730427 - Letter to Bapi written from Los Angeles
April 27, 1973
My Dear Bapi:
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated April 21, 1973 and am glad to learn that you have immigration visa for U.S.A. valid until August 9, 1973. Your former letters I did not receive most probably because they have been missing me because of my extensive travelling. I have come from India to U.S.A. recently on April 1.
You can purchase immediately one membership ticket for ISKCON. It costs only Rs. 1111/-, and on this ticket you can stay in any temple for as many days as you like. So you can secure a membership ticket from our membership office at the following address: ISKCON, 66 Babar Road, Bengali Market, New Delhi.
When you come to New York, I shall advise the Temple Commander to receive you. As you have been granted visa, you can secure a job. I think you can get it easily because you are qualified. I shall advise my disciples to help you, but this will have to be arranged when you come here.
I am sorry to learn that your father cannot see at night. When our time is up, we have to push on even in broken condition of life.
At present I am in Los Angeles and most probably will be here during the month of August.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Your ever well wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
