Dear Advaita Friends of Charlottesville, It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of the founder of Advaita Friends of Charlottesville, Dr.

For these seminars, I wrote concise but complete notes which I handed out to my students, and which summarized the salient points in order to make as clear as possible the scientific basis for the seminar.
