Guru Maharaj: Since the name of Krishna is not different from Krishna somehow by chanting the name of Krishna, one may also achieve the highest perfection. But the secure way is to take initiation from the authorized guru parampara, and then in that way serve Krishna. So you see Krishna gives you the opportunity to take initiation, but out of false ego, you don’t do it, then it is not really Krishna’s fault. If He gives you some help, you should take it. So during this lock down period, I am also giving initiation on the internet by Zoom. I know that other Gurus are also doing the same thing. So if one is qualified, then they can take initiation, they don’t have to wait for the guru to physically come there. Hare Krishna!
