770116 - Letter to Balarama written from Calcutta
3 Albert Road, Calcutta
January 16, 1977
My dear Balarama dasa,
Please accept my blessings. I am in receipt of your two letters dated December 23rd and January 7th respectively, and have noted the contents. Enclosed please find a letter as you requested announcing my appointing Bali Mardan as GBC. Upon your recommendation, I am happy to accept Nakula dasa Adhikari for second initiation. Now hold a fire yajna, and play the tape into the right ear of me chanting Gayatri. Enclosed please find one sacred thread.
Hoping this will meet you in good health.
