    Every entity has certain energies associated with it, think of having kitchen or store room within the bedroom....does that make sense??? No, so common sense says either don't have it or if you really want to have it follow the rules and regulations properly. – Just_Do_It Nov 22 '18 at 20:40

    If you are going through Bhakti Yoga perspective then you can abandon all other rules (sarva dharmaan parityejjya...). So out of love for mother you can keep. Can't you keep photo of your mother everywhere? Will mother be angry? No, she shall see your love. But if you are going through other perspectives like applying mantras in photo, tantric rituals, or doing for specific purpose then you must follow all rules strictly.. because in this aspect you are seeing first deity then only mother... but in Bhakti yoga perspective you see mother then only deity... – Tejaswee Nov 23 '18 at 1:55
