Srila Prabhupada Letter to Yamuna dasi, August 12th 1969

“Regarding your questions about details for Deity worship, I have already mentioned in a previous letter that I shall teach you these things when I arrive in London. In the meantime there is no necessity for you to increase Deity worshiping. For the time being these new Deities may be put away nicely until I personally install them and instruct you very nicely how to tend for them correctly. For the present you may join...
