My Dear Doug Russell, (Asurakula Nasana, [handwritten)
Please accept my blessings. Upon the recommendation of Rsavdeva Das I am accepting you as my initiated disciple. Your spiritual name is now Asurakula Nasana [handwritten) Dasa, the servant of the killer of the descendants of the asuras. Krishna, He killed so many demons, so in this age of demoniac tendency, we may not kill the demons like Krishna did it, but we can kill the demoniac tendency. How is that? By this Samkirtan weapon. That is the specific contribution by Lord Chaitanya, Krishna Himself, in this Kali yuga. So I am informed that you are the Samkirtan leader for Laguna Beach temple, so you should very enthusiastically lead the Samkirtan party, and in this way you will very successfully kill the demoniac tendency of the rascals.
So you send a copy of this letter to Kirtanananda Swami and he will chant on your beads. . And you be sure to chant 16 rounds minimum as a daily practice, and this will keep you most fitted Samkirtan leader.
I hope this meets you in good health.
