Jayapataka Swami: Merciful mood! We respect the demigods as servants of Kṛṣṇa. I am assuming that you are speaking about the demigod worshiper, who thinks that the demigods are equal to Kṛṣṇa. But Kṛṣṇa is not pleased with that, neither is the demigod. Since the demigods are devotees of the Lord. So, depending on how much you can tell the devotee of the demigods, the Bhagavad-gītā tells us that Kṛṣṇa is ultimately the one who gives benediction through the demigods, because He is in the heart of the demigods. So, the ideal way is to worship Kṛṣṇa and offer the prasāda to the demigods. But whether you are able to convince the worshiper of the demigods, I don’t know.
