Redundant,

I saw your comment when you first posted it on here and I remember it being different than it is now, perhaps you edited it. Maybe it changed because it was from several months ago and ...

Hi David,

I am glad you decided to post in Plato forum. Your post was a nice addition to the Vedic concepts. I was waiting for Pete to post some additional comments that he mentioned and awaiting ...

Pete,

Hope all is well with the wife.

Indeed Plato and ancient Indian thought are different paths up the same mountain. The ancient Indian literature is immense, and could be confusing to navig ...
