To Govinda Sahay





MOUNT ABU,


1891.


DEAR GOVINDA SAHAY,


You must go on with your Japa whatever direction the mind takes. Tell Harbux that he is to begin with the Prânâyâma in the following way.


Try hard with your Sanskrit studies.





Yours with love,





V.

To Haridas Viharidas Desai





BARODA,


26th April,1892.


DEAR DIWANJI SAHEB;





Very happy to receive your kind letter even here. I had not the least difficulty in reaching your house from the station of Nadiad. And your brothers, they are what they should be, your brothers. May the Lord shower his choicest blessings on your family. I have never found such a glorious one in all my travels. Your friend Mr. Manibhai has provided every comfort for me; but, as to his company, I have only seen him twice; once for a minute, the other for ten minutes at the most when he talked about the system of education here. Of course, I have seen the Library and the pictures of Ravi Varma, and that is about all worth seeing here. So I am going off this evening to Bombay. My thanks to the Diwanji here (or to you) for his kind behaviour. More from Bombay.


Yours in affection,


VIVEKANANDA.


PS. At Nadiad I met Mr. Manilal Nabhubhai. He is a very learned and pious gentleman, and I enjoyed his company much.

To Haridas Viharidas Desai





ELLAPA BALARAM'S HOUSE,


C/O. THAKORE OF LIMDI,


NEUTRAL LINE, POONA,


15th June, 1892.


DEAR DIWANJI SAHEB;





It is a long time since I heard from you. I hope I have not offended you anyway. I came down with the Thakore Saheb of Mahabaleshwar, and I am living here with him. I would remain here a week or more and then proceed to Rameshwaram via Hyderabad.


Perhaps by this time every hitch has been removed from your way in Junagad; at least I hope so. I am very anxious to learn about your health, especially that sprain, you know.


I saw your friend the Surti tutor to the Prince of Bhavnagar. He is a perfect gentleman. It was quite a privilege to make his acquaintance; he is so good and noble-natured a man.


My sincerest greetings to your noble-minded brothers and to our friends there. Kindly send to Mr. Nabhubhai my earnest good wishes in your letter home. I hope you would gratify me by a speedy reply.


With my sincerest respects and gratitude and prayers for you and yours, I remain,





Yours faithfully,





VIVEKANANDA.
