Re: Eswar Josyula's comments about the relevance of #32. Numbers have been very significant in the way saints and Acharyas have composed their works. That the Mahabharata war was fought over 18 days and the Geeta has 18 chapters is no coincidence. It may all have something to do with the science of astrology and numerology. Their is even a system of medicine where Devanagiri script letters are used in the healing process of minor ailments. In numerology number 7 & 9 are very significant if they show up in one's quest for the divine and the numbers 4 & 8 are significant when one's quest is in search of the occult. Someone in this group who may be adept in numerology or who knows someone may be able to get the numerlogical significance of number 32. Regarding its significance for Prapatti it becomes Bhagavan's responsibility to make astrology and numerology work favourably for a Prapanna engaged in His service. Jaganath.
