dear gita group members,

Sri Ramudu has indicated that using a chat group it is possible to do our 
gita class.  Let us try that while we still can use the bridge 
simultaneously.

see details below.  I will post more on how to get to chat room later.


There will be a Telephone gita class on Nov 5th.  the subject will be :

Chapter 12.

Incidentally, ie. first 5 shlokas of 12th chapter are the one of the most 
interesting shlokas with MOST DIVERGENT COMMENTARIES. The term "akshara" 
needs to be understood properly.  Please go through all the shlokas from 
chapters 1 through 12 to find the meaning of term akshara in various 
commentaries. Without proper study it will be very tough to understand why 
Sri Ramanuja explains these verses in that manner.  I would like to remind 
you to study the available commentaries on these verses before the next 
class on

NOV 5th sunday.


duration 4-5:30 PM pacific time   7-8:30 pm eastern std time

If you need the code for the conference call let me know

adiyen krishna
Krishna Kalale


NOTE THE EMAIL BELOW.  I WILL TRY TO WORK WITH MR. RAMUDU TO SEE IF GITA 
LECTURES LIKE THAT ARE POSSIBLE.

thanks.

Dear Krishna Kalale and Bhakta Siromanis,

There is a free voice chat software that we can try the next time there is
Bhagavat Gita Teleconference, in addition to what you are having.
The link for that is
http://www.excite.com/communities/chat/voicechat/rooms
If you page down  it says
"Enter a room name to go to an existing room  to create a temporary room! "
We have created a chat room called "Nivedana" and tested it.
One can create his/her own Chat room. For example you can create chat room
called "BhagavatGeetha" if it is not already taken.  This is a free
service.

We are scheduling an audio conference to thoroughly test this weekend.
The chat room that will be used is "Nivedana" ( without the double quotes )
The conference will be held at 8:30 AM Central Standard Time US
on Saturday December 4th 1999.
The discourse is given by
His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Srimannarayana Ramanuja Jeeyar Swamiji.

We should also try this voice chat next time Krishnaji has a Geetha class
along with the
Teleconference that is going on.

The SDK is available from www.lipstream.com.  Software gurus of bhakti-list
 can incorporate
it into the our homepage and we can have a Virtual Internet Acharya
(eAcharya)
answering the questions of inquisitive minds.  Sounds like fun? No it is
not, this is a true fact.
For more details visit http://www.excite.com/info/excite_voice_chat/

Kind Regards,
Raghu Ramanuja Dasaha
