There was no need of interpretations and why you have interpreted the picture as one has to be naked before the Lord to become perfect? We have no interp…

My dear Rayarama,

Please accept my blessings. Sometimes ago you proposed that you would remain with me constantly and help me in editing my books specially Srimad-Bhagavatam. But now the situation is different. You are busy in some other way. This has given me much pain. However, if you still desire to remain with me and help me in editing my books, it will be a great pleasure for me, and if you so decide, you can go with me to London also.
