Srila Prabhupada gives ring for Joshomatinanadan Dasa marriage
Joshomatinandan : After three or four months in L.A., I wrote
to Prabhupada about getting married and Prabhupada said, "I
heard that you want to get married. That is very nice.
Husband and wife, double strength." Then when Prabhupada
came to L.A. in December, Jayatirtha prabhu performed a fire
sacrifice and Prabhupada gave my wife, who was also his
disciple, a ring from his finger. And because we were going to
India, he gave us a lot of blessings and encouragement. We
have been married 30 years now.
