My dear Bhagavan, 

Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated February 2. 

Regarding the first volume of Srimad-Bhagavatam, your ideas are very good. Yes, print Krishna-Balarama on the front and the creation on the end pages as you have said. 

The Bhaktisastri test will not be held this year, but it will be held next year. 

So from your letters, I think things are going nicely, please continue. The book is also nice. Now sell them in huge quantity and print again. 

Yes, it is good that you are opening a small centre in Belgium. 

The boys you have recommended may be initiated. Hold a fire sacrifice and they may vow before the deity, the spiritual master and the fire that they will chant minimum 16 rounds daily and follow the four regulative principles. Their names are as follows: 

Jean Jacques Poree—Yajnesa dasa
Bruno Vigneron—Brahma-jyestha dasa
Pierre Cortier—Pranesvara dasa
Claude Maurin—Kutastha dasa
Aziz Neilli—Akhilesvara dasa
______ 

Christian—Jagadvasi dasa
Jean Claude—Yajnabhuk dasa
Christian Mauvillain—Jagatsrasta dasa
Dairo Lopez—Devarat dasa
Ian Johnston—Aniha dasa
Christan Le Paumier—Jagannidhi dasa
Georges Mauvillain—Ghora dasa
Nestor de Guili—Niramaya dasa 

The photograph of the Gaura Nitai deities is very nice and I have having the picture of the Geneva temple framed and placed on my wall. 

I hope this meets you well. 

Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
