    Sri Mani : any comments ?


As long we keep being dominated by the sense of ownership and the
anger that results due to this sense, we cannot progress spiritually. 
Recognizing that this is a problem is the first step.  Being  vigilant, i.e.,
preventing it whenever possible, is progress.  This is certainly possible
in this medium of communication, since there is a lag between stimulus
and response.  Hence, this is a good field to learn to control the
Ahamkaram.  Note I am not preaching, this is something I am trying to
practice myself, as it is a major problem for me as well.
