My dear Jagadisha,
Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated December 10th, 1975. I accept all the recommended devotees as my duly initiated disciples. Now hold a fire ceremony, and instruct the new devotees to chant 16 rounds daily and follow the regulative principles of devotional service. Their initiated names are as follows:
Bhakta Benoit - Jayagovinda das
Bhakta Arthur - Sadapusta das
Bhakta Alain - Paranagra das
Bhakta Michel - Vidyaraja das
Bhaktin Louise - Sarada dasi
Bhaktin Elizabeth - Ambhoda dasi
Bhaktin Joyce - Syamaballabha dasi
I accept Medhya devi dasi for brahminical initiation. She should hear the mantra from the tape recording through the right ear. Brahmin initiation means to keep very clean- inside by chanting the Lord's glories, and outside by regular bathing. See that she is instructed on all these things.
I hope this meets you in the best of health.
