Question: Why Take Initiation?

Please accept my humble obeisances.

Guruji,

Could you please tell me why do people take initiation? If one does not take initiation, what happens to that devotee on the judgment day?

Answer: To Become Qualified for Going Back to Godhead

Initiation means that one promises to always follow the teachings of Krishna in all times, places, and circumstances. If one is not willing to commit himself to following Krishna's teachings, why would Krishna want to bring such a person back to His eternal abode? Therefore, such a commitment is necessary if one wants to go back to Godhead at the time of death.
