The Master personally attends to the work of correspondence both foreign and local, in spite of heavy demands on His time, and has to sit till late hours in the night. Satisfactory arrangements are made to safeguard against any loss of correspondence received in the Ashram. At times He goes out of the station in answer to pressing calls from different places; then too letters are issued on His personal instance in each case and the replies are delayed on account of absence on tour. To save heavy postage on account of the abnormal receipt of letters – over one thousand from India and abroad monthly – it has been started as trial measure to send off replies in closed covers weekly or so – except in urgent cases – to a central station where they could be sent by post, duly stamped, to different stations in foreign countries.
