Daily Reading





 To the Maharaja of Khetri





15th December, 1898.





YOUR HIGHNESS,





Your very kind letter received with the order of 500 on Mr. Dulichand. I am a little better now. Don't know whether this improvement will continue or not.





Are you to be in Calcutta this winter, as I hear? Many Rajas are coming to pay their respects to the new Viceroy. The Maharaja of Sikar is here, I learn from the papers already.





Ever praying for you and yours,





Yours in the Lord,





VIVEKANANDA





nay. There is only one element in life which is worth having at any cost, and it is love. Love immense and infinite, broad as the sky and deep as the ocean — this is the one great gain in life. Blessed is he who gets it.





Ever yours in the Lord,





VIVEKANANDA

DEAR

Yours etc.,

To Mrs. Ole Bull





Baidyanath, Deoghar,





29th Dec., 1898.





My Dear Dhira Mata,





You know already my inability to accompany you. I cannot gather strength enough to accompany you. The cold in the lungs continues, and that is just what makes me unfit for travel. On the whole I hope to improve here.





I find my cousin has been all these years cultivating her mind with a will, and she knows all that the Bengali literature can give her, and that is a good deal, especially of metaphysics. She has already learnt to sing her name in English and the Roman alphabet.





It is now real brain work to teach her, and therefore I have desisted. I am trying simply to idle away my time and force myself to take rest.Ere this I had only love for you, but recent development proves that you are appointed by the Mother to watch over my life; hence, faith has been added to love! As regards me and my work, I hold henceforth that you are inspired, and I will gladly shake off all responsibilities from my shoulder and abide by what the Mother ordains through you.Hoping soon to join you in Europe or America, I remain,





Ever your loving son,





VIVEKANANDA.
