Home Deity Worship

with special guests HG Murli Manohara Das, head pujari at ISKCON London


“This Deity worship – this is training. The same thing will continue when you go to Vaikuntha or Vrndavana.” (Srila Prabhupada, lecture on SB 2.3.1-3 – Los Angeles, May 22, 1972)


Deity worship is a key means by which to develop a personal conception of the Lord and the mood of service. In the home, it can help to make the Lord the centre of the household and worshippers to purify their existence. Ultimately it is the training ground for the spiritual world, and thus a fundamental aspect of one’s development in Krishna consciousness.


However the whole thing can seem extremely complicated. How does one start, and what standards should one follow? Can anyone perform deity worship? Which deities to go for? There can seem like an unending list of questions, of all which this seminar aims to answer. Murli Manohara das will clear any misconceptions both philosophical and practical by the end of this seminar.
