Brahmananda My dear Brahmananda, Please accept my blessings. Your nice letter of 8/18 in hand; your nice philosophy that Krishna takes and Krishna gives, is very nice. This means Krishna is not impersonal. He is the Supreme Person and fully reciprocates. The impersonalist cannot reciprocate.

Himavati Hamburg My dear Himavati, Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated 26th August, 1971 and have noted the contents. Please don’t be worried at all.

New York My dear Satsvarupa, Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 24th August, 1971 and have noted the contents. So far your travelling throughout the south, particularly Atlanta center, I have no objection. Just so long there is someone competent to look after Boston temple.
