My dear Adi Kesava das
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated Jan. 8th, 1975 and have noted the contents. Regarding your proper engagement you should first discuss that with your GBC and try to work something out together. Regarding your questions. I have already answered the most important question. "How to please Krishna?"—by following all the regulative principle that I have given you chanting 16 rounds and reading my books scrutinizingly. Everyone must do these things otherwise they cannot understand Krishna Consciousness.
I have accepted the four persons that you have recommended for second initiation and their threads and mantra sheet are enclosed herein. I have also accepted the six persons you have recommended for first initiation. Their names are: Edward—Sadāsiva dasa Robert—Rupa dasa Susan—Sitapati dasi Theothora--Tryadhīsa dasī Mildred—Mahālaksmī dasi David—Dharmasetu dāsa. Their beads can be chanted on by Kirtanananda Svami.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Enc: 3 threads and mantra sheet.
