Question: When a devotee accepts initiation, just like when a person is born materially and he or she is a baby and gradually grows. What is the situation of the person when he is spiritually initiated, what is the situation like in terms of material growth, is he a baby in spiritual life or is he an adult in spiritual life?

Jayapatākā Swami: Śrīla Prabhupāda said first initiation is spiritual birth. Second initiation is like 12 years old. So a little baby if he makes a mess parents tolerate, but if a 12-year-old passes in the lap of the parent, then there is something wrong!...
