Letter written on 1 Mar 1961 am
This is one of hundreds of letters Osho wrote to Ma Anandmayee, then known as Madan Kunwar Parakh. Text of main part of the letter was written around midnight on 28th February 1961 and PS's was written 1 March 1961 in the morning, although Osho consciously stated 29 Feb 1961 (this is not leap year, see discussion), on his personal letterhead stationery of the day: The top left corner reads: Rajneesh / Darshan Vibhag (Philosophy Dept) / Mahakoshal Mahavidhalaya (Mahakoshal University). The top right reads: Nivas (Home) / Yogesh Bhavan, Napiertown / Jabalpur (M.P.). Many of his letters on this letterhead have had the number 115 added in by hand before "Yogesh Bhavan" to complete his address, but not this one.
This letter does not have Osho's usual salutation, "प्रिय मां", Priya Maan, Dear Mom, but instead "पूज्य मां", Pujya Maan, Venerable Mother. It lacks most of the marks found on most earlier letters, except that it has a small group of pale blue marks in the top middle part of the letter whose meaning and import is not clear. Layout of second sheet is headed with the word "पुनश्च", punashch, "Postscript", followed by two sections: 1st section of PS is for 'Padam' and 2nd for 'Fadke Guruji'. From what is written to both of them in PS also, it becomes clear that Osho is referring to visit of Ma and Padam at Gadarwara for the wedding (on 18 & 19 Feb) - in continuation with first part of letter.
Sheet with PS has a small group of pale blue, non-circled marks in the top middle part of the letter whose meaning and import is not clear. These marks do not resemble marks found previously, but they are similar to marks on first sheet.
It has been published in Bhavna Ke Bhojpatron Par Osho (भावना के भोजपत्रों पर ओशो), p 82 & 81 (Diamond 2002 edition).
