My Dear Nayana Bhiram,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated 3d May, 1971 and have noted the contents carefully. It is encouraging news that you are planning to open one center in Princeton, N.J. The university there is very prominent one. So open it as soon as possible.
Yes, I am glad to accept Nolen Pailey, Jr., Barry Frier, and Charlotte Johnson as my duly initiated disciples and just as soon as I secure the beads, I shall send them off, letters enclosed.
It is very nice that the Metropolitan Museum of Art in N.Y. was so favorably impressed with our Bhagavad Gita paintings and is now helping to get an exhibit in the public parks. And soon Farramarz Prabhu will be going there from N.Y. to help in management affairs. You may be interested to know that I have accepted him as my disciple, at the recommendation of Bhavananda, and his new name is Atreya Rsi.
Hoping this will find you in good health.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
