Initiiation Policy Update

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

Dear Devotees,

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

We hope you will find the new Initiation Procedures & Standards Policy more informative and fairer. The standards have been revised and separated into two categories; essential and desirable, making them more realistically achievable.

Devotees who feel they are ready for first or second initiation, email the information requested below to 

1) your legal name and, if applicable, your spiritual name

2) your contact telephone no.

3) whether you are desiring first or second initiation

4) name of your Sanga/Bhakti Vriksha/Nama Hatta leader

5) name of your mentor

The new Initiation Procedures & Standards Policy will apply to ALL devotees from 01/01/14.  In all cases, any letters of recommendation for initiation will be valid for a period of one year only. Devotees are therefore strongly advised that they as soon as possible:

  • read through the new policy
  • register with the Mentorship System
  • begin following the procedures and standards as set out in the new policy

See below to view the Initiation Procedures & Standards Policy. We request all devotees to carefully read through the policy as it is very likely that it will affect you at some stage in your Krishna conscious journey whether you aspire for initiation in the future, or whether you are already initiated and are guiding someone else.
