Question:

Few years back, at ISKCON Yamunanagar temple in Haryana, India, I attended a lecture by a devotee from ISKCON Delhi who was on guest visit. When asked about the importance of initiation in chanting, he told that without being initiated, our chanting the rounds is nearly ineffective. Only after initiation from spiritual master does our real chanting begins. He gave an analogy that without being initiated, our 64 rounds of chanting will hardly equal 16 rounds of an initiated person. Since then my interest in chanting has been flickering and I feel there is no use to chant if it doesn't count at all. And I do not thing I am qualified to be initiated now or ever in my life. Though I may chant sometimes, but in deep core of heart, these words discourage me every time. Please help.

Question:

I've one particular doubt regarding criticizing of Bogus gurus, sadhus etc. Whether a devotee should criticize and speak harshly about such scruplous persons in the community of devotees or not? Some devotees say that its better to stay away from criticizing anyone. They say that gradually that will lead one to the platform of criticizing devotees. Is it true? Is it so that if a devotee (of any level) doesn't criticize such persons, he is supporting them or he's soft hearted? Does criticizing such persons help us Advancing in Bhakti? Can Kanishtas do this? I'm confused and need Some guidance maharaj.
