Apparently there are plenty of people out there, and I'd like to publicly
thank those who sent replies.
Just for the record, it appears the Jnaneshwari version and the Swami
Chinmayananda ones are the most popular. Personally, I would definitely
prefer using the Chinmayananda version simply because I have been involved
with the Chinmaya Mission program (i.e., Balavihar) for pretty much my
entire existance. My parents have a copy at home (i.e., not here), but I'm
at college (i.e., here), and so I sought out copies at the university
library (i.e., Northwestern U). The Chinmayananda copy was not available.
However, I will probably get the Jnaneswari version sometime soon, if the
copy I have checked out for now (Swami Nikhilananda, of the Ramakrishna
Vivekananda Center) is unsatisfactory.
Thanx all for your help!
