuThe term "déjà vu" (French for "already seen", also called paramnesia) describes the experience of feeling that one has witnessed or experienced a new situation previously. The experience of déjà vu is usually accompanied by a compelling sense of familiarity, and also a sense of "eeriness", "strangeness", or "weirdness". The "previous" experience is most frequently attributed to a dream, although in some cases there is a firm sense that the experience "genuinely happened" in the past. Déjà vu has been described as "Remembering the future."
Derek and the DominosA blues-rock supergroup formed in the spring of 1970 by guitarist and singer Eric Clapton with Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle and Jim Gordon, who had all played with him in Delaney & Bonnie & Friends. The band would release only one studio album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs which featured "a guitar tour de force sparked by the contributions of guest artist Duane Allman", from the Allman Brothers Band. The album would go on to receive critical acclaim but initially falter in sales and in FM radio airplay. Although released in 1970 it wasn't until March 1972 that the album's single "Layla", (a tale of unrequited love inspired by Clapton's relationship with his friend George Harrison's wife, Pattie Boyd Harrison) would make the top ten in both the United States and the United Kingdom. The album, which has received praise from both critics and fans alike, is often considered to be the defining achievement of Clapton's career.

DharmakayaThe Dharmakaya (lit. Truth Body or Reality Body) is a central concept in Buddhism was first expounded in the  Lotus Sutra, composed in the first century BCE. It constitutes the unmanifested aspect of a Buddha out of which Buddhas and indeed all phenomena arise and to which they return after their dissolution. Buddhas are manifestations of the Dharmakaya called Nirmanakayas. Unlike ordinary unenlightened persons, Buddhas (and arhats) do not die (though their physical bodies undergo the cessation of biological functions and subsequent disintegration). In the Lotus Sutra, Buddha explains that he has always and will always exist to lead beings to their salvation. The Dharmakaya can be considered the highest or truest reality in the universe.

Draft CardsConscription is a general term for involuntary labor demanded by some established authority, but it is most often used in the specific sense of government policies that require citizens (often just males) to serve in their armed forces. It is known by various names — for example, the most recent conscription program in the United States was known colloquially as "the draft".   Cold War conscription became a casualty of the Vietnam War.  The draft enabled Lyndon B. Johnson to build up U.S. forces in Vietnam between 1964 and 1968 from 23,000 military advisors to 543,000 troops.  In 1964-66, annual draft calls soared from 100,000 to 400,000.  Although draftees were a small minority (16%) in the US armed forces, they comprised the bulk of infantry riflemen in Vietnam (88% in 1969).  They accounted for more than half the army's battle deaths.  because student and other deferments, the draft and the casualties fell disproportionately upon working-class youths, black and white.

DylanBob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman, May 24, 1941 in Duluth, MN) is an American singer-songwriter, author, musician, and poet who has been a major figure in popular music for five decades. Much of Dylan's most notable work dates from the 1960s, when he became an informal documentarian and reluctant figurehead of American unrest. Some of his songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems of the anti-war and civil rights movements. His most recent studio album, Modern Times, released on August 29, 2006, entered the US album charts at #1, making him, at age 65, the oldest living person to top those charts.
