Krishna Balarama Mandir
My Dear Bahudak,
Please accept my blessings. I am in receipt of your request for initiations.
Upon your recommendation I will accept the following devotees for first initiation, as well as the ones you have recommended for second initiation. Hold a fire ceremony and instruct the devotees to follow the regulative principles and to chant a minimum of 16 rounds every day. Play the tape of me chanting gayatri into the right ear of the second initiates. Their beads may be chanted on by Ramesvara Maharaj. The names of the new initiates are:
Mark L.—Madhu Pandita dasa
John B.—Janapati dasa
James H.—Jaya Hari dasa
Hoping this will meet you in good health.
Sriman Bahudak dasa Adhikari
