Letter to Bhakta Ralph

Camp: Nellore, South India

My dear Bhakta Ralph [handwritten]

Please accept my blessings. I beg to thank you letter, undated.

There is no reason why you cannot associate with any of my disciples, providing that they adhere to our principles. As long as Siddha Swarup Maharaj and Tusta Krishna Maharaj act as sannyasis, ie. dress in dhoti, keep shave headed with sika, follow strictly the rules and regulations and preach from my books, I have no objection. Sometimes there will be a little misunderstanding between Godbrothers, that is even going on amongst liberated souls. What is important is that everyone must engage in Krishna's service under the direction of the spiritual master.

I hope this meets you well.

Your ever well wisher,

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
