Extract from the letter written by Shree Maharaj to Shri Hari Narayan Tambe ., published in Third edition of ‘Tuchi Baap Dhani’
Chi. Haribhau, Best of the blessings of Shree Swami Krupa- Received your letter dated 5/2 and noted the contents.
Make (necessary) efforts for the land, it’s your duty. Go in for appeal. Keep status-quo about sister’s marriage for this year. Until sister’s marriage is done and your Training is completed you should not marry. Maintain good character. Keep up efforts for (your) brother’s employment. He will get the job. Or else, you may call him back (and) get him a job as a school teacher like you. Let him not remain idle. In the present circumstances do upasana as much as possible, mentally. (If one) realizes self mistakes then it’s an indication that one has become thoughtful. As far as possible it’s best to be judicious, have simple living and high thinking as much as possible within your limits.
Keep reading whatever is necessary for your occupation, religious books and biographies of saints. It is utmost necessary to keep good health. Delightful eternal god lives in the heart of everyone, to perceive him should be the aim of (every) human being. One should not get involved or have lust while in Karmayoga. In short, one should do his best to find out who is he and realize (the eternal God). Never avoid duty. Be truthful and loyal to one’s aim (while in life).
