December 15, 1973
My dear Kurusrestha,
Please accept my blessings. I am in receipt of your letter dated December 7, 1973 along with the wonderful photos of Denver Temple. Thank you very much. I am very pleased. Carry on as you are doing. When I return to the U.S. next summer I will certainly consider visiting there.
I hereby accept the devotees as you have recommended for initiation and their names are as follows:
Emil—Svavasa dasa Mike—Vyapi dasa Joe—Naikatma dasa Wally—Naikarmakrt das
You may send their beads of Kirtanananda Maharaja for chanting upon.
I hope this meets you well.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
