Mr. Suzanne Whull
Dear Mr. Whull:
As interest rates change, new financial opportunities arise. And as life changes, new spiritual opportunities arise. This holiday season, as you consider new ways of investing your funds - say, shifting into the bond market and out of stocks - why not take a moment to consider new ways of investing in things spiritual? For example, why not shift some of your funds into a lovely donation to the Sri Swami Suchabananarama Jimbo Ashram, Dude Ranch, Fat Farm and Discount Auto Retread Tyre Centre?*
Your contributions are, as always, completely tax deductible, and you can bet your good deed will be completely deductible against any bad karma you may have engendered during the year. You win both ways!
For the second year, the Swami Jimbo Foundation for Starving Philosophers is looking for handouts--er, seeking your support. Tax-deductible contributions in United States currency are always appreciated in any amount (especially over $1,000).
BUT: if you would rather make a holiday contribution in the form of an actual gift item, please peruse the enclosed, earmarked pages from several mail-order catalogs. They will guide you in the proper choice of gift.
As always, Swami sends you his blessings, and with your contribution he will, well, send you even more blessings! How about that?
Sat Chit Ananda
