My Dearest and Beloved Devotees,
Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada,

I want to know,

If someone worships Lord Siva wholeheartely and chants 'Om namay Siva!!' all his/ her life as per Scriptures, then can he/ she be go back to God after death (as all we know the eternal soul goes back to Krishna after material death if he serves HIM according to the scriptures)? Can his/ her life be fulfilled if he/ she always serves Lord Shive instead of Lord Krishna?

I am eagerfully waiting for the reply, Thank you very much in advance and forgive me if i hurt any of my dearest devotees.

My best regards ever,

    Yes in one way. If one ennvies Lord Hari but loves to worship Siva, he becomes a demon and may be killed by Lord or devotee and hence attain sayujya mukti. but its risky. why waste time for ekatva or sayujya?

  • well he will have to take next birth for it

  • He will go to Kailasa, the abode of Lord Shiva, not Goloka, the supreme abode of Krishna, from where no one returns back to this material world. Goloka is attained only by the pure devotees of Krishna. The form of all the liberated soul in Goloka is divine and resembles form of Krishna. Whereas, Lord Shiva and Parvatiji resides in Kailasa with Rakshasas, dakinis, pisachas, brahma rakshasas and other fierce forms. Goloka is indestructible i.e it does not get destroyed even during the final destruction. This is not the case with Kailasa. Lord Shiva is a devotee of Krishna. Whereas, Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
