My dear Batu Gopala,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated June 8th, 1975 and have noted the contents. I accept the persons you have recommended for initiation (first). Their names are as follows, Bill--Bhama dasa, Brenda--Brahma-vadini devi dasi, Michael--Mahana dasa. Their beads may be chanted by Kirtanananda Swami. Also, I have accepted Divyanga dasa for 2nd initiation. His thread and mantra sheet are enclosed herein. Let him hear the tape of myself chanting gayatri mantra through his right ear.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
Enc: 1 thread, 1 mantra sheet.
