Out of Africa
I received this reply from Srila Sridhar Maharaj after I wrote to say that I had left South Africa and was now living at the temple in San Jose, California, helping Sripad Bhakti Sudhir Goswami Maharaj to publish the Golden Volcano of Divine Love and other books by His Divine Grace on the Guardian of Devotion Press:

Lalita Charan Prabhu,
62 South 13th Street,
San Jose, 95112,
My Dear Lalita Charan Prabhu,
Please accept my humble respects. All glories to your holy connection with His Divine Grace Srila Sridhar-dev Goswami Maharaj. Your letter dated July 18th to Srila Sridhar Maharaj was duly received and the contents noted. I am to reply on his behalf.
Srila Guru Maharaj said: "We are pleased to hear that you are staying in San Jose at present. Wherever you will find that your devotional practices are blossoming, then there you will stay. Anyhow, continue under the direction of Goswami Maharaj and keep us informed of your progress. My best wishes upon you."
Srila Guru Maharaj became a bit ill after the [Janmastami] festival from continuously speaking. Now he is slowly improving. Hope to hear from you soon.
(Signed) The Secretary,
Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Nabadwip.
