Namaste and pranaam,
This is Manish Wadhwa, doing my Ph.D in electrical engg. from old
dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia, USA.
My country of residence is India.
Regarding my interests in Advaita Vedanta, then for me it is about BEING, not
about just taking interest or getting intellectually involved. I wanted to
joing this conversation as I felt like. Advaita Vedanta is the last link in the
chain of human evolution and spirituality, and I feel there it propounds the
highest philosophy that man can ever reach. If man has to reach the highest
truth then he will have to cross this chasm and advaita vedanta shows some
light in darkness.
Thanks a lot,
