Letter to Panca Dravida Maharaj

Sri Krishna Balaram Mandir

Vrindavana, Math. Dist. U.P.

September 20, 1976

My Dear Panca Dravida Maharaj,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated 3, September, 1976 and have noted the contents with care. On your recommendation I am accepting the following as my duly initiated disciples.

First Initiation

Bhakta Gustavo..........Gunesvara dasa
Bhakta Damian...........Deva-srestha dasa
Bhakta Marceline........Mathura-mandala dasa
Bhakta Javier...........Japananda dasa
Bhakta Kique............Kasi Misra dasa
Bhakta Osvaldo..........Agnipati dasa
Bhakta Juan.............Sacisuta dasa

Second Initiation

Caitanya Svarupa das brahmacary
Nitya Tripta das brahmacary

Hold a fire sacrifice and Hrdayananda Maharaj may chant on the beads. Give the bead, threads, and names at this time and the gayatri mantra may be heard by tape through the right ear. All initiated disciples must chant at least 16 rounds of Hare Krishna Maha-mantra daily on the beads and the brahmanas must remain clean outside by regularly bathing and clean inside by chanting the maha-mantra.

I hope this meets you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,


A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
