Letters March 7
Rayarama My dear Rayarama, Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter of the 3rd instant and noted the contents carefully.

I am just trying to wipe out this Mayavada philosophy and you may not therefore order for any more copy of...
Buffalo My dear Rupanuga, Please accept my blessings.

New York My dear Bali-mardana Maharaja: Please accept my blessings and I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter, with newspaper clipping, dated nil.

Bhaja Hari My dear Bhaja Hari, Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your encouraging report and I thank you very much for it.

Muralidhara Dear Muralidhara, Please accept my blessings. I have received your letter sent to Mayapur with a list of questions regarding your painting pictures for my books. The answers are as follows. 1. Kardama Muni should look something like you have pictured Vyasadeva, with beard and top know of hair, not as you have pictured him in your drawing. Generally munis have beards.
Frankfurt My dear Harikesa Maharaja, Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated March 1, 1976 and I have noted the contents with care. I have marked how they are attracted to our kirtana and prasadam there in Hungary. If they consider our philosophy too revolutionary, there is no necessity to print books immediately.
