2458) Whether I know one worshiping demigod misses the advantage of devotional service to Krsna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
———– Whereas if you worship other demigods, you may get some temporary benefit, but at the end, the benefit will be finished, you’ll be finished, and the demigod who has given you the benediction, he will be also finished. Antavat tu phalam tesam tad bhavaty alpa-medhasam [Bg. 7.23]. Therefore the conclusion is, even if we have got material desires… Generally, a devotee has no material desires, a pure devotee. Anyabhilasita-sunyam [Brs. 1.1.11]. But even one has got some material desires to be fulfilled, if he worships Krsna, that desires will be fulfilled. At the same time, he’ll get shelter under the lotus feet of the Lord. This is the advantage. ————————
