      Dear Adrija
      I am happy that you have the holy company of Revered Palani Maharaj at Ulsoor Math. Here in this country he is well known by his monastic name Swami Brahmarupanandaji. I hope you are aware that he was born South African. A very amiable sadhu, loved by every one!
      May the blessings of Master be with you!
      Swami Vimokshananda
