Swami Desikan

Dear venerable group members:
I was so enlightened by the production of sriman Sudarshan and cannot 
wait to read the entire " steps" of the paramapatha sopanam.
The process to the top of the pinnacle, a straight forward ascent, is 
certainly, even in the present day life, the lone means to attain the 
opulent state of eternal tranquility.
I am sure the psycho therapist Dr.Wayne Dyer has drawn a parellel 
relating to the most modern living in his book "Sky is the limit".
He describes the " state of mind " of a human in a typical sitation.
1. Panic
2. Inertia
3. Striving
4. Coping
5. Mastery
The last step mastery is comparable to the " Vivekam " of Swami Desikan.

Om NaMo Naaraayanaa.
