One Becomes Dāsa or Dāsī When Initiated by the Guru (09/05/12)
Dear ______ Dāsī
Thanks for such a nice report. Mas Mexicanos en Jardines de Govinda es muy bueno!
You will be having your second child soon. Well, if it is a girl then I suggest the name ______. If it is a boy then I suggest the name Sītānātha. But if you like another name of your choice then that is also very good. When children are born they do not receive ‘Dāsa’ or ‘Dāsī’ as part of their name. One only becomes ‘Dāsa’ or ‘Dāsī’ when being initiated by the spiritual master.
