It all depends on your mood and level of surrender, if you feel committed to serving the Lord, then the formalities and directions should not limit you. But if you believe that the direction will help you in your service than you should do so as your heart speaks to you, as Krsna is sitting in your heart 'isvarah sarva bhutanam hrdese arjuna itistathi.'
Krsna know everything, so more important than the direction is your mood and intention while you pray and serve to Krsna. The intention is what matters the most, as Krishna will read that, "patram puspam phalam toyam," If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit a water, I will accept it.
