My dear Bhagavathaas,

In a message dated 98-08-04 17:29:06 EDT, Sri Anbil Ramaswamy writes:

<< After this, we may perhaps have a similar discussion on the various 
 Kalyana Gunas of the Lord. I have heard in Kalakshepams that the 
 Nityasuris in Srivaikuntam spend their time (Kalakshepam) in discussing 
 the Gunanubhavam of the Lord. >>

With the Grace of Narayana, may I say that this is indeed the most important
and necessary thing to do. The culmination of all efforts leads to this only -
talking about, listening to in rapture and experiencing the gunas of the Lord.
"Man manaa bhava" says the Lord in the Gita. What easier way is there for this
than that offered by the gunas of the Lord? The gunas of the Lord take us to
Him without fail. This, as you know, was the basis of Narada's teaching to
Vyasa and resulted in the gift of Bhaagavatham to us.

If it is not too late to include this in the upcoming December conference at
Dallas, perhaps this can be included in later seminars as a standard feature.
