Extract from the letter written by Shree Maharaj to Shri Sharad Govind Kokje , Ratnagiri ., published in Third edition of ‘Tuchi Baap Dhani’
C hi. Sharad esqr. Best of the blessings of Shree Swami Krupa,
Received your letter dated 18/12/1972 (and) noted contents. Happy to read that your wife’s and son’s health is now alright. It is good that their disease is under control. That you are leading satisfied life and are in a better position in Society now is due to your legacy and god’s grace. It’s good that you had been to Sawarde for darshan. Shree Sant Seetarambuwa’s death anniversary will be celebrated on 4/2/1973, Sunday, Magh Shuddha pratipada Shaka 1894. Please attend if you get time. I am there at that time. Whatever reading of Gurucharitra and Japa you are presently doing is enough. Only increase Japa whenever you get time. Mind will be under control if you do Japa in meditation by sitting on aasana with eyes closed, regularly for sometime. After some days (your) mind will be peaceful and concentrated. With good intention and devotion offer your services to God then he will definitely take care of you. God is not elsewhere or far but he is in your heart always. And he is in the heart of everybody, everywhere amongst all movables and immovables.
It’s good that you have frankly written the letter. Write whenever you feel like. I will reply to it whenever I get time. Shree Sadguru Baba’s Blessings are with you and all your family members. Don’t have any doubt about that.
I will come to Dervan on 8/1/1973 and shall stay there for 15/20 days. I am thinking of coming to Ratnagiri also for 2/4 days during that period if possible. Blessings to your son and wife.
