Initiation Information

Dear and respected Temple Presidents, BV/Yatra Leaders, 

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and his sincere followers. 
We hope that devotees in your congregation are keeping well by maintaining social distance and other safety precautions ordered by the governments in respective countries. Our prayer from Sri Mayapur dhama to Sri Sri Radha Madhava, Sri Sri Pancatattva and Lord Narasimhadeva is on for the well-being of everyone.
His Holiness Jayapataka Swami Maharaja would like to know how many of the aspiring initiation candidates, from your temple/BV/yatra, are ready for initiation. Based on your response, JPS Office will submit a report consisting a list of prospective and qualified initiation candidates to His Holiness. After further discussion, we will decide whether we can arrange for any online initiations for the qualified devotees who are willing to take initiation now. You need to ensure that philosophical tests are conducted, interviews are taken and they have duly passed through the local initiation process.

Having ensured that the candidates have duly passed and all documents are sent to the above email addresses, JPS office will then conduct the oral interview of the candidates to finalize the qualified candidates’ list for initiation. We will then set a convenient date for different zones in the world after discussing with the respective temple presidents and conduct the initiations accordingly.

Thank you.

Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada
