Sriman Madhavananda dasa
4 rue le Suer
Paris, France

My Dear Madhavananda dasa,

Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated July 25, 1975 and I am glad to know that everything is going on well in the Paris temple. Upon your recommendation I am accepting the following as my initiated disciples:

Olivier Anconne Bhusana dasa
Frank     Visodhana das
Frances Marlier    Anisa devi dasi

Also upon your recommendation, I am accepting the following as twice-born initiated brahmins:

Indriyadamana dasa Brahmacary
Mahabala dasa Brahmacary
Brajisma dasa Brahmacary
Vrsaktri dasa Brahmacary
Avyaya dasa Adhikary
Jyestha devi dasi
Navalanga devi dasi

Their sanctified threads and mantra sheets are enclosed. Please hold the fire sacrifice and impress upon them that they are taking vows before Radha Krsna, the Spiritual Master, and the assembled Vaisnavas. Please see that they are chanting 16 rounds and following the four regulative principles. This is your responsibiity.

I hope this meets you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
