My Dear Toshan,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated January 25th. and have noted the contents carefully. Your dedication to Srimati Tulasi-devi is very laudable and I am sure that if you consult with Karandhar das he will give you all assistance to help make your dream come true. But carving tulasi beads should not be your sole occupation. You should also go out for street sankirtan and distribute my literature for the cripple minded masses, and whatever spare time you have you can carve some Tulasi beads for me to sanctify. But whatever you do should be done with wholehearted enthusiasm and strict adherence to the principles of chanting 16 rounds, rising for Mongul Arotik, following the four basic principles, always remaining clean etc. You may consult with Karandhar das and request him to approve your second initiation. I hope this meets you in good health.
