Dear Mr David,

You have sent me a long message On Tirukkanda Panchangam. As I was going thro' that, the electric current got off and somehow the message also got lost, in spite of the battery operation.I am willing to be of any help to you. Could you have the message repeated to me? Sorry for giving you this additional labor.

Yours fraternally,

Dr N C Ramanujachary (id: srivirinchi@rediff.com; ensiar@yahoo.com

Mr David Reigle,

I have read most of the articles found on the web about the Stanzas of Dzyan and the proposed educational approach to the esoteric literature, with fascination. You scholarship is impeccable. Finally, someone has tackled some of the major issues hanging out for a hundred years or so. Thank You sir.
