Dear Sri Sarmaji
I am a recent member on advaita-L but for some reason my messages are not
being delivered to the list. I have written a message on this topic and if
you like this, please feel free to post it on the list.
Not being a traditional follower of advaita, I wanted to remain silent on
the list. However I cannot remain silent when I hear such ludicrous claims
that quantum mechanics and modern physics are already present in the Vedas.
I would like to give a friendly advice that people who make such claims are
not only far removed from reality, but also run the risk of being subjected
to severe ridicule.
