When Abhay was about six years old, he asked his father for a Deity of his own to worship. Gour Mohan De purchased a pair of little Radha Krishna Deities for Abhay. From then on, whatever Abhay ate he would first offer to Radha and Krishna, and imitating his father and the priests of Radha Govinda, he would offer his Deities ghee lamp and put Them to rest at night.

Srila Prabhupada : By the grace of the Lord, there are still families that foster transcendentalists generation after generation. It is certainly very fortunate to take birth in such families. Fortunately, both our spiritual master, Om Vishnupada Sri Srimad Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Maharaja, and our humble self, had the opportunity to take birth in such families, by the grace of the Lord, and both of us were trained in the devotional service of the Lord from the very beginning of our lives.
