<< 3 Spiritual Initiation >>

Indradyumna Swami: I accepted Vraja Līlā dāsī as my disciple in May 1992. Seeing that she was a very sincere devotee who didn’t have long to live, I gave her brāhmaṇa initiation only a few months afterwards. Six months later, Gāndharvikā Giridhārī dāsī, my first Russian disciple, who had been taking care of her full-time for several months, approached me and asked if she and Vraja Līlā could go to Vrndāvana. She wanted Vraja Līlā to be able to prepare to leave her body in the holy dhāma. I agreed, knowing that Vraja Līlā would become inspired in her Kṛṣṇa consciousness in Vrndāvana.
