The effect of terms describing the anisotropic susceptibilities on the NMR shifts observed in superfluid He3 is discussed. It is shown that they are such that the isotropic susceptibility in the expressions of Leggett is replaced by the correct temperature-dependent susceptibilities. The anisotropy energies of the Balian-Werthamer (BW) state are calculated and shown to be of order (HTc)2 times those pinning the spin and orbit coordinates in either the BW or Anderson-Brinkman-Morel state.
