Murti Pratishtha


Shri Akshar Purushottam Maharaj

 Shri Ghanshyam Maharaj

Shri Harikrishna Maharaj and Shri Radha Krishna Dev

    Murti Puja is one of the most fundamental elements of Hindu practice, and it is a way that thousands offer their love and devotion to God. The unstable human mind needs a concrete form of some type before even starting to worship God. Murtis are God's gift to humans, given so that we can worship in a manner we can comprehend. Devotees lovingly offer flowers, incense, clothing, and food to the murtis with much reverence and humility.

    Murtis are more than just statues or idols, because when a true saint performs the Murti Pratishtha ceremony, God resides within the murti completely. The Murti is God Himself.

    Murtis are the soul of Mandirs, the point of divine power where prayers are offered and blessings are received. Anyone who stands before these divine murtis cannot help but feel God's infinite power and presence.
