Dear Sri Mohan TL

Subject : Re Anubhawam and Pandithyam

I fully agree with your views on this.
I was looking for these two important words
that is Anubhawam can I call it Experience,
and Pandithyam can I call it Gnana.
I agree with you that Experience is more
important than Gnana . Is int Bhakthi
a form of Experience. That is why I regard
Bhakthi more important than Gnana.
Whether Bhakthi comes from Gnana or
Gnana comes from Bhakthi, I am not very
sure of this. For the sake of argument
let me say Bhakthi and Gnana are complimentary.
But Experience I feel is very important.
You take for example the great saint
Tulasidas, I donot know whether he
followed Dwaitha, Adwaitha or Vishista adwaitha.
There is no mention of any of these in his works.
Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.
But his works are based purly on his
Anubhawam and Bhakthi to Lord Sri Ram.
I find from my experience
reciting the Hanuman Chalisa composed
by Sri Tulasidas gives me a lot of mental peace
and lot of Bhakthi is filled in it. It is a great
master piece by Tulasidas. In fact I have
read Ramacharitamanas  composed by
Tulasidas and I find it also great, filled with
Lot of devotion to Lord Sri Rama.
I am tempted to recite the first Para of
Hanuman Chalisa---
Jaya Hanumana Gnana Guna Sagara
Jai Kapisha Tihu Loka Ujagara
Rama Doota Atulita Baladhama
Anjani Putra Pavanasutanama
Mahavira Vikrama Bajarangi
Kumati Nivara Sumati ke Sangi……..

With regards
Jai Siya Ram
