Sriman Batu Gopa dasa

E. Cleveland, Ohio
My Dear Batu Gopal dasa,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated July 16, 1975, and have noted the contents. Upon your recommendation, I am hereby accepting the following as my initiated disciples:
Shombe Lumkin Sri Lanka dasa
I also accept upon your recommendation the second brahminical initiation for Murari Chaitanya dasa. His sanctified thread and mantra sheet are enclosed. Please have a fire sacrifice and impress upon them that they are accepting vows before Radha-Krsna, the Spiritual Master, and the assembled Vaisnavas. The mantra should be heard through the right ear from my recorded tape.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
