:Krishna Balarama Mandir
My dear Adi Kesava,
Please accept my blessings. I am in receipt of your letter dated 3/8/76 which has just now reached me.
Upon your recommendation I am pleased to accept the boy you have recommended for initiation. His new name is Giridhari dasa. Please make sure he knows to strictly follow the four regulative principles and chant a minimum of sixteen rounds daily avoiding the ten offenses. Hold a fire sacrifice. Tamala Krsna may chant on his beads.
Hoping this will meet you in good health.
H.H. Adi Kesava Swami
