Richard, just in case Rick closes FFL given recent events, and if you join another group, please let me know about that group. I'd like to join too.
Share - There used to be a group called the Bhagavad Gita Lab - don't know what happened to it. Sometimes I post to a Google Group, which is un-moderated. Recently I joined a Yahoo Group moderated by Paul Mason and I plan to post some more of my Sri Vidya musings that you might be interested in reading. /So much to do - so little time./

According to Professor Flood, there were no "Hindus" in the historical Buddha's time. /"The actual term Hindu first occurs as a Persian geographical term for the people who lived beyond the river Indus."/ The term Hindu then was a geographical term and did not refer to a religion.
