Letter №25 p. 1

Mr. Sinnett — you will receive a long letter — posted Sunday at Bombay — from the Brahmin boy. Koot-hoomi went to see him (as he is his chela) before going into "Tong-pa-ngi" — the state in which he now is — and left with him certain orders. The boy has a little bungled up the message so be very careful before you show it to Mr. Hume lest he should again misunderstand my Brother's real meaning. I will not stand any more nonsense, or bad feeling against him, but retire at once.

We do the best we can. M.


Tong-pa-ngi (sTong-pa-ñid) is the Tibetan term for "emptiness" (Sk. Sunyata).
