Guru or Spiritual Master: Diksha Guru

                                                                  Q. I had taken shelter from a spiritual master and he from his pure lips mentioned, "I can initiate you anytime," and later confirmed that he will be initiating me in the coming initiation function. However, later by Krishna's mercy the spiritual master left his body. As I have already accepted him as my spiritual master, is it still necessary for me to get initiated from a different spiritual master. Isn't the promise from the spiritual master indicative that I am already his initiated disciple?

                                                                  Q. Let us assume hypothetically that someone accepts the Bhagavad Gita of Srila Prabhupada, and decides to follow and accept that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Then he realizes his inability to choose a guru who is a pure devotee. If he then resorts to simply following Prabhupada, but accepting that he is not a diksha disciple of Prabhupada but a siksha disciple, can he go back to Godhead by following the instructions of Prabhupada and chanting?

                                                                  Q. My sister and I have been receiving instructions for some time from a very nice devotee. Now we want to approach him for initiation. However his guru is also present in body and we are not sure what the protocol is in such a situation. Also should we take the initiative and approach him or wait for his approval and desire to initiate us?
