Excerpt from Father-to-son Letter

The following is an excerpt from the alleged final letter from HH Bhaktivinoda Thakura to his son, Bhaktisiddanta Saraswati Thakura: “When I am not present any more, please take care to serve Sri Mayapur Dham which is so dear to you. This is my special instruction to you. People who are like animals can never attain devotion; therefore never take their suggestions. But do not let them know this directly or indirectly.” Since I have no reference, I am using the word “alleged.”
