Context and background

Mr. Jinarajadasa provided this foreword to the letter:

S. Ramaswamier wrote to his Master as follows: Sashtanga Namaskar at the thrice holy feet of my Father. Will it be for my good, and will it assist me in the development in me of my clairvoyant and clairaudient powers, if I every morning between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. keep a pin of iron before me and try to move it by my will power? Vijnapanam ––S.R[2]

The editor provided these footnotes:

  • Sashtanga Namaskar means “Prostration with eight members” – complete prostration at full length on the ground, to mark utmost veneration.
  • Vijanapanam means "This is my entreaty."

Physical description of letter
