Dear Shri Swami Chinmayanandaji,
“Om Namo Narayanaya”
I am in due receipt of all your letters and booklets. Glad to know from the report of the Editor that you are successfully conducting this gyana yagna. To a modern mind success means a big attendance of hearers. But that is not a real success. Success of such Upanishad discourses depends upon the number of aspirants who are prepared to follow and practice gyana yoga. This is a kind of Sravana which is now being conducted there. Sravana leads an aspirant to Self- Realization. If it does not lead so, then it cannot be called as a success.
Lectures are all good and clear and highly useful to a beginner of gyana yoga. Philosophically also there is no any contradiction with the great and a……….. principles of “ Adwaitha Thought”.
Here we are all doing well. Now cold is not severe: it is decreasing. I am not going down this year to Rishikesh.
With love and best wishes
