Shukdev's Letters to his mentor 3
My initial reactions to this adventure are subsided and under some control. My schedule is regular and I have been given and name and the assurance that I would be initiated. So, that stuff is out of the way - but I don't think I could report these incidents in such a way as to be very valuable in a scholastic sense. My reading here and my frame of mind have however opened up a good base with which to work in regard to the presentation of the ideas and relative "paths" of those most enlightened fold of the late 19th and 20th centuries. I'll give it to you in a sketchy outline which I want you to keep and we'll work on it when I get back. It is basically in the form of a large work encompassing many volumes from the ancients to the present and hopefully it will constitute the better part of my year's worth of incomplete credit.
I. The Sages (the most influential, widely published and well-known giants of the late 19th and 20th centuries re: the spirit and paths to truth.
II. The "glue" - Buddha's "eight-fold path" beginning with "the 4 noble truths." This ancient path is still practical and very amenable to a cross-reference of the aforementioned thinkers.
III. biographies of each
IV. the writings from my journal where applicable
V. the yogas and where they fit etc.
