    Hello ,
    I was quite interested to go and see that link on “Untouchable”, thanks a great deal for the work.
    I availed myself of the article to quote part of it here:

    Long time has slipped into past… does Gita still entice you? I read your post of 2006 November and found your spirits tuned in towards its teachings. My Master, Ach. Agyaatdarshan has started a series of talks on teachings of Gita here on wordpress itself.. you may like to discover..

    take care..
