[Letter to Maharaja of Khetri]




 




MATH, BELUR,




HOWRAH DIST.,




BENGAL,




 




26th October, 1898.




 




YOUR HIGHNESS,




 




     I am very very anxious about your health.  I had a great desire to look in on my way down, but my health failed completely, and I had to run down in all haste.  There is some disturbance with my heart, I am afraid.




 




     However I am very anxious to know about your health.  If you like I will come over to Khetri to see you.  I am praying day and night for your welfare. Do not lose heart if anything befalls, the "Mother" is your protection.  Write me all about yourself. ...How is the Kumar Saheb?




 




     With all love and everlasting blessings,




 




Ever yours in the Lord,




 




VIVEKANANDA.

[Letter to Maharaja of Khetri]




 




THE MATH, BELUR,




HOWRAH DIST.,




 




November(?), 1898.




 




YOUR HIGHNESS,




 




     Very glad to learn that you and the Kumar are enjoying good health.  As for me, my heart has become very weak.  Change, I do not think, will do me any good, as for the last 14 years I do not remember to have stopped at one place for 3 months at a stretch.  On the other hand if by some chance I can live for months in one Place, I hope it will do me good.  I do not mind this.  




 




However, I feel that my work in this life is done.  Through good and evil, pain and pleasure, my life-boat has been dragged on.  The one great lesson I was taught is that life is misery, nothing but misery.  Mother knows what is best.  




 




Each one of us is in the hands of Karma; it works itself out—and no 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.
