This is one of hundreds of letters Osho wrote to Ma Anandmayee, then known as Madan Kunwar Parakh. It was written on 16th December 1963 in the morning. The letterhead has "Acharya Rajneesh" in a large, messy font to the left of and oriented 90º to the rest, which reads:

115, Napier Town
Jabalpur (M.P.)

Osho's salutation in this letter is "प्रिय मां", Priya Maan, Dear Mom. There are none of the hand-written marks seen in other letters, no ticks, no numbers. The whole letter is in black, though the PS is written by Kranti - Osho's younger sister - with a different pen and, headed with the same "प्रिय मां" too. The main body of the letter has info about upcoming dates in December.

The letter has been published, in Bhavna Ke Bhojpatron Par Osho (भावना के भोजपत्रों पर ओशो) on p 248.

आचार्य रजनीश

११५, नेपियर टाउन,
जबलपुर (म. प्र:)

प्रिय मां,

मैं बाहर था। गुना और रायपुर होकर कल ही लौटा हूँ। इस बीच पत्र लिखना चाहा लेकिन समय नहीं पासका। २३ दिसम्बर अरविंद का आदर्श विवाह होरहा है। श्री मस्ते जी रूढ़ि-परंपरा मुक्त विवाह के लिए कठिनाई से अभी अभी राजी हुए हैं इसलिए उस संबंध में भी आपको जल्दी नहीं लिखा जासका। आप तो आ ही रही हैं : श्री पारख जी, शारदा और यशोदा बाई को भी लेआवें तो कृपा हो। मैं उसके बाद ही २५ दि. की संध्या बम्बई जारहा हूँ। वहां २६ - २७ - २८ ध्यान का वर्ग आयोजित किया है।

शेष मिलने पर। मैं आशा करता हूँ कि सब लोग आरहे हैं। कब आप यहां पहुँचेंगी सो शीघ्र सूचित करदें। विवाह २३ की संध्या जयंती समारोह के बाद ही आयोजित किया है।

प्रभात. १६-१२–‘६३

रजनीश के प्रणाम


प्रिय मां,
अरविंद की शादी में आप सबको लेकर अवश्य आने का कष्ट करेंगी मुझे पूरी आशा है कि आप हम लोगों को निराश न करेंगी। मेरी तरफ से आप पारख जी, बहिन शारदा व यशोदा बाई से भी आने की प्रार्थना करेंगी सबको साथ लेकर आयें हम सब लोग आप सबके आने की राह देख रहे हैं।

श्री अप्पलवार जी से भी कहे की वो भी इस अवसर पर अवश्य पधारें। शेष शुभ।

सब को आने की राह में
==============
क्रांति के प्रणाम

Letters to Anandmayee 913.jpg

The letter reads: "Ma, I was away - have returned only yesterday after visiting Guna and Raipur. In between wanted to write a letter but couldn't find time. Arvind's 'adarsh vivah'* is organized on 23 rd December. Shree Maste Ji has agreed for the non-traditional marriage, just recently with difficulty; that's why it couldn't be informed to you in this regard earlier. You are surely coming - come along with Shree Parakh Ji, Sharda and Yashoda Bai also; and oblige. I will be going to Bombay only after that on 25 Dec evening. Meditation classes are organized there on 26-27-28. Rest when we meet. I am hoping that all are coming. Inform soon, about when you are reaching here. The marriage is organized in the evening of 23rd after the Jayanti Samaroh**. Rajneesh Ke Pranam. Morning : 16-12-63"

* 'adarsh vivah' means a simple ideal marriage without being extravagant - prevailing even now in Indian society traditionally from earlier days.
** Jayanti Samaroh = Sant Taaran Taran Birth Anniversary celebration.

The following part written on the same page in short by Kranti - Osho's younger sister. It reads: "Dear Ma, You will take trouble to come indeed, along with all in Arvind's wedding. I have full hope that you won't disappoint us all. On my behalf, you will request Parakh Ji, sister Sharda and also to Yashoda Bai to join. Do come with all together. We all are waiting for you all to come. Tell Shree Appalwar Ji also that he must come for this occasion. Rest OK. Awaiting for all Kranti Ke Pranam."
