Hare Krishna dear friends.
I had gotten some Tulsi neck beads and started wearing them before I was aware of the proper procedure for wearing them. I was so excited to become a devotee of Krishna. Therefore, I did not offer them to Krishna before wearing, which I read is an offense. That being said, I have not taken them off either, as I heard taking them off without cause is also a big offense.
A devotee in my temple recently came back from Vrindavan, and gave all of us some tulsi neck beads from her trip.
What I would like to know, is now can I correct this offense? Should I remove these beads which I am already wearing, offer them to Krishna, and wear them again? Or would it be favorable to offer the other beads given to me as a gift from Sri Vrindavan Dham, remove the current neck beads, and wear these?
Friends, I am lost. Please help me.
