My dear Balavanta,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your report dated Dec. 3, 1976 and have noted the contents.
That the Miami newspapers are appreciating our temple grounds is very good.
Why artificial insemination? We should avoid that. The physiology is, if the semina is more, then comes bull. So, take more land and engage them in agriculture, plowing by the bulls instead of tractor. Bulls can be engaged in plowing and transporting. Nice bullock carts village to village for preaching. Make the farm the center and go ten miles this side, ten miles that side, ten miles this side, etc., with four bullock carts. Sell books and preach and live peacefully on the farm. People used to engage the bull for this purpose. So there was no problem which way to utilize them. First of all this artificial way should be stopped, and the bulls should be engaged in plowing and transporting, and smashing the grains. To avoid machinery, petrol, machine oil, by nature's way.
Your description of the Tennessee farm is very nice.
Hoping this will meet you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
