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 Sannyas Wiki has images of all but one of those published in PKS, plus three unpublished ones, plus one in English published in The Gateless Gate.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 8th March 1971 and was published in Prem Ke Swar (प्रेम के स्वर) as letter #26. Also published in Ghoonghat Ke Pat Khol (घूंघट के पट खोल), letter #40. 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.

प्यारी कुसुम,
प्रेम। यात्रा है अनंत।

माना।

पर एक एक बूंद से सागर भर जाता है।

यात्रा है कठिन।

माना।

पर मनुष्य के छोटे-से ह्रदय में उठे संकल्प से हिमालय भी तो झुक जाता है।

रजनीश के प्रणाम

८/३/१९७१


पुनश्चः
कपिल को प्रेम।
असंग को आशीष।
