Jayapataka Swami: As far as benefit of taking initiation directly or virtually, if you feel initiated you feel connected to the guru, that is what counts. Śrīla Prabhupāda had initiated many devotees by letter. And now sometimes due to the pandemic we have initiations virtually. So, if the spiritual master is accepting you, you are accepting him, then what is the difference?
