Dear Karandhar Prabhu,

Please accept my humble obeisances. It is apparent that you are feeling difficulty at not being the BBT Trustee, and I am sorry for this. Let me try to clarify the point. You had resigned, then returned to Prabhupada in Europe dressed in karmi clothes with long hair. Then after being in India as GBC you again resigned by writing a letter saying that you had no faith in Srila Prabhupada. Also when I was in L.A. two months ago the girl Ujjvala met with me that you had promised to marry her and that I should advise her now to meet you in India.

Your behavior has been erratic, and in such a responsible position as BBT Trustee we have to be very careful. For the time being you should manage Spiritual Sky very nicely, and try to repay the loan to the BBT. That will be a very great accomplishment. Side by side you should become a pure Vaisnava, strictly following all the rules and regulations. Prabhupada is stressing this for all the Society leaders. If you are first following all the devotional practices, then you can insure that all the others are also following. Then our Society will advance harmoniously.

When you have repaid the loan to BBT and proven yourself by ideal behavior and character, by the grace of Krsna and the spiritual master, everything will again come to you, your position, your honor, and everything. Prabhupada had implicit faith in you. Now you have to regain it by sincere work. I hope this meets you in good health,

Your servant,

Brahmananda Swami
