Letter to Rupanuga

April 27th 1970

My Dear Rupanuga,

Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 22nd April, 1970, along with enclosure of one check for $200, and thank you very much for this.

The moving Sankirtan Party was programmed long, long ago, even when I was in India. When there was talk about preaching amongst our God-brothers, I used to say to my God-brothers that when I would begin preaching I shall take two trucks, one for Sankirtan Party and one for carrying requisites, and I would go from village to village throughout the whole world preaching Lord Chaitanya's message. So the time has come as per my dream, by the grace of Krsna you are carrying on this program. Please therefore organize this moving Sankirtan Party as you are already doing from one school or college to another. If we can rightly impress the Krsna Consciousness idea in some intelligent student's heart, it will be of great service. Perhaps sometime after, I will request you and Kirtanananda to go to India and execute this program in the student community there.

I am negotiating with a gentleman in India to get the management of a very old Radha Krsna Temple, and if this negotiation is successful, we will organize a very nice preaching center in the center of India. From this part, any side extreme boundary is not more than 1000 miles. I think that will be a very nice preaching center. So try to recruit more members for our Society because we have to open many centers, and from each center we shall organize this moving Sankirtan Party. That will be nice program for executing the will of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

I am very glad to learn that you are visiting the near about centers—keep them alive by such visits.

Hope this will meet you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,

[unsigned]
