731215 - Letter to Govardhan written from Los Angeles
December 15, 1973
My dear Govardhan,
Please accept my blessings. I hereby accept the devotees you have recommended for first and second initiation. Enclosed are three threads and six gayatri sheets for the second initiates. Hold a fire yajna, after which they may listen to the mantra once through the right ear from the cassette tape I have made.
The spiritual names of the first initiates are as follows:
Patrick - Khandaparasu dasa
Donale - Daruna dasa
Don Pearson - Dravinaprada dasa
Chuck - Caturbhava dasa
Judy - Rangavati dasi
All the devotees should collect Guru-daksina and send it to Karandhar in Los Angeles.
I hope this meets you well.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
