I know many Hindus after they become a devotee remain attached to their demi god worship or chanting their names of a particular demigod or doing certain pujas or festivals for demi gods. But Srila Prabhupada said this is not necessary. Vaisnavas are not in need to worship demigods as they are for those who want to remian in this material world and get a better position in the heavenly planets ect. So why do they continue their attachment, when Lord Krishna says to give up all of these material attachments. He says to fully surrender unto Him and that he will protect you. He can remove all lobsticles, so there is no need to worship Ganesh. If one wants to remove all obsticles they should worship the Supreme Lord and if you like in the Form of Lord Narasimhadeva. Dont they know Lord Narasimhadeva is unlimited times more powerful and able to protect and remove all obsticles than any demi god?
Why continue to chant their names when we have Krishnas names?
And if any devotee says anything in this regard, they think we are offenders of the demigods.
In fact I have all respect for the demigods, but I dont feel a need to worship them after reading Srla Prabhupadas Srimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad GIta As it is.
What can Ganesh, Lord Shiva, Dhurgha, Indra, Brhama etc. give that Krishna can not Give?
The fact is Krishna can give anything.
I understand if we want Krishnas full mercy, then we have to prove to Him we fully have faith in Him as our all worshipful lord.
But I feel people have been brainwashed in their traditions and religions and they fear to give it up.
Just think of the Govardhana Puja passtime. Krishna is telling all the Cowherd men and women to stop this Indra Yjna (sacrafice) there is no need to do so. This passtime is proof that there is no need to do demigod worship when you have Krishna. Krishna says just worship Govardhan Hill which is an expansion of Him, just worship the cows which He loves so dearly. ( of course we are not worshiping the cows as god, (Which is another misconseption) but we worship them as dear to God Krishna.
sorr so long.
Kindly give your reasons.
Jayas Sri Krishna!
