Now I understand the meaning of [what I’d heard about Swami Kriyananda]. Direct contact with Swami has opened my heart as his books have opened my mind. He is a Being who I feel very, very close to my soul and who makes it tremble as when a young boy I would fall in love… I would like to see him again even just from afar because for my love it is enough just knowing that he exists. Thank you for the immense gift that you have given me. Forgive my simple words, but my intellect has gone to pieces…
