Letter written on 7 Mar 1971 (Kusum)
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 Sannyas Wiki has images of all but one of those published in PKS, plus three unpublished ones, plus one in English published in The Gateless Gate.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 7th March 1971 and was published in Prem Ke Swar (प्रेम के स्वर) as letter #25 and also in Pad Ghunghru Bandh (पद घुंघरू बांध) (letter #142). The letterhead is a typical one from the early days of living in Woodland, his principal home during the Bombay era. It has "acharya rajneesh" in all lower-case letters, his address and phone in all-caps in a different colour, and a two-colour Jeevan Jagriti Kendra logo.

पर आदमी की आंखें हैं बंद।
आकाश-सी स्वतंत्राता है चरों ओर।
पर आदमी है कि स्वनिर्मित कारागृहों में कैद है।
पंख है पास में कि उड़ान भरी जासके तारों तक।
पर अज्ञात में स्वयं को छोड़ने का साहस सुप्त है।
