My Dear Krsnakatha Das,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated September 30th, 1974 and have noted the contents. So far I know the paintings are coming out nicely from the press so if you like you can remain with your wife in Montreal. You can also paint like Deva-huti does by the instructions of the press managers.
There is no hindrance of your being a householder so far as distributing books are concerned. Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu had many householder disciples who would preach Krishna Consciousness. I understand recently in Toronto the entire temple distributed many "Isopanisads" and other books. So you can engage your self in spare times [handwritten] in this book distribution without any hindrance. Side by side you can also paint pictures for Krishna. In this way fully engage yourself in Krishna's service. That is what I want. Nothing else.
I hope this meets you in good health.
