Hare Krsna dear Gurudeva all glories to Srila Prabhupada.

We took care of an elderly couple, they were from Argentina and had served in the temple of Krsna Balarama for 25 years.

Advaita Prabhu left the body a month ago and yesterday, his wife Subhadra Mataji. We already borned [burned] her body today.

She asked after her death to take care of their Deities, Lord Nrsimhadev and Hanuman. And Saranga Thakura gave to us for her desire. Can we take care of them?

HpS - Seems fine to me. Love, cleanliness, punctuality and ritual.

Could you please give your recommendations about this? About the Giriraj issue, dear Guru Maharaj, we still don't understand clear how to take care of Giriraj. Don't bathe Him, don't offer bhoga and puja, don't dress Him? just put him on the altar? For one year? And what about waking Him up and putting Him to bed, could you please give some recommendations about this.

HpS - If you are in Vrndavana He is being cared for by Mother Yasoda. Wipe Him with a clean, damp cloth each day and put in in a nice place on the altar where He can see what is happening, until you have been 16/4-with enthusiasm (= FMP, Sankirtan, FEP) for one year then you can worship Him as long as you keep that Brahmincal standard.

Thank you very much for your time and care.

Your servants

Vrajendra Kumara Das and Bhaktin Aleksandra.

HpS - Thank you for giving your life for Guru and Gauranga.
