The Lord appearing in the form of fire and smoke during yajnas:

mahäprabhura datta mälä mananera käle
prasäda-kaòära saha bändhi lena gale
mahäprabhura—by Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu; datta—given; mälä—tulasé garland; mananera—of remembering; käle—at the time; prasäda-kaòära—the remnants of Lord Jagannätha; saha—with; bändhi—binding together; lena—takes; gale—on his neck.

When Raghunätha Bhaööa Gosvämé was absorbed in remembrance of Lord Kåñëa, he would take the tulasé garland and the prasädam of Lord Jagannätha given to him by Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu, bind them together and wear them on his neck. (Chaitanya Charitamrita Antya-lila 13:134.)

mahäprabhura kåpäya kåñëa-prema anargala
ei ta’ kahiluì täte caitanya-kåpä-phala

mahäprabhura kåpäya—by the mercy of Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu; kåñëa-prema anargala—incessantly overwhelmed with ecstatic love of Kåñëa; ei ta’—thus; kahiluì—I have described; täte—thereby; caitanya-kåpä-phala—the result of Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu’s mercy.

Thus I have described the powerful mercy of Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu, by which Raghunätha Bhaööa Gosvämé remained constantly overwhelmed with ecstatic love for Kåñëa. (Chaitanya Charitamrita Antya-lila 13:135.)

Tadéya—everything belonging to the Lord, or His associates.

(4) päda-sevanam. According to one’s taste and strength, hearing, chanting and remembrance may be followed by päda-sevanam. One obtains the perfection of remembering when one constantly thinks of the lotus feet of the Lord. Being intensely attached to thinking of the Lord’s lotus feet is called päda-sevanam. When one is particularly adherent to the process of päda-sevanam, this process gradually includes other processes, such as seeing the form of the Lord, touching the form of the Lord, circumambulating the form or temple of the Lord, visiting such places as Jagannätha Puré, Dvärakä and Mathurä to see the Lord’s form, and bathing in the Ganges or Yamunä. Bathing in the Ganges and serving a pure Vaiñëava are also known as tadéya-upäsanam. This is also päda-sevanam. The word tadéya means “in relationship with the Lord.” Service to the Vaiñëava, Tulasé, Ganges and Yamunä are included in päda-sevanam. All these processes of päda-sevanam help one advance in spiritual life very quickly. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srimad Bhagavatam 7:5:23-24 purport.)

Tadéya means “in relation to Him.” The devotees are intimately related to the Lord because they are under the shelter of His internal energy. Thus they always accompany Him and serve Him as His carrier Garuòa, His couch Ananta Çeña, His cows, His gopas and gopés, and so on. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Sri Narad Bhakti Sutra 4:73. purport.)

So in this regard some devotees have different items that are inrelation to different Deities; from Ahobalam, the place of Lord Narasimha one make take the red stones from the river that flows through this area where Lord Narasimha washed is hands after killing the wasp-like demon Hiranyakashipu; Some devotees hold various items of other places such as Ekachakra where Lord Nityananda appeared, or Yogapith, where Mahaprabhu appeared, or items of Mahaprasadam like the sandalwood paste from Madhavendra Puri Goswami's chapals at Remuna, or Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami's tooth, or hair etc. It is a broad topic.

Wearing and Not wearing Tadiya:
Akñayänanda: [break] ...thread from the Deity, the old sacred thread, and they tie it on their wrist. They tie it here.
Prabhupäda: Who?
Akñayänanda: Some of the devotees have started to do that now.
Prabhupäda: Why?
Akñayänanda: I don’t know. It’s just like wearing beads. The sacred thread from the Deity, after replacing, they take the old one and they wear it here.
Prabhupäda: Who has told them?
Akñayänanda: I don’t know.
Prabhupäda: Then why...
Akñayänanda: Well, I told one boy to stop it, and because I couldn’t quote any authority, he keeps wearing...
Prabhupäda: No, no, there is no author.... Where is his authority?
Akñayänanda: Yes.
Prabhupäda: This nonsense should be stopped.
Akñayänanda: Yes, I thought it was wrong. That’s why I mentioned it. I wanted to make sure.
Prabhupäda: Stop this.
Akñayänanda: Okay. Sure.
Hari-çauri: I think their idea is that because it’s prasädam, it’s from the Deity, that they’re able to wear it.
Prabhupäda: That is another concoction. The sacred thread is not used like that, in the hand.
Akñayänanda: I thought it was wrong. It seems like some kind of fashion or something, concocted fashion.
Hari-çauri: [break] ...small black beads that the devotees are wearing from Rädhä-kuëòa. They have a string of beads made of clay from Rädhä-kuëòa. Are they...?
Prabhupäda: Rädhä-kuëòa clay is not bad.
Hari-çauri: So it’s all right to wear them?
Prabhupäda: Not very constantly.
Puñöa Kåñëa: Sometimes I think, Çréla Prabhupäda, that you’re worried that one thing will lead to the next. Actually all we have to do is follow your example.
Akñayänanda: Yes, we don’t have to add anything. What can we add?
Puñöa Kåñëa: What is the use of it?
Akñayänanda: What can we add?
Prabhupäda: There is a proverb in Bengali that the crows, they eat stool. But when the crow is very young, he eats more stool. [break] ...tendency always, how to become hippie, as soon as there is little opportunity.
Akñayänanda: Yes, it’s something we have to guard against very carefully.
Prabhupäda: Don’t allow them. Don’t allow all these.
Akñayänanda: Even in India people say like that, “Oh, you are hippies?”
Prabhupäda: As soon as you become hippie, immediately your all prestige will go.
Akñayänanda: Finished, yes.
Prabhupäda: Very carefully.
Hari-çauri: The thing is, a lot of the devotees, they’re not very much conscious that they’re being watched by the, very carefully by the public.
Prabhupäda: Bird of paradise? No.
(Srila A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 7th April 1976. Morning Walk in Vrindavan.)

Accepting Flower Garlands

The next instruction is that one should put on flower garlands which are offered to the Deity. In this connection, in the Eleventh Canto, Sixth Chapter, verse 46, of Çrémad-Bhägavatam, Uddhava says to Kåñëa, “My dear Kåñëa, I have taken things which You have used and enjoyed, such as garlands of flowers, saintly articles, garments and ornaments, and I eat only the remnants of Your foodstuff, because I am Your menial servant. So, therefore, I am sure that I shall not be attacked by the spell of material energy.” The purport of this verse is that for any person who simply follows these rules and regulations of decorating the body with the marks of tilaka of gopé-candana or sandalwood pulp, and who puts on the garlands which were offered to Kåñëa, there is no question of being conquered by the spell of material energy. At the time of death, there is no question of such a person’s being called by the constables of Yamaräja. Even if one does not accept all the Vaiñëava principles, but still takes the remnants of foodstuff offered to Kåñëa, or kåñëa-prasäda, he will gradually become qualified to rise to the platform of a Vaiñëava.
Similarly, in the Skanda Puräëa Lord Brahmä tells Närada, “My dear Närada, anyone who puts on his neck the flower garland which was formerly used by Kåñëa becomes relieved from all disease and reactions to sinful activities, and gradually he is liberated from the contamination of matter.”
(Nectar of Devotion. Chapter 9.)

Tadiya of the Devas and Devis:

Then according to Salagram kosh there's a whole other realm of shilas, and conches too that are considered of secondary worship to that of Salagrams due to their association with the devas - demigods and godesses. More on the other kinds of Shilas (Narmada, Lingas etc) coming soon.
