Hari Om!

Email is highly impersonal. So, I thought I would introduce myself 
before beginning posting to the list.

I am 31 years old, and I am employed as a Chief Sub Editor in The 
Hindu Business Line, the financial and business daily of The Hindu 
group. My studies were partially in Srirangam and Mumbai. I have 
also studied a schooI run by the Ramakrishna Tapovanam. I was 
earlier with The Indian Express, Ahmedabad. 

My knowledge of Hinduism, leave alone Vishishtadvaita, is negligible, 
but I am deeply interested in learning now what I haven't in all 
these years. I was a member of the Chinmaya Mission long back and 
whatever little I know about Hinduism is because of Swami 
Chinmayananda and Swami Vivekananda. 

I have a personal homepage where I have provided links to sites 
related to Hinduism, including Aandavan Ashramam.

I request the members to help me my suggesting books or other sources 
where I will be able to learn more about Vishishtadvaita. It will be 
better if the sources are in a language in which guys like me can 

My father subscribes to Sri Ranganatha Paduka, but the articles in it 
go right over my head.

Of course, I depend a lot on this mailing list, too.

Hari Om.
