760930 - Letter to Vicitravirya written from Vrndavana
Shri Krishna Balaram Mandir,
Chattikara Rd., Raman Reti,
Vrindaban, Mathura, U.P., INDIA
30th Sept., 1976
My dear Vicitravirya,
Please accept my blessings. With reference to your letter to Harikesa dated 14th inst., on your recommendation I am accepting the following disciples for first initiation.
Radha Krishna Pillay—Rama-Sarana Dasa
Gordon McMillan—Gaura-Nitai Dasa
Brian Daulby—Bhajanananda Dasa
Eamon Morton—Atmatma Dasa
Benedict Bygott-Webb—Bhagavad-bhakta Dasa
Gabriel Zajac—Giri-Govardhana Dasa
Tony Smullen—Tulasi-priya Dasa
Janet Pillay—Janaki Devi Dasi
Laureanne Mcmillan—Lal Gopala Devi Dasi
Hold a fire sacrifice and the disciples may receive their names at that time. Jayatirtha may chant on the beads and give them to the devotees. All initiates must chant minimum 16 rounds on the beads daily and very strictly follow the four regulative principles to insure progress in Krishna Consciousness.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Sriman Vicitravirya das,
