My Dear Mukunda,
The record which you have sent singing Sri Ram, Jaya Ram, Jaya Jaya Ram, and other Kirtans is really a new turn and we have enjoyed the record so nicely. This Narada Muni song is in your country tune and I think it will attract many more of common man to join the Kirtan so you should practice this standard Kirtan more conveniently so that during your Rathayatra festival you can have this singing with the procession.
Please inform all the devotees, boys and girls, especially Janaki devi, that I am progressing well. As soon as I get a little strength for travelling I shall come to San Francisco. In the meantime I shall be very glad to know what arrangements you are going to do for the Rathayatra festival. Make it a grand procession and unique introduction in the United States.
Please inform Upendra that I have very much appreciated his letter of service attitude. This service attitude is a great asset of revelation in Krishna Consciousness.
P.S. Also inform Jaiananda I have received his letter and the difficulties of life may come as seasonal changes but we should not be disturbed by all those difficulties. Our process is to chant and that process will gradually clear everything in due course. There is nothing to be disrupted--you should go on with your work with enthusiasm and everything will be solved. We are on the sound footing of Krishna Consciousness.
