Letter to Jayatirtha -- Vrindaban 14 March, 1974:

Please accept my blessings. I have received two letters recently from Gandharva das Adhikari of the Los Angeles Temple. He is feeling some inconvenience, as he states it, due to the younger devotees not showing proper respect to him as he is their elder, old enough to be their father. So they should show the proper respect, as is befitting a Vaisnava, who offers respects to one and all.

Your ever well-wisher,
