John Lennon of The Beatles’ verified Instagram account has shared a photo of the little-known letter which John Lennon wrote to his fan, Mr. Bulla from India.

Here is the letter:

“LETTER TO MR. BULLA, 1968
Dear Mr. Bulla,

Thanks for your letter – If every request like yours was granted – there would be no ‘huge treasure’ as you call it. You say ‘peace of mind minus all other things on earth is equal to nothing’ – this doesn’t make sense. To have peace of mind one would have to have all that one desires – otherwise where is the peace of mind?

Even a ‘poor’ clerk can travel the world – as many people do – including friends of mine some of whom are at this academy now, all equally ‘poor’. All you need is initiative – If you don’t have this I suggest you try transcendental meditation through which all things are possible.

With love,
John Lennon
Jai guru dev.

John Lennon, Rishikesh, India, April 1968.”
