Home Deities Gallery

2:55:00 PM By Vijay Teli , , No comments

For many members of our vibrant Hare Krishna community, worship of the Deity form of the Lord is not only something that happens at the temple, but also at home.

It is said that by serving the Deity of Krishna we understand ourselves to be His servant, with practical service to offer. Krishna is a person and when we care for Him, He reciprocates with us by purifying our heart and bringing us closer in our relationship with Him. Thus, many devotees choose to worship the lord in his Deity form in their homes (transforming their homes into temples)!

For some time. the ISKCON Toronto blog has featured an online gallery, , showcasing our community's "Home Deities"! This is an excellent opportunity to have virtual darshan of the various beautiful Deities being worshiped throughout our community.

If you would like us to include your deity pictures in the gallery please email a picture to us!
