Letter to Balai dasi

Dec. 29, 1967

My Dear Balai dasi,

Please accept my blessings. I thank you very much for your letter of Dec. 26, 1967. In reply I am very happy to hear you are doing so nicely in executing this Krishna Consciousness. Please go on chanting Hare Krishna, and typing, cooking, cleaning or whatever the engagement for Krishna; that way you will always be happy.

To answer you question regarding your names: Balai is the name of Baladev., Krishna's elder brother. His wife is called Balai dasi, or His girlfriend is called Balai dasi. Baladev. is not different from Krishna. He is first expansion from Krishna. All the incarnations and expansions begin from Baladev. Lilasuka is name of Bilvamangal Thakur; this Bilvamangal Thakur was a great devotee of Krishna and he wrote a famous book Krishna Karnamrita, recognized by Lord Chaitanya. Kanchanbala was one of the gopies in the association of Krishna. Indira was also one of the gopies in the association of Krishna. Ekayani was the wife of a great sage who was in the Sattya Yuga when all persons were paramahansas or liberated persons. Ekayani's husband was a liberated person.

Hope you are well.

Your ever well-wisher,
