You should consider the acarya, meaning the Guru, to be Me Myself, and never disrespect him. Do not find faults in him, taking him to be an ordinary human being, for Sri Guru is the aggregate of all the gods. Krishna bestows His mercy upon the devotees in the form of the Guru. This grace consists of the treasure of worshipping Sri Krishna, and the fruit of this bhajana is the treasure of prema which is bestowed upon the surrendered disciple.

It has never been published. I decided to put this on line since there was a discussion on Facebook on the subject and I thought I would revisit what I wrote here nearly twenty years ago. This is from chapter ten on temple renovations. Please note that I have removed the images that I had found of some of the sculptures.
I have been blocked from posting links to this blog on Facebook for some infringement of its "community standards". The only thing I can think of on this blog that might have offended some prudish person in cyberspace is this.
