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.

''Time has passed as I have been busy in my material life, and I have got nothing, only became burdened. What sort of world is this?' In this world there is no want of food, no want of money, no want of anything except only one thing...'

 

Thakura vaisnava-gana
'Lust, anger, greed, illusion, pride, and ego all pull me in their own directions. Thus my mind wanders like a blind man who does not know the right way from the wrong way.'

Separation does not come in one day. When you connect with your Guru every day, serve him, live with him, have that continuous relation, then slowly, slowly separation comes.
