In this age of Kali, Harinam is the main means to get Krishna, but we take the second initiation to get more connection with the Guru, to get more connection and attachment with service, also the second initiation is necessary to cook and give archan, puja to the Deities.

You can chant Harinam maha-mantra everywhere—even in the bathroom, or toilet; but you cannot chant this gayatri mantra everywhere. You must recite the gayatri mantra not loudly, in a very soft voice, in front of the Deities. Face the East in the morning, and the North in the evening. You should recite the gayatri mantra in the morning, at noon, and in the evening, but if it is not possible, then you must recite it minimum two times a day.

You must first bathe, put tilaks on twelve places of your body, wear clean clothes, and purify yourself with the Ganges water. Then, on a clean asan (seat), you can recite the gayatri mantra. Place your right hand at your navel and counting on your fingers as I am showing you, recite the mantras ten times each.

Now I am giving you the mantras, you will not remember them now, but they will give you a paper where they are written, and you can read and remember the gayatri mantras and recite then them by memory.

At Nityananda Prabhu's Feet
'Today in a very beautiful way we have concluded the celebration of Sri Nityananda Prabhu's appearance festival. It is not every day that we can come to the lotus feet of Sri Nityananda Prabhu: we must pray to the lotus feet of Nityananda Prabhu.'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Lord Damodara, just as the two sons of Kuvera—Manigriva and Nalakuvara—were delivered from the curse of Narada and made into great devotees by You in Your form as a baby tied with rope to a wooden grinding mortar, in the same way, please give to me Your own prema-bhakti. I only long for this and have no desire for any kind of liberation.'

If we depend on ourselves, we feel unhappy when something happens in our life,
but a surrendered soul is never unhappy.
