Dear Sri Mani Varadarajan :

No, the CD ROM section on Bahgavadh Gita 
does not refer directly to Prapatthi as distinct 
from Bhakthi Yoga.

This is a age old controversy (i-e)
whether AchArya RaamAnujA did refer to 
Prapatthi anywhere in his direct works as
opposed to Bhakthi Yogam . 

I will address the subject ot the best of my
ability and request others to join in .
