Subject: My name in your mailing list for advaita digest

Dear Sri Ravishankar,

**  Thank you for your mail.

**  The main reason for my joining the advaita-list is to keep
my mind engaged in reading "matters spiritual" when it hankers
for intellectual entertainment. There was a time when I used
to read books on vedanta, mainly in English. For the last few
years, since 1994, I have been spending my spare time mainly
reading and rereading the words of Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharshi
both in Tamil and samskrit. It appears to me now that "Bhakti"
is an essential ingredient for the spiritual evolution of the
mind, along with Vichara.

**  I feel that the ground rules you have indicated for the
discussion  group is fair.

**  I am not currently very much inclined to be involved in
extensive analyses or debates. However, I may at times be
able to share some brief thoughts or perceptions mainly as
understood from the words of Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharshi.

**  I teach and do research in aerospace engineering for
a living.

This introduction, I hope would be adequate to meet your

Yours sincerely,

s. suryanarayan
