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.

Attachment to Chanting
'Those who have taken initiation must always chant. You can chant Hare Krishna the whole day, and if you can chant without offences, the result will come quickly. The Holy Name is nondifferent from Krishna, it is transcendental, so it comes to your tongue on its own.'

 

Samsara-davanala
'One who very carefully recites aloud this Sri Gurvastakam during the brahma-muhurta (the ninety-six minute period before sunrise) attains direct service to the Lord of Vrindavan at the end of life.'

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“The Lord bestows greater mercy upon the humble, and pride and humility do not co-exist.”

 

Your Narayan is sitting in Vaikuntha on His vyasa-asan, and is so great, but why is it then that Laksmi Devi left Him and is crying now in the jungle?
