Letters to Anandmayee 794.jpg

This is one of hundreds of letters Osho wrote to Ma Anandmayee, then known as Madan Kunwar Parekh. It was written on 27th December 1960 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; this is not one of them.

As with a number of letters of this vintage, there is a blue number (5) in a circle in the top right corner, but it is crossed out. A further oddity when compared with others of this era is that a red tick mark which appears on some of the others does so here as well, but in a different place, on the right side rather than on the left above Osho's salutation -- "प्रिय मां", Priya Maan, Dear Mom.

This letter has been published, in Bhavna Ke Bhojpatron Par Osho (भावना के भोजपत्रों पर ओशो) on p 70 (2002 Diamond edition).

We are awaiting a transcription and translation.
