ISKCON laws requires that, during the first six months of following the four regulative principles and chanting sixteen rounds daily, a new devotee who is aspiring for initiation should not commit himself to a particular initiating guru. Rather, he should chant Srila Prabhupada's pranama-mantra and worship him as Founder-Acharya of ISKCON and as his siksa-guru. Thereafter, the devotee must pass the examination for shelter before requesting shelter on this form. After shelter is granted, you must aspire to be a disciple for at least another six months before initiation can be granted.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
If your request satisfies the requirements stated in ISKCON law, your request will be forwarded to Guru Maharaj, who will make the final decision on whether to grant you shelter.
