no debate  or question is futile in it's own place,but there is a place for
a student of 1st standard asking:'what is 2+2'? is ok,but a student of a
higher standard asking the same question will get nothing but ridicule!!!
also,it would be the height of immaturity to unnnecessarily criticize
sw.vivekananda who has done more concrete things for our ancient philosophy
and religion than anyone present on this list,and definitely he does not

secondly would it be a good idea to have discussion/satsang on the gita
with lord sankara's comm.,starting from the begining.?as known to all it is
quite dificult to grasp lord sankara's comm. and i am sure many members
will benefit greatly by mutual sharing of ideas.if all the members are
agreed then we can begin
in one or two days-alloting ,say,2-3 days for discussion on one shloka,what

bhava shankara deshikame sharaNam
