new member introduction

My koti namaskarams to all the Bhagavathas on the list,
I am Sadagopan, a 77 year old man merely aspiring Moksham (sounds 
hypocritical at times) given the karmic difficulties one continually faces 
in life. I live in a small island near Barbados.
I looked up the archives to see a some discussions on "SAdhyOpAya". I must 
admit despite all my efforts to follow what is in the texts, I have not been 
able to get any closer to feeling I am approaching "Brahman".
Years have rolled by, and I have tried living the past 5 years in the 
Bhakthi Margam.
I only hope to be able to ask people around me to chant/play the 
Vishnusahasranamam and Chant "Om Namo Narayanaya" while I start losing my 
senility. But that might turn out to be a "Wolf, Wolf" story.
--I find it very disturbing to read some juvenile articles "condeming" 
certain lines of some book.
--I also find it very disturbing to read some real "Bhagavathas" being  a 
part of this helpless disorganized society trying to give up important 
"kainkaryams". All it calls for is some clean up and following of some 
protocols.

I may not be getting close to "Brahman" but I take the liberty of dropping 
in a few words because of my age.
Waiting for the day!
Om Namo Narayanaya.
