Gandhi Gram Road,
Dear Batua Gopal,
Please accept my blessings. I have accepted the devotees recommended by you for first initiations, and their spiritual names are as follows.
Dan McGready---Divyanga dasa
Michelle-----------Maharajni devi dasi
Paula--------------Pramada devi dasi
Their beads may be chanted on by Jagadisha Prabhu. Please impress upon them that their chant must avoid the ten offenses, and that they must chant the minimum 16 rounds without fail, and be very careful to keep themselves free of the four sinful activities. They are in your charge so you must set the example.
I am also sending gayatri and sacred thread for Rasikananda das Brahmachary for his second initiation, and also Gouranga devi dasi.
