Dear Dr. Gayatriji,

Please I would like your opinion about which sloka is better in relation to speech, 15, 16, 17 if I need to make workshop about yoga in connection with motivation for people to achieve peace of mind and to give knowledge about the difference of the effects about being connected with an identification with body and mind and using the force to obtain results or being connected with the Higher Self and learn to listen and surrender. For some time I did sloka 15 and I noticed some poetry coming suddenly to my answers! which difference are more specific of 16 and 17? which one will work better for people to connect with the information given? Please can you also suggest any other sloka to have more social connections as I spend lot of time studying and preparing this work I also get some low interaction with friends and family even if I feel I am connected to everyone I would like to be more involved in the social life and find a right partner to walk the path with together...I have been working on sloka 51 but my problem is that due to the time I spend alone I find lot of time to wonder and I sometimes want to change every time of sloka and can not maintain the same one...I will appreciate any suggestions from you, any advice, any words that you kindly could give me to feel more connected. Thank you so much for your blog and God Bless You!

When this says erudition, can this mean things like scientific knowledge? Also, it says "different languages". One can actually know languages from different countries with the grace of Devi?
