My Dear Uttama Sloka,

Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated July 18th. Thank you for your report of the Toronto activities. Regarding the initiations, I think that everyone has been initiated in New Vrndavana recently.

Regarding women worshiping the deity, in the Bhagavad-gita it is stated striyo vaisyas tatha sudras te 'pi yanti param gatim. The idea is that everyone who is properly initiated and following the rules and regulations can worship the deity.

I hope this letter meets you in good health.

Your ever well wisher,

[signed]
