I thought this was a really useful clarification
of the word "consciousness". Thanks for posting it.

Let me pass on this message that I received from a friend of mine about
the USA Today Poll to select the PERSON of the CENTURY. USA Today is
conducting this survey and has selected persons from all countries. The
person of the century will be decided by the worldwide poll. The only
person on their list from India is "Mohandas Gandhi". Fortunately, the
right person from India is on the list. Also, at present Gandhi is first
in the list.  I request those of you who are interested to participate
in the survey and cast your vote in favor of Mahatma Gandhi.

If you want to participate, go to the web site at:


Remember, that the Time Poll receives world wide attention, so this
is something worth taking out a few minutes for.

Note: In that list Gandhiji is the only Advaitan that I can identify!
