I have previously received 2 to 3 letters from you. However, due to the lack of devotees being available to write the letters physically, and being occupied myself with different services, it was not possible to reply timely.
‘Sri Krishna Chaitanya Sahasranama’ was not sent earlier, so I am sending it now. The 5th edition of Sri Sajjana Toshani has not been published yet.
I have heard that *** has arrived in Kolkata. Soon enough, *** will return to his residence. The miserable condition of *** is the consequence of his past sinful activities. We are sorry about that. “Sva-karma-phala-bhuk puman” (everyone is subjected to enjoy or suffer the fruits of his own activities), so in his future births, he will be benefitted.
Please refrain from bad association within your mind and chant Harinama without offense. Please regularly study the scripture ‘Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita.’
Everything is fine here. It has been settled that, soon, deity worship will be started in Vrajapattan (Mayapur).
Your ever well-wisher,
Sri Siddhanta Saraswati.
