    Hare Krishna,
    I also heard from other Vaishnava sampradayas that when accidentally touch someone with our feet, we disrespect that person, as well as Lord Hari (Paramatma) who resides within every person. So by touching the person with our hand we are also respecting or making amends with the Lord present in that person. Isn’t that true?
