(HH Kadamba Kanana Swami, Soweto South Africa, 15h April 2012) Lecture: CC Talk
How would a devotee know if he/she is ready for initiation?
If you want to take initiation then you have to have the desire to do it. First of all it has to come from you, not from us. Not that I’d say:
‘Hey take initiation.’
Maybe sometimes I may say it but not all of the times, since you must want it. When you desire it then:
‘Yeah but you have to prepare a little bit. You have to start practising it nicely everyday. Build it up and when you build up some spiritual strength then it is really nice.’
It’s a change. We don’t feel like, it’s a change and it’s not like that. Okay it does something to you and then you prepare for the second initiation.
