      Dear Lena, thank you for your most inspiring posting!

      Your simplicity is a great achievement! In simplicity is tremendous
      power. The utmost simplicity and directness of your gratitude and
      devotion has inspired me today. May I be like you in that!

      I am reminded of a poem by Sri Chinmoy:

      The Real Reality

      The real reality
      Is a simple simplicity,
      And not a complexity.
      Complexity has never been related to reality.

      -Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, Part 4, #329

      Your brother, Kamalakanta
