Dear friends, The text from Sri Vijayaraghavan's speech is a measure of his vidhwath and humility. Well-researched, precise and clear. At some point close to the end he says: The expressions "I want to be" and "I want to have" agree with the subject 'ahamkara' and have no place in the language of sharanagati.... This reminds me of Sri Sathya Saai's very famous quip: PEACE is all you will have if you remove ego and desire by removing "I" and "WANT" from "I WANT PEACE". How succinct! Dilipan.
