I wouldn't go near anything to do with Sanskrit and the University of 
Oxford with a ten-foot pole as they are seriously in bed with ISKCON,
an organisation of which I was a member 36 years ago until my family had 
the strength to hire deprogrammers from the USA to
rescue me: I will NOT do business with either a cult or an organisation 
which in any way helps that cult achieve its ends.

Indeed.

I've never heard of a "get rich slow program", although it does sound 
charming, even if, at 56, slow may mean
that I hit my richest point about 3 years after my funeral.
