  • Dear Ms. Cathy Woods, Thanks for your interest. You wanted to know the meaning of the Sanskrit Words used - here it is: In slide 12: Sangha Runam – refers to Social Debt. It is implied that every one must discharge his social debt by being good and contributing positively to the society.
    In Slide 13: Sthitha Prajna – refers to being unaffected by praise and criticism. Implies, being a little detached.
    In Slide 15: Sadgrandha Patanam – refers to reading elevating and inspiring books.
    In Slide 16: Sameeksha – refers to Review; learning lessons; improving is the intended purpose.
    In Slide 17: Sajjana Sangathyam – refers to ensuring the company of positive and good people.
    In Slide 18: Sangeetham – refers to Music – particularly melodious music.
    In Slide 60: Kayakalpa Chikitsha – refers to Ayurvedic treatment, similar to Allopathic treatment, that helps in rebuilding the body, by removing the accumulated toxic and harmful elements. Every language has its own beauty, and helps particularly in touching the heart of the audience. I hope I could clarify. Thanks again. With best wishes, Viswam

  • I can see this as an e-book or something which could be developed into a tablet app. Much of it is common sense but there are some nice surprises in thinking and some original images which mean a lot.
