Tributes to Sreeman S.N. Chari.--------------------------------------------------
Just came to know that Pujya S.N. Sastriji has passed away. I first met him in Advaitin list and I paid visit to him few years ago since he lived in Chennai. He was in a way my mentor always making suggestions to my writings in Advaita and where my interpretation differs from the traditional approach. He was in a way guiding principle. Just 10 days ago he sent me a file translating part of Pancapaadika saying that he is unable to complete it. I will miss guidance. Sastri is well known as he translated Shree Narayaneeyam and was published by Chinmaya Mission. Here is small write up on him published in advaitin list.
