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.
