Dear List members,
I have put two new papers as follows on our web site : ddit.ernet.in
They are available via anonymous FTP under the directory
The papers and files are :
etasha_300.ps.gz Etasha's Prattle (aitashapralapa.h) this is one
of the so called Khila sukta in RigVeda, which may be
of interest to some members of this List. The sukta
vividly describes the experience of a meditator. Some
of the utterances match with what Shri Ramana Maharshi
prahlika_300.ps.gz so called Pravahlika sukta, which describes the activity
of mind, jeeva or Durga (as the female aspect of the Ultimate
Reality). The word used for these is kumari (not kumarii).
These sukta very clearly show that meditation practice preceeded RigVeda and was
matured by the time RigVeda was composed.
These suktas has interpretation in terms of Advaita also, of course.
I hope some of you may find these useful.
