    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    Keepign 3 deities at home per se is not a problem. You have to commit a minimum standard of worship, take permission from your guru maharaj, ideally install Them properly and then only start the worship. Deity worhip has more rules than worshipping photos. It is ideal that one starts with photo worship and then gradually graduate to deity worship once one is comfortable and able to do all the aratis and offerings.

    Please remember that deities will need abhishek frequently. THat takes time, money and effort. So many deities will require quite an investment.

    I have heard that Radha Krishna deities and Jagannath deities are not to be kept on same altar without a partition. So you may need to take care of that. Ideally ask a temple pujari, showing him your altar and taking his advise. If that is not possible, please install photos, alonwith Nrishimhadev photo and Sad goswami and Guru parampara photos. Make altar the way advised by ISKCON and start with photos.


    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD
