Letter to Kirtanananda

November 21, 1974

My Dear Kirtanananda Maharaja,

Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated October 18th, 1974, with your recommendations for first and second initiations. The following are those who I have accepted as my disciples and they are to be given the Hare Nama Initiation. Their names are as follows.

Jerry Boy—Janakisa Dasa.
Bill Jones—Bimbadhara Dasa.
Cris Hall—Krpamaya Dasa.

So far these second initiations are concerned, I accept the following as duly initiated twice born Brahmans.

Yajnabhuk Dasa.
Lalitasakhi Devi Dasi.
Rasa-lila Devi Dasi.

The appropriate sacred thread and mantra sheets are enclosed. You can chant on the beads and hold a fire sacrifice and the Gayatri Mantra can be listened to through the right ear from my tape recording.

I hope this meets you in good health,

Your ever well-wisher,

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
