This is one of hundreds of letters Osho wrote to Ma Anandmayee, then known as Madan Kunwar Parakh. It was written in the afternoon of 20th August 1961. The letterhead has a simple "रजनीश" (Rajneesh) in the top left area, in a heavy but florid font, and "115, Napier Town, Jabalpur (M.P.) in the top right, in a lighter but still somewhat florid font.

Osho's salutation in this letter is "पूज्य मां", Pujya Maan, Revered Mother. It has a couple of the hand-written marks that have been observed in other letters: a blue number (16) in a circle in the top right corner and a pale blue mark of uncertain meaning in the bottom right corner, but no red tick mark. The PS is addressed to Sharda.

Osho acknowledges the receipt of 'RAKHI' sent by Sharda and Shushila along with Ma's letter. In PS he writes to Sharda: "received your 'RAKHI', sister. Those two threads do not tie the hand but the body and heart too. And again you are tying the next life also! May God fulfill your desire. Lots of love." Raksha Bandhan (RAKHI) was on 26th August (Saturday) as per 1961 calendar.

११५, नेपियर टाउन
जबलपुर (म. प्र.)

पूज्य मां,
प्रणाम : पद-स्पर्श। कृपा-पत्र मिला है। यह बात आप सोच ही कैसे सकीं है कि मैं शंका कर सकूंगा। वह प्रश्न ही नहीं है। मैं जानता हूँ कि जो कुछ भी आप करेंगी वह ठीक ही होगा। मैं परिपूर्ण आनंद में हूँ। शारदा और शुशीला की राखियां मिली है : बहुत खुशी हुई। उन्हें मेरा स्नेह कहें। चांदा में सबको मेरी याद दिलादें। अमरचन्द चुप क्यों है? उसे पूछें। पारखजी, यशोधराजी और सबको मेरे प्रणम।

२० अगस्त १९६१
रजनीश के प्रणाम

(पुनश्च : -
शारदा को,
बहिन, तुम्हारी राखी मिली है। वे दो धागे हाथ को नहीं, तन-मन को बांध लेते हैं। तुम तो फिर अगले जन्म को भी बांध ले रही हो! ईश्वर करें तुम्हारी आकांक्षा पूरी हो। मेरा बहुत-बहुत स्नेह।

रजनीश के शुभाशीष
