Letter to Atreya Rsi

Tridandi Goswami


CAMP: Los Angeles ISKCON

September 13, 1972

My dear Atreya Rsi,

Please accept my blessings. I have received your letter dated September 5, 1972, duly delivered to me by hand of Shyamasundar, and I have noted the contents carefully. Regarding your questions, Seva Puja* means only for daily worship of deities. The building fund will construct, the book fund will maintain, and this fund is for daily expenditure of Seva Puja or worship of the deities only. So far your administrative duties as secretary of Mayapur-Vrndavana Trust Fund are concerned, that will be informed by you. For the time being, rents should be collected by Karandhar and sent to India. How it will be done I shall think over and let you know. As for the responsibility for proper spending, the man in charge or the president will be responsible in Mayapur and Vrndavana.

Regarding my personal servant, I have taken one boy, Sruta Kirti, as my personal servant and Nanda Kumar has remained in New Vrndavana with Kirtanananda Maharaj.

Now we have got a very big task before us to purchase the skyscraper building on 40th Street. So I am entrusting that you and Bali Mardan and the other big leaders there in New York will be able to do it. Cooperate amongst yourselves and try to raise the funds very scrupulously and if you remain serious and sincere in your efforts to get this wonderful building for Krsna, He will give you all help and guidance how to do it, without any doubt.

Hoping this meets you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,


A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami

The Secretary may secure food grains and powder milk from U.S.A Government for distribution to the poor people in India for expanding Seva-Puja department in the matter of "Prasad" distribution.[handwritten]
