Guru Maharaj: My dear aspiring disciples. If people take initiation they are guaranteed a place at Lord Kṛṣṇa’s lotus feet. But if people chant without taking initiation, then they also get some blessing. Some people get delivered; some may come back. So, we pray that they can take birth in the family of devotees. Sometimes they want to take initiation, somehow, they pass away before. So, they may get the mercy of Kṛṣṇa by chanting the holy name. If someone has the possibility of getting initiation, but doesn’t want it, because of their false ego or something, then what will happen to them is not clear. But definitely they will be benefited by chanting the holy name.
