Jayapataka Swami: Second initiation is not absolutely required. But taking the second initiation brings you closer to the spiritual master, and allows you to engage in deity worship. And also engage in different sacrifices. If one takes second initiation, they should do something connected with the deities, either cooking or worshiping or something as far as possible and as needed.
