September 20, 1976

My Dear Acyuta das,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated August 7, 1976 and the enclosed Magazine article. The article looks very nice and the pictures are very positively descriptive. Continue your nice preaching work there with great enthusiasm.

On your recommendation I am accepting the following disciples for first and second initiation.

First Initiation
Bhakta Ivan...............Indrasena dasa
Bhaktin Dora..............Dharma-patni dasi
Bhakta Manuel.............Madhupati dasa
Bhakta Mozart.............Madhava-priya dasa
Bhakta Ramacandra.........Rangapuri dasa
Bhakta Luchie.............Lilasuka dasa
Bhakta Paulo..............Ananta-padmanabha dasa
Second Initiation
Paravyoma das brahmacary
Durasada dasa brahmacary
Mahayogisvara devi dasi
Madhusvara devi dasi

Please hold a fire sacrifice and the first initiated disciples may receive their names at that time while the brahmana initiates may hear the mantra through the right ear and receive the threads. Hrdayananda Maharaj may chant on the beads and give them to the devotees. All initiates must chant minimum 16 rounds on the beads daily and very strictly follow the four regulative principles to insure success on the path of spiritual progress of life. A brahmana must be clean by bathing and chanting daily. I hope this meets you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,
