Letter to Gopijanabalhava


Hare Krishna Land,
Gandhi Gram Road,
Juhu, Bombay 54, INDIA

April 16, 1974

Dear Gopijanabalhava,

Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated April 3, 1974. The names submitted by you for initiation of devotees in our New York temple are duly accepted by me. The spiritual names of my new disciples are as follows:

Charles Schisler—Caturvyuha dasa
Edward D. Schindler—Indriyesa dasa
Humberto Colonia—Hunkara dasa
Joe Fairbank—Janesvara dasa
Nick D'Angelo—Nirantara dasa
Peter Drivas—Preraka dasa
Walter Bryant—Uttariyadhara dasa
Wayne Boyd—Vipramukhya dasa
Roy Edwards—Ramabhadra dasa

Now so many new devotees have to be carefully kept and instructed so from the beginning they chant 16 rounds daily without fail and always keep the four prohibitive principles very strictly. The GBC man, Bali Mardan may chant on their beads and you may hold a fire yajna in the temple.

Your ever well-wisher,

[unsigned]
