In "Autobiography of a Yogi" there is a translation of a postcard to Yogananda dated 11th August 1926.

Child of my heart, O Yogananda!

Seeing the photos of your school and students, what joy comes in my life I cannot express in words. I am melting in joy to see your yoga students of different cities. Beholding your methods in chant affirmations, healing vibrations, and divine healing prayers, I cannot refrain from thanking you from my heart. Seeing the gate, the winding hilly way upward, and the beautiful scenery spread out beneath the Mount Washington Estates, I yearn to behold it all with my own eyes.

Everything here is going on well. Through the grace of God, may you ever be in bliss.


In the book "Treasures Against Time" by Brenda Lewis Rosser there is a letter written to Dr M. W. Lewis dated 21st June 1922.

My Dear Doctor,

Yours of the 9th May is to hand. I heartily congratulate that you have advanced so much in spiritual consciousness and appreciated the real truth of the religion. Innumerable thanks to our Almighty Father through whose blessings my disciple Swami Yogananda has become a help to you. If our Sadu Sabha gets a Home for Satsanga at your place, I shall be extremely glad to be with you there, and enjoy a pleasant trip with your company round the world. With my whole heart's love.

I remain,
Very Sincerely Yours,
