The Deities are now beautifully dressed and an arati is performed for them. The devotees also take charanamrita, the sweetened nectar from the lotus feet of the Deities. It is prasadam, substance sanctified by the mercy of Sri Krsna. After greeting the Deities is Guru puja- worship of the spiritual master. The spiritual master of the Hare Krsna movement is His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
