From Epistles – Third Series of Volume 7 of The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda (Translated from Bengali)


15th March, 1890.

DEAR ATUL BABU (Atul Chandra Ghosh.),
I am extremely sorry to hear that you are passing through mental afflictions. Please do only what is agreeable to you.

— “While there is birth there is death, and again entering the mother’s womb. This is the manifest evil of transmigration. How, O man, dost thou want satisfaction in such a world!”

Yours affectionately,

PS. I am leaving this place tomorrow. Let me see which way destiny leads!
