    I just finished reading " In light of India" by Octavio Paz. ( See review by Udhaya in Sep 98.)
    Very few books have influenced or fine-tuned my perspectives as this one. Million thanks to Udhaya.( Udhaya: Did you get my personal email?)

    I wish Paz was alive to write a sequel reflecting on what is happening in India now.( bombs, loss of secularism etc)

    Agree with vj. This thread badly needs to be revived. I have just started reading Nietsche's "Beyond Good and Evil ". I had been wanting to read this for a long time and finally was triggered by refernce to Nietsche being influenced by Vedic philosophy in Octavio Paz's "In light of India". Will get back later with my reactions on Nietsche.

    Progress(?) on Nietzsche's "Beyond Good and Evil". In the last five days I have hardly crossed ten pages. It is tough. Anyone to share this experience?

    Hello all,

    Has anyone read "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahamsa Yogananda? A real treat to the heart and soul!
    Any comments, reviews ?

    Anu

    anu, i have read "the....yogi".... somehow i am just unmoved by yogis recounting their lives,

    i cant understand why they would write a book ... seems to be cross with the kind of things they talk about... ..but one thing i learnt from that book is that he is "endowed" with "somthing"

    and Ramji, talking about Nietzche ( a struggle to get across the spelling..) i "tried" Thus Spake Zarathusthra which makes me believe what one professor of philosophy wrote about many of the european (especially german) philosophers thriving on a platform of obscurity

    vj again
