  • Hare krsna prabhuji i m class 12 student i m also chanting 16 rounds and i m only devotee in my home u should not get initiation in nondevotee family until u get a job because being asuras they will oppose bhakti and this can lead to morre problem if u r i initiated and dont follow the rules so now dont focus on diksha focus on following simply regulative principles some book reading and 16 rounds nothing else jai srila prabhupada

    Hare Krsna prabhuji,

    Danvat pranam.

    To get second initiation, one has to be have harinaam initiation, then one has to have read a set of books, pass a set of exams or have Bhakti Shastri degree.

    COncentrate on your studies now son. There is time for everything in life. Right now, if your results are not good, your parents and everyone else around you will blame ISKCON.

    For now, simply chant and read small books of Srila Prabhupada to the extent possible.


    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD
