Regarding dhyana- Advice for a 'novice'- Part 1by Sri Sadagopan Swami
Date: Wed Sep 02 1998 - 08:42:30 PDT

Dear Bhagavatas,

With a masterly storke of his pen portait, Sriman Sadagopan has sublimated an
otherwise commonplace experience of 'peeping through' the screen / keyhole
etc. when the Lord is having a private rest ! 

He has literally taken us by our collars making us share his experiences in
Guruvayoor, Tirupati, Tiru Allik Keni and Srirangam.

Though everyone of us would have had such experiences as narrated by him at
some point of time or other, how many of us could capture the flash of
Bhagavan's Ekanta Divya Mangala Vigraham as if through a Video Camera and
project it on our mental screen so vividly?

When seen through the lense of Sri Sadagopan's word picture, the Lord seems to
beam his beatitude with such telling effect,  which would otherwise have
fallen flat on us.

Thank you, Sri Sadagopan.
