Letter written to Ma Yoga Vivek on 10th November 1971. The letterhead has "Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh" in a large lower-case "faux-Devanagari" font; the rest, in small ALL-CAPS, reads "A-1 Woodland Peddar Road Bombay 26 phone 382164". The logo is a stylized, squared Om (ॐ).

Beloved VIVEK,
Love. I know how you will be feeling THERE.
Because, now you are an outsider there and for that matter, everywhere.
And this is how it should be.
It shows that meditation has gone deep.
And you are not the same.
Meditation makes you a stranger in your own home.
And ultimately homeless everywhere.
SANNYAS MEANS NOTHING BUT ABSOLUTE HOMELESSNESS.
I have sent you there PARTICULARLY for this experience.
And when you are back to me you will have come enriched.
I am happy – very very happy that now ROBERT is there with you.
Because you will feel a part of me in HIM.
Sometimes gaze in his eyes and then suddenly remember ME.
And I will be there.
He can become a window and a passage.
· · ·
But NOW COME BACK SOON.
SOONER THE BETTER.
Here am I waiting and waiting and waiting for my VIVEK.
Rajneesh ke pranam
