I agree with Dr.Agarwal that this topic is
beyond the scope of Bhakthi list .I wish to 
point out for the students of comparitive 
religion that another major religion
of the world has been left out by Sri Jayasimman,
which is  "the progenitor" of Christianity and
Islam . That is Judaism . For those , who are
interested to follow up on this topic , the Doctoral
desertation at Harvard Universit yof of Barabra A.Holdrege 
would be the reference .That thesis in an expanded form got 
published recently (1996) under the Title of "Veda and 
Torah " by the State Univeristy of New York press .
