From Epistles – First Series of Volume 5 of The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda
(Translated from Bengali)
Gopal Lal Villa,
Benares (Varanasi) Cantonment,
12th February 1902.
My Dear Rakhal,
Don’t ask my opinion on any other matter either. That makes me lose my temper. Just do that work for me — that is all. Send money, for at present only a few rupees are left.
Kanai (Nirbhayananda) lives on Mâdhukari, does his Japa at the bathing ghat, and comes and sleeps here at night; Nyedâ does a poor man’s work and comes and sleeps here at night. “Uncle” and Niranjan have gone to Agra. I may get their letter today.
Continue doing your work as the Lord guides. Why bother about the opinion of this man and that? My love to all.
