At the house of Atula Krishna Prabhu and Lasyamayi Devi Dasi in Terni, Sripad Tridandi Maharaj from the London Math made preparations for the initiation ceremony.
Everything had been prepared for Simone and Virginia who would take shelter of Srila Govinda Maharaj through ritvik initiation.
The offerings which were prepared with care and devotion were beautiful.
Sripad Tridandi Maharaj prepared the japa, japa-bag, Tulasi neck beads and a photo of Srila Gurudeva to give to the aspiring devotees.
Sripad Tridandi Maharaj led a mellow kirttan to prepare the mood for the ceremony.
Before proceeding with the ceremony, he explained a few things about Krishna Consciousness and surrender to Guru.
Simone, who is now Syamarupa Prabhu, paid his obeisances to Sri Guru.
Sripad Tridandi Maharaj chanted on the beads to infuse them with Harinam...
