My dear Jadurani dasi,

Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your undated letter, and I have examined the contents.

You mention that in the picture where Lord Caitanya is discussing with the Kazi about cow killing, Lord Nityananda is there with a drum. No, there is no mention of Him being with a mrdanga. He should not have a shaved head as a brahmacari but in the same feature as we always see the two, Gour Nitai. Nityananda was brahmachary and became grhastha but you should always paint them in the Gour Nitai style and feature you are already accustomed to doing.

Do not feel frustrated about the slowness in producing paintings. Simply paint as many as possible.

Your ever well-wisher,


A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
