Letter to Mahamsa Swami

Krishna Balaram Mandir
Raman Reti, Vrindaban

August 16,               74

His Holiness Mahamsa Swami
Hare Krishna Land
Nampally Station Road
Hyderabad- A.P.

My Dear Mahamsa Swami:
Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated August 12, 1974. Regarding the initiations I have accepted them as my disciples and their spiritual names are as follows:
Krishna das- Kauravesvara
Ravindra-- Raghavendra
You may hold a fire sacrifice and chant on their beads and impress upon them they are taking vows before Radha and Krsna, the spiritual master, and the Vaishnavas. They must always chant 16 rounds daily and avoid the four sinful activities.
I hope this meets you in good health.

Your ever well wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
