DEar sri M.S Hari,

thanks  for the correction regarding SaTakopa - term.  I think my
pronunciation also is influenced by english language.  Particularly when Dr.
Sadagopan - uses g instead of k in his name, and when people chant tanians
of our acharyas, they pronounce 'g' instead of k, slowly over ages, it has
affected my view on it.  I checked the sanskrit books. the tanians clearly
include k - ie. satakopa. It makes sense since gopa - means protector and
kopa means "anger" - against the sata - vayu or in other words -" one that
spurns this normal mode of mortal bondage".

adiyen Krishna Kalale
