Promoting Gurukula in America

July 28, 2011 |

Question: I have been teaching in ISKCON schools in the USA for the past 30 yrs. Some of these schools (in the past) had boys' ashrams, which I believe is a good thing provided there are qualified teachers. Most (if not all) of the present ISKCON schools in America are day schools. Do you think ashrams or gurukulas will ever be revived here in America in the near future? What can those of us who still believe in that system do to promote the idea?

Why I Don't Give Brahminical Initiation Easily

April 21, 2012 |

Question: 1) We see that Srila Prabhupada gave pancaratriki initiation (braminical) to many devotees without taking in consideration if the devotees were employed by some karmi neither if they had a braminical background.

Question:

1) We see that Srila Prabhupada gave pancaratriki initiation (braminical) to many devotees without taking in consideration if the devotees were employed by some karmi neither if they had a braminical background. Maharaja, you are very strict in following Srila Prabhupada. Why is that you have those policies to give second initiation?

2) I've heard (maybe even in one of your lectures or in conversations with your disciples) that you won't be giving second initiation to those working for other people (having a sudra occupation). Recently, I was asked to speak to bhakti-school students in the temple about the desire for second initiation and I also came across quotes, saying that chanting the Gayatri mantra gradually delivers one from the material clutches (CC Madhya 8.138) and even more, unless one is initiated as a brahmana, one cannot worship the holy name properly. Why, then, second initiation isn't given more freely, considering only the qualities of a disciple and not his ways of maintenance as well or the need of second initiation for service only?
