Dear ones across the net,
	I was reading Jnaneshwari, book on Bhagavad Gita by Saint
	Jnanadev. In one of its sections appears the following
	statement,
          "Let there be placed on the feet of the worthy preceptor,
	   fully bloomed lotus having eight petals constituted of the
	   eight righteous feelings, laden with fragrance in the form 
	   of righteous joy."

	What are these eight righteous feelings the Author is referring
	to? May I request an explanation from my fellow netizens.
regards
swathy prabhu
