This is an excerpt from the introductory message that
was sent to you when you joined the list:

--<begin excerpt>

Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can get a
list  of the  available archive  files  by sending  an "INDEX  ADVAITA-L"
command  to LISTSERV at LISTSERV.TAMU.EDU.  You can  then order  these files
with  a "GET  ADVAITA-L LOGxxxx"  command, or  using LISTSERV's  database
search facilities. Send  an "INFO DATABASE" command  for more information
on the latter.

This  list is  available  in digest  form.  If you  wish  to receive  the
digested  version of  the postings,  just  issue a  SET ADVAITA-L  DIGEST

More  information on  LISTSERV  commands  can be  found  in the  LISTSERV
reference  card, which  you can  retrieve  by sending  an "INFO  REFCARD"

Also you can look at the archives through the www:

Also, for those interested in original samskrit
