Dear Gurudev, Pranams and Dandavats, jaya Nitaiananda jaya Gauranga. I would like to ask a question in relation to second initation, what is your position on second initation, does it take place within your movement, thank you , I look forward to you reply, All Glories to Gurudev.


Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:


Yes, sure we impart the seven Gayatri Mantras imparted to us by our Guru varga for brahminical initiation. We also impart the Nityananda Gayatri Mantra in addition. In normal cases this is after six months to one year after Harinama Diksha as per as Shrila Prabhupada's standard. They have to be chanted 10 times each at the three junctions (sandhyas) of the day. But for constant chanting we recommend the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and the Hare Krishna Mahamantra. Nitai Gaura Naam and Hari Naam give strength to all Mantras in Kali Yuga.
