Hare Krsna,

Please accept my humble obeisances,

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada,

I am worshipping Srimati Radharani and Krsna deities along with Nitai Gauranga deities.

A deity of Balaram is manifested in our house. They are supposed to be Krsna and Balaram deities but somehow only Balaram reached us from Vrindavan.

Is it possible to worship them together, Krsna in the centre, Radharani at right, Balaram at left?

I will be happy to worship them like that but I don't know if it is possible?

    I cangive you two suggestions, see if any one of them works for you or not.

    1. You take a picture of Balaram ji and Krishna and worship them on your alter. Along with deities of Radha Krishna,  Gour Nitai. And keep Balaramji's deity in rest(sayan) in loker and take him out on special festival like Balaram Jayanti, Gopasthami etc. (Utsav Vigraha)

    2. You get a Krishna for Balaram ji. And you can worship just like ISKCON Vrindaban or ISKCON Ujjain. Sri Gour Nitai, Krishna Balaram and Radha Krishna.

    Dear Inci Mataji,

    Please accept my humble obeisances.

    All glories to Srila Prabhupada.


    Lord Krishna would be ashamed to fully express His conjugal feelings towards Radharani in the presence of His elder brother Balarama. Only Radhika's girlfriends and assistants are allowed into the most intimate pastimes of the conjugal rasa...


    When holding up the Govardhana hill, Lord Krishna looked at the breasts of the Gopis, and His hand started trembling and Govardhana started shaking a little bit. So some Vrajavasis became afraid and thought that Govardhana is going to fall off Krishna's finger. Seeing this, Lord Balarama started smiling, because He knew well the potency of His younger brother Krishna. But when Krishna saw Balarama smiling, He thought that Balarama understood His feelings towards Gopis, so He became ashamed. So Lord Krishna is ashamed in front of His elder brother to express His conjugal feelings.


    Your humble servant,

    What if You keep Lord Balaram's Deity along with the image Form of Lord Krishna dear Mataji?

    Gaur Nitay, Radha Krishna and Image of Krishna and Deity of Lord Balarama.

    If You put 3 of Them together it will look like Sita Ram Lakshman. 

    Lord Jagannatha is with His Sister Subhadra when He is with Lord Balarama.

    Maybe some senior Devotee will give better reply.

    Your servant,
