761029 - Letter to Pusta Krsna written from Vrndavana
:Krishna Balarama Mandir
My dear Pusta Krsna,
Please accept my blessings. I am in receipt of your letter dated 10/10/76.
I know that you are intelligent and can act very nicely to help spread Krsna consciousness. If you feel Maya attracting, then live an honest life as a householder and contribute to our movement. As a family man you can join Svarup Damodar to help with the Bhaktivedanta Institute. Caitanya Mahaprabhu says it doesn't matter whether one is a sannyasi, grhastha, brahmana, or sudra. You have intelligence. Study more and more. If you think that you should be married, then do that and assist Bhaktivedanta Institute by giving service. My request is, don't become an ordinary foolish man. Keep Krsna consciousness in any condition of life. That is success.
Hoping this will meet you in good health.
