Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

What should I chant when offering obeisances to home Deities and temple Deities?

Generally, when paying obeisances to the Deities anywhere we offer obeisances to the Guru because by guru's grace we have some association with the Deity, then you can offer whatever prayers to the Lord you prefer from the Srimad-Bhagavatam, Brahma Samhita etc.

If you are not initiated then offer pranams to Srila Prabhupada:

namah om vishnu padaya krishna presthaya bhu-tale
shrimate bhaktivedanta swamin iti namine
namaste sarasvate deve gaura vani pracharine
nirveshesha shunyavadi paschatya desha tarine

Hope this is helpful
