751222 - Letter to Hrdayananda written from Bombay
December 22, 1975
Sao Paulo, Brazil
My Dear Hrdayananda Maharaja,
Please accept my blessings. Thank you for your letter dated November 29th 1975. The poem is very nice, however one should not think himself a devotee, poem 3. should read
"Your servant's calling so sadly,"
"Your servant's falling so badly,"
"A servant's trapped in the city."
one cannot call himself a devotee, but servant he can call himself always.*
Your bus program sounds nice, it is approved my me.
I hope this letter meets you well.
Your ever well wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
