750628 - Letter to Tulsi written from Denver
June 28, 1975
My Dear Tulsi das:
Please accept my blessings. I have received your request for initiations and I accept the following as my disciples and their spiritual names are as follows: Robin West—Rathagrahi dasa; David Moore—Disa dasa; and Dorrie Winham—Dharmada devi dasa.
I also accept the following as twice born brahmanas and their threads are enclosed duly sanctified: Citraka dasa, Ameyatma dasa, Guruttama dasa, Urjasvat dasa, Padmahara dasi, Manya dasa, Parvata Muni dasa, Nikunjavasini dasi, Krsna Lauliya dasi, Caitanya Simha dasa, and Racitambara dasi.
Now hold a fire sacrifice and impress upon them that they are taking vows before Radha Krsna, the spiritual master and the assembled Vaisnavas. It is a serious business.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Your ever well wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
