711209 - Letter to Son and Daughter written from Delhi
December 9, 1971
Camp: 7-E Kamala Nagar, “Gita Bhawan,” Delhi-7, India.
My dear Son and Daughter,
Please accept my blessings. Upon the recommendation of Srivatsa I have gladly consented to accept both of you as my duly initiated disciples. Your beads have been duly chanted by me and they are sent under separate cover. I have given you the spiritual names as follows:
Joachim: Akrura das
Gabi: Khandabasi dasi
I am so glad to learn that both of you have been such great help to Srivatsa in our Berlin center. I can understand that you are a very sincere boy and girl and are very eligible candidates for going back to Home, back to Godhead. And the process is simple. Follow the regulative principles, chant at least 16 rounds of beads daily, read our literatures, go for street Sankirtan, etc. In this way keep yourselves engaged in Krishna’s business 24 hours and you will be really happy in this life and in the end reach the Supreme destination.
I hope this will meet both of you in good health,
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
