    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    It is very commendable that you want to install Gaur Nitai deities on your altar. However, since the family is eating non veg, maybe you start by installing photos instead of deities. Offer whatever you eat (I hope veg food without inion garlic) and ensure everyone eats a little of it everyday. Pray to Gaur Nitai that you want to bring Them home, to make the home environment conducive. Then you wait for the miracle to happen. Just ensure your family eats the prasadam offered everyday, even if it is little,.

    Once you have installed photos, please start the worship as if They were deities - mangalarati and Sandhya arati must. Gradually your family will come around.

    Your servant,
    Radha Rasamayi DD
