Dear Gurudev, Pranams and Dandavats, jaya Nitaiananda jaya Gauranga. I wouldlike to ask a question in relation to second initation,what is your position on second initation, does it take place within yourmovement, 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 Mantrain addition. In normal cases this is after six months to one year after HarinamaDiksha as per as Shrila Prabhupada's standard. They have to be chanted 10 timeseach at the three junctions (sandhyas) of the day.But for constant chanting we recommend the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and the Hare Krishna Mahamantra. Gauranama and Harinama givestrength to all Mantras in Kali Yuga.You can refer to the Blueprint Tabel of Gauranga Dharma for furthurinformation on the five levels.
