This picture shows a Shaolin monk.

The robe hangs on the right shoulder,

and runs down to his left hip.

The robe covers up the right arm and the right side of the chest,

while leaving the left arm and chest exposed.

A previous post discussed the Toga, an example of which is shown in this picture.

A Toga runs from under the right side of the arm,

up and over to the left side of the body,

where it hangs on the left shoulder.

A Toga leaves the covers the left chest and left arm,

while leaving the right arm exposed.

A different previous post focused on the robes of a Buddhist Monk.

The Buddhist robes, like the Toga, run from under the right arm,

up and over to the left side of the body,

where it hangs on the left shoulder.

Also like the Toga, the Buddhist robes cover the left chest, 

while leaving the right chest and arm exposed.

Both of those previous posts claimed both the Toga and the Buddhist Robes were designed the way they were to mimic sensations that could be felt within human bodies that have been changed in a particular way.

That is also the reason why the Shaolin Monk Robes were designed the way they were. To mimic sensations the Shaolin Monks felt within the body as the result of training in Shaolin Kung Fu.

It seems reasonable to describe Shaolin Monks as aggressive because of their practice of Kung Fu, which is the Chinese name for hand to hand combat.

Buddhist Monks could be described as passive because Buddhism is associated with peacefulness. A Toga, while harder to pin down what it represents, could be associated with peaceful intellectual pursuits.

It is therefore intriguing to wonder if the reason the Toga and the Buddhist Robe leave the right shoulder exposed,

is because the bodily sensations the Toga and the Buddhist Robe are meant to mimic are the result of a peaceful mental attitude, and the reason Shaolin Monk Robes leave the left shoulder exposed,

is because the bodily sensations the Shaolin Monk Robe is meant to mimic are the result of a more aggressive, hand to hand combat oriented mental attitude.

A previous post discussed the Roman Toga.

The Toga is wrapped from under the right arm,

up and over to the left side of the body,

where it hangs on the left shoulder.

The Toga does not cover the right arm or right shoulder.

This picture shows a Buddhist Monk wearing a robe.

 The Buddhist robes and the Toga are similar.

The Buddhist Robe is also wrapped from under the right arm,

over and up to the left side of the body,

where it hangs on the left shoulder.

The Buddhist Robe also leaves the right arm and shoulder exposed.

The previous post discussing the Toga claimed the design of the Toga was based on sensations produced by a human body that had been changed in a particular way. That post claimed the Toga looks the way it does because it visually mimics what those invisible sensations inside of the body feel like.

Buddhism is associated with Asian countries, which are 1000’s of miles away from the country of Greece. The fact that human beings in a country 1000’s of miles away from where the Toga was invented,

created a type of clothing that looks almost exactly like the Toga,

is corroboration for the claim the Toga is based on sensations from within the human body.

The fact that Asian people are geographically located 1000’s of miles away from Greece does not change the fact that Asian people have the exact same human body that Greek people do.

Their Asian human bodies could of course change in the exact same ways that Greek human bodies would. And since the Buddhist Robe and the Greek Toga look almost exactly alike, it seems reasonable to believe the same sequence of events leading to the creation of the Greek Toga, also led to the creation of the Buddhist Robe.

Some ancient Asian person felt sensations within their body as if something was wrapping from the right side of their body over to the left side of their body, but not wrapping around the right arm and shoulder.

That person then created the Buddhist Robes to mimic those sensations.

The toga is an article of clothing that hangs on the body like a robe. The difference between a robe and a toga is a toga is wrapped around the body in a distinctive way as shown in this picture.

A toga is wrapped from under the right arm,

up and over to the left side of the body,

where it hangs on the left shoulder.

The right shoulder and arm and not covered by the toga.

The Toga was not part of some fashion trend created by clothing designers. The design of the Toga is based on the human body.

The human body produces different sensations depending on how it is developed. The ancient Greek people had bodies that were developed in such a way that they felt like a Toga looks.

Their bodies felt like something inside of it was wrapping from under the right arm over to the left side of the body. Their right shoulders felt as if they were isolated and not covered by whatever it was that felt like it was wrapping from the right side of their body over to the left side of their body.

 The way in which the bodies of the ancient Greeks were changed was not something that was unique to ancient Greek culture. A basic human body from ancient times is the same basic human body available in modern times. A modern human body can also change so that it produces the same sensations the ancient Greeks experienced.

There are a variety of activities that can cause a human body to produce the sensations that led to the creation of the Toga. Masturbation, Excessive Sexual Activity, Homosexuality, and Excessive Exercise are all associated with the type of body change that Toga is meant to mimic.

It does not seem like it can be a coincidence that homosexuality is associated with the body changes a Toga is meant to mimic, and ancient Greek culture is historically infamous for homosexuality.

This picture shows a real human being wearing a simple toga.

This toga is not wrapped around the body like the toga in the drawing.

The real man’s toga is tied at the left shoulder,

and hangs down to the right side of the body.

The real toga picture is interesting in light of the previously listed activities that cause the bodily sensations that the Toga is meant to mimic.

The man is holding his right hand,

as if he was holding his penis to perform masturbation,

and masturbation is one of the activities that can cause the sensations the design of the Toga is meant to mimic.

The picture below shows a statue of the Indian God known as “Kali”.

The statue of Kali shows a human being with two pairs of arms.

The inspiration for those two pairs of arms is the fact the human body can feel as if it has multiple pairs of arms.

According to Yin Yang Theory, everything in the universe can be divided into Yin and Yang. That would include the human body since a human body is an object in the universe.

The human body itself can be described in terms of Yin and Yang in a number of ways. One way is to describe the human body as consisting of two halves, one of which is Yin and one of which is Yang.

 There is a particular pattern to where the Yin parts of the body are and where the Yang parts of the body are. Pointing those areas out can best be accomplished using a picture of a human body on it’s hands and knees as if it were an animal on all fours. 

The “down on all fours” posture makes it easier to point out the Yin and Yang areas of the body because “Yin” is associated with what is called “the internal part of the body”, while Yang is associated with what is called “the external part of the body”, and the “down on all fours” pose of a human body makes the internal and external areas of the body obvious.

The external area of a human body down on all fours would be the outside of the legs,

and the back,

because they the external parts of the closed shape formed by a human body on all fours.

The internal part of the body is the inside of the arms and legs,

and the chest an stomach,

because they are on the inside of the closed shape created by a human body on all fours.

The god Kali has four arms is because two of the arms represent the Yin part of the normal arms,

while the other two arms represent the Yin part of the normal arms.
