STUDENT TESTIMONIAL
"The Home Deity Worship Seminars were probably the most immersive experience I've had, regarding the entire process of taking care of one’s Home Deities. From thinking of where to place one’s altar, to the detailed How-To demonstrations, the Seminars gave me a wonderful insight into how to bring the Lord’s Form home and take care of the Lord in one’s home. The course leader, Murli Manohara dasa, really brought his experience as the Soho Temple’s Head Pujari to the table, teaching us tips and tricks to help facilitate our personal Home worship. All in all, I can say that I had a great experience meeting people and learning so much about the culture and practice of Home Deity Worship and I strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in either establishing an altar at home, or even anyone looking for a little more inspiration to be able to serve their own Deities at home more!" - Hanish
