Hari: Om! Salutations!
I am extremely glad to receive your letter of the 24th April only just now. I have been enquiring at various places of the welfare of "Hanuman" Sri Eknath Ranade. It is at Ujjain that the Secretary, Vishwa Hindu Parishad gave me a clear picture of him as to how he is faring. At Ernakulam when I heard the news, nobody knew any details about it. We cannot afford to allow Ranade to go away so quickly and so easily. We will protest to the Lord! I am sure. He will listen.
In this new life we will have to make Kanyakumari as his Headquarters and send his workers all over. He had already built up the ground in almost all the States of India. Let our workers go and work there.
With Prem and Om,
Thy Own Self,
-- With regards and prayers Yours sincerely, (D. Bhanudas) General Secretary 09443150490 Vivekananda Kendra, Kanyakumari http://www.vivekanandakendra.org The more we withdraw ourselves from the sense-world, the stronger grows our power to know and to do, to endure and to enjoy. : Bhagini Nivedita
