Gaura Purnima Initiation – 2019

Dear Devotees,

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

This is for your kind information that His Holiness Jayapataka Swami Maharaja has a tentative plan to give initiation on the most auspicious Gaura Purnima day on 21st March 2019. Devotees wishing to take Harinam (1st) and Brahmana (2nd) initiation from H.H. Jayapataka Swami Maharaja on this occasion, are requested to carefully go through the following information.

**Tentative date of Initiation: 21st March, 2019 (Thursday) **

** Last date of exam/interview at JPS office: 18th March (Monday) **

Devotees wishing to take initiation on this occasion; have to register with JPS office by no later than 20th January 2019, by submitting your details through the online registration form click here https://tinyurl.com/y8k4jrkv

For those who do not have internet access, may register by calling us on: (+91) 3472- 245277 during the office hours. You may also send a mail with the details of the candidates in an excel format to jpsofficedatabase@gmail.com to register the candidates’ name.

Working hours at JPS office: 10 am -5.30 pm (Mon-Fri); (Sunday closed, Saturday 10 am – 2 pm).

Please note that the completion of the ‘ISKCON Disciples Course (IDC)’ is mandatory to take initiation with effect from Janmastami 2015 as per the GBC mandate. For detailed information please visit the following link: http://gbc.iskcon.org/gbc_res/GBCRES14.html . Aspiring initiation candidates must show the original copy of the ISKCON Disciples Course completion certificate during the interview and submit a xerox copy of the same along with other initiation documents. NO INITIATIONS ARE ALLOWED WITHOUT IDC COMPLETION CERTIFICATE.

Special Note for Harinama Initiation candidates:

The temple presidents/yatra leaders/responsible congregation leaders are requested to send the data of their initiation candidates by no later than 20th January. Depending on the number of the total initiation candidates JPS office, discussing with Guru Maharaja and other concerned authorities, will make the necessary schedule of exam, interview and initiation dates. Please note that JPS Office will NOT entertain any candidates whose name has not been submitted by 20th January 2019 from the candidate or from the authority.

Special Note for Brahmana initiation candidates:

Due to Guru Maharaja’s current health situation, it has been decided that the devotees who have been engaged or will be engaged in the deity worship department in an established ISKCON TEMPLE will ONLY be eligible to attend the exam and interview for 2nd initiation in Gaura Purnima 2019. Therefore the concerned authorities are requested to recommend and send only those devotees names who are in the deity worship services in the temple, have duly passed the local temple test and acquired the minimum requirements to attend the philosophical exam and interview at JPS office. Based on the number of 2nd initiation candidates and the requirement of initiated brahmanas for deity worship, Guru Maharaja will decide how many devotees, out of the entire list, will be considered for granting 2nd initiation. Therefore the earlier you send your candidates’ list, the easier and quicker it is to take a decision for Guru Maharaja. Please note that, temple president’s recommendation letter, Bhakti sastri certificate etc are only the eligibility criteria for attending the initiation exam and interview. However the candidate has to pass the philosophical exam and interview to be finally qualified for 2nd initiation.       

PLEASE SEND THE LIST OF THE ELIGIBLE CANDIDATES BY NO LATER THAN 20TH JANUARY, 2019. NO OTHER CANDIDATES WILL BE GRANTED TO TAKE INITIATION DURING GAURA PURNIMA 2019 WHOSE NAMES ARE NOT SENT TO THE JPS OFFICE BY THIS DEADLINE.

The candidates or concerned ISKCON temple/yatra/Bhakti Vriksha authority are requested to kindly be in touch with the JPS office for any clarifications or for any further assistance.

It must be noted that this announcement is not any confirmation of initiation, it’s just to get the total number of prospective candidates. Therefore please do not book travel tickets in advance, for the initiation purpose, or make arrangements without contacting the JPS office before fixing your initiation exam/interview appointment time based on the progress of the procedure. Once the initiation program is finalized, we will post the the updates on this matter on the website (www.jayapatakaswamioffice.com) and other authorized media related to HH Jayapataka Swami.  

All are requested to cooperate with the JPS office to ensure a smooth initiation event.

Thank you.
