760520 - Letter to Abhirama written from Honolulu
51 Coelho Way, Honolulu, Hawaii,
May 20, 1976
His Grace Abhirama das Adhikari,
3 Albert Road,
My dear Abhirama das,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated May 9, 1976, and I have noted the contents with care.
You can continue to work at trying to get the park for constructing our temple there as previously planned. Keep me informed as to the progress.
So far the land in Jagannatha Puri is concerned, we can have a nice temple on 21 acres of land.* You can negotiate the rental fees and inform me accordingly before proceeding further with this project.
I hope that this meets you in good health.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
* Whether in the land there is vegetation? If it is only sandy then it is not good.
Secretary's note: Prabhupad explained that it should not be a "desert." There should br some trees growing there & possibility of more vegetation. P.K.S.
