Please accept my humblest obeisances unto your feet.
All glories to Gurudeva and Srila Prabhupada.
I come to all of you with a question asked in a humble mood.
I have been in Krishna Consciousness for the past 1 year prior to which I have owned and worshipped idols and deity forms of many other devis and devatas (Demi Gods).
After reading Srila Prabhupadas writings, I have full faith that surrendering completely to Krishna alone by following Srila Prabhupada and Gurudevas instructions and teachings, we are able to become free of sin and karma and attain our ultimate goal.
I have since removed all the idols and deity forms and yantras of other devis and devatas from my altar. I only have Laddu Gopal, Jagannatha Baladeva and Subhadra and Radha Krsna deities now.
I don't live in India and therefore it is impossible to respectfully place the idols and deity forms of other devis and devatas in Holy Waters or temples where it is allowed. At the moment, I have them sitting in a box in a clean and safe cupboard.
I am feeling very bad that I may have offended them by doing so and asking your for advice as to what I can do to make sure they are not being disrespected?
Please shower your mercy on this insignificant servant of yours.
