> Namaskaram. Please bear with me for asking a dumb question as I am a novice. I saw your posting of Nirvanashtakam on your website. There are only six slokas. What happened to the other two?
As this is a point I have often noted and corrected in the past, I will respond although the question is addressed to Sri Sastri.
There are no other two verses. The Slokas are called nirvANashaTkam - a collection of six verses. I have seen two wrong terms used by
different people, who assume there should be either eight or hundred verses - nirvANAshTakam (eight) or nirvANaSatakam (hundred).
i.e. the correct term is nirvANa + shaTkam, not nirvANa + ashTakam nor nirvANa + Satakam.
