Dear Mr. Joshi,
I have been instructed by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to reply your letter dated September 16, 1977.
I am sorry to inform you that His Divine Grace is very ill at present. While in London he underwent a minor surgical operation and afterwards he returned to India. His return to India was to see the opening of the Bombay Temple, but it was also determined by his failing health. Now he is completely bedridden and cannot even turn in his bed without the help of an assistant. His condition is most precarious. Under the circumstances, and immediately after the opening of the temple he wishes to return to Vrndavana. His Divine Grace has stated that if he is able to survive this very trying disease, then after Vrndavana he will return to America. In the event that he returns to American more than likely he will only stay at one or two temples for long periods of time. On the West Coast he will probably stay at Los Angeles. He is no longer able to do any extensive touring.
