Selected Letters of Gandhi : Part-1


Chapter-31: How To Mark Auspicious Event

To a couple who sent a printed letter to him, mentioning the fact of their marriage and asking for his blessing.

We wish you would both render disinterested service. That the request for blessing should have been made on a printed card detracts from its value. If you seek blessings you should write in your own hand and state some good resolutions you have made to mark the auspicious event.
