-- A man's hesitations are the surest (reverse) signs of his total interest.

-- The parallel is Ramapuram's lack of response to borewell. It was not so much lack of interest as lack of faith in its possibilities.

-- Refusal of one who already possesses money or is capable of earning it can be genuine. Prior to such possession or refusal, in the absence of such capacity, it is a toothless tiger taking to vegetarianism.

-- Monetary goal is like an academic degree for one in pursuit of knowledge. Pursuit of knowledge outside the academic channel is no real pursuit will become evident if you consider it outside of school.

-- The age-old frown of religion on money is ever-present as a popular sentiment without any reality to it in rationality or in life.

-- Surrender of ego is for those who have one. A good portion of the population has not yet developed ego to shed it. Pior to the formation of individual ego, man is a social being, meaning the individual centre is unformed.

-- 'Ashram is created for another purpose' said HE. I can give my interpretation of it. No one has the call of God to take to this yoga. Humanity is subconsious for this yoga. Only a subconscious reception was possible when HE and She were there. Subconscious reception was possible by being together. HE did not want to found one, SHE did. HE never refused HER.  It was an experiment in the plane of human subconscious. Men are as far removed from the ideal of not seeking money as the sadhaks were removed from the conscious pursuit of yoga. In between lies the layers of spiritual, mental, and vital. God is there in the Supramental, man is in the body (subconscious.) At each level of the intervening layers there is a divide of conscious and unconscious. It makes for 6 intervening layers. Man in the 7th layer cannot meaningfully speak of language of the first layer. His doing 'yoga' or not doing yoga are phrases that cannot be related to yoga. So, is the phrase 'monetary goal or its refusal'. To be able to create a scale with appropriate index will make a man know his position in that scale. Such a scale will be somewhat like the following:


1) Spiritual

                + conscious                           -- Undisturbed calm, equality and patience

                - unconscious                       -- Their external forms appropriate to worship


2) Mental

                +                                              -- interest in original ideals, rational

                -                                               -- interest in facts and reading to gather facts.

3) Vital

                +                                              -- Successful career for his social position

                -                                               -- Successful employee under such a man.


4) Physical

                +                                              -- Secure physical survival.

                -                                               -- insecure in spite of survival.


The four levels can be subdivided into 40 or 100 with precise definitions understandable by readers and fixed by the defining indices. Index can be further extended to the subtle plane which can fix a person by rasi (Tamil word).

   The real complication arises when you know that all these four levels have an infinite capacity to intermix. That is not for now. It can be understood after effectively using the above primary programme. We have all the theory to describe say about 100 or 200 types in the intermixture. All that we need is to collect the field examples to corroborate. Once it is constructed, it is invincible. Man will know for himself where he really is whether he owns it or not. Anyone can give the prescription once the right diagnosis is there. That programme will be a great one.

   Money is a precise scale the like of which does not exist. Suppose the nations of the world are what they are today and money does not exist, how can you grade them? In a class where thee is no exam, no grades, we can imagine what the last boy will claim.

   Man is estimated by his achievement and money ensures it.

   Money gives a security such as the mother's lap for the child. Even at 30 the mother's lap gives comfort.

5-Prior to such possession or refusal, in the absence of such capacity, it is a toothless tiger taking to vegetarianism


35-thee is no exam-there is no exam

36-ca imagine -can imagine

38-Even at 30 the mother's lap -Even at 30 ,the mother's lap

-Prior to such possession or in the absence of money earning capacity,such refusal is synchronous to a toothless tiger taking to vegetarianism.
