Osho wrote many letters in Hindi to Ma Kusum Bharti and her husband Kapil, then of Ludhiana. Most were addressed to Kusum, but always mentioning Kapil too. 27 were published in Prem Ke Swar (प्रेम के स्वर). Sannyas Wiki has images of all but one of those published in PKS, plus three unpublished ones, plus one in English published in The Gateless Gate.

This letter is dated 2nd December 1969 and was published in Prem Ke Swar (प्रेम के स्वर) as letter #12. The letterhead is a typical one of those days, showing a simple all-lower-case "acharya rajneesh" at "kamala nehru nagar" in "jabalapur (m. p.)", with his 4-digit phone number and a two-colour Jeevan Jagriti Kendra logo.

acharya rajneesh

kamala nehru nagar : jabalpur (m.p.). phone : 2957

प्यारी कुसुम,
प्रेम। मैं तो बम्बई तेरी प्रतीक्षा ही करता रहा।

लगता है इस बार सोनू जित गया ?

कपिल पहुँच गये होंगे और मेरा प्रेम भी तुझतक पहुंचा दिया होगा।

अब तो लगता है कि तू जनवरी में भावनगर ही मिल सकेगी।

कपिल से भावनगर आने की बात हुई है।

भाव नगर में १६,१७,१८,१९ जनवरी सत्संग है।

शेष शुभ।

तेरे पत्र को आये बहुत देर होगई है।

जल्दी लिख।

सोनू अब कैसा है ?

कपिल को प्रेम। सोनू को आशीष।

रजनीश के प्रणाम
