  8. please, these are deities, not idols! Idols are images which are imagined, yet deities are forms Krishna himself describes according to scripture. Just as the murti or form of fire can be a flame, Krishna can accept the form of deity in wood, marble etc, to enable us to see him with our material vision. Spiritual practice will purify our material senses so that our relationship with Krishna, and the deity, deepens. If we think of the deity as an idol (or not really a manifestation of Krishna’s spiritual energy), Krishna will cease his interaction with us in this form, and we will indeed be engaging in idol worship.

  9. SIR

    CAN U TELL ME EVERY MONTH ON WHAT DATE THE EKADASHI VRATHAM FALLS. I AM STAYING ABROAD AND THERE IS NO WAY TO KNOW THIS.

    ALSO PLEASE LET ME KNOW I HAVE SOME IDOLS OF LORD GANAPATHI, LORD KRISHNA, LORD AYYAPPA ETC. CAN I WASH THIS IDOL WITH SOAP OR ANY OTHER DETERGENTS TO CLEAN THIS. PLEASE INFORM

    MRS.VIJAYA..
