and your devotion has taken vibrations from me lots of times.
The physical contact and letter, too, are not always necessary,
for if the devotee with deep mental concentration broadcasts to his guru,
the guru receives and likewise silently sends forth the help needed....
Your difficulty lies in no other thing
but that you must reach greater depths in meditation.
Be happy to meditate; but never be satisfied
so that you think you have reached the end,
and so fail to make deeper efforts in meditation.
You must remember, that intensity in meditation
is of the greatest importance."
