July 02, 1975
Please accept my blessings.
I am in due receipt of your letter dated July 2, 1975. Upon your recommendation, I am accepting the following twice born brahmanas; Koshalendra Das Adhikari, Jyoti Das Adhikari. Enclosed please find their threads sanctified by me. I also accept as my initiated disciples the following devotees and their spiritual names follow: Al Rhiener—Adhata, Cleef Athey—Kamari Das.
Please see that they are chanting 16 rounds & following the four regulative principles.
Now hold a fire sacrifice and let the brahmanas hear the Gayatri mantra tape that I have spoken in their right ear.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Your ever well wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
