Question: If one has taken initiation with Gayatri mantra from another bona fide vaisnava sampradaya, like Sri Vaisnava sampradaya and now is inspired by Iskcon and Srila Prabhupada, can they take initiation from an Iskcon guru too? If he is chanting 16 rounds of Maha mantra, following the regulative principles, doing service in the temple?

Jayapataka Swami: I don’t know if a person has received mantra from another sampradaya. Sometimes, Sri sampradaya gives a branding samskara but they don’t give the mantra. In such a case, I don’t think that they are initiated. But if they are initiated then they can accept Iskcon guru as siksa guru. Haribol!
