    Hello everyone,

    I have been thinking about whether or not the fine folks here would be interested in having a little study group to discuss (in a constructive way) whatever we have been learning from our scriptures and acharyas. Perhaps we could take up certain topics or verses from an agreed upon text and talk about the import of whatever is being taught. We have a whole range of views in the DIR so I think it would be interesting to see all the different ways we understand what we study, including where we agree, disagree, and agree to disagree. Far from being an opportunity to debate, it would instead be a way of broadening our mental horizons and discovering all the rich nuances and shades of our traditions. It would also help us to remember what we have learned from our own studies.

    I am checking how much interest there would be in such a venture.

    What do you all think?

    I will not join the group unless there is an invitation. :) People are uncomfortable with my posts (and I don't blame them, my posts are such). But I wish you the best ('Tejasvi nāvadhitamastu' - may 'your' deliberations be brilliant). Regards.
