Pranam! I did contact Professors Hardmann, Zydenboss etc. there, but their research orientation focuses mainly on Kingship, Tibetian Buddhim etc. differing from my area of research Advaita Vedanta etc. (I've submitted my PhD dissertation on Madhusudana Sarasvati's Gitagudharthadipika at SOAS, Univ. of London, and await examiners' reports shortly).
