Letter to Ghanasyama

Tridandi Goswami
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami


February 16, 1973

My dear Son,

Please accept my blessings. On the recommendation of Satsvarupa I am herein accepting you as my initiated disciple. Henceforth your name will be GHANASYAMA DASA. Now you must agree to very rigidly follow the rules and regulations, i.e. chanting sixteen rounds of beads daily, rising early and attending Mongul Aratik, observing the four principles, attending the classes, eating only bhagawat prasadam as well as working under the instruction of my representatives, such as your GBC representative and Temple President, and if you follow this procedure very strictly then your life will be glorious and you will go back to Home, back to Godhead, this I can guarantee. I hope this meets you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,


A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
