Some Hindu Mantras are said to require iniation before chanting.
I’ve found some Mantras to the Vedic deities on YouTube. Listened to one and it was refreshing. Now I tried chanting it and the deity told me it’s okay and that the initiation story for the most part is a myth and advised me in a way to chant the Mantra as it may be beneficial to me.
The question is do those of you who are experienced think it’s okay? I personally have had no problems with it so far.
