Jayapataka Swami: The devas and devis can be worshipped as vaisnavas and vaisnavis. After praying to Krsna, then the prasad can be offered to the vaisnavas and vaisnavis. Oh English! Ha!

So, the point is that we don’t worship demigods as if they are the supreme. We worship them as angels, or devotees, vaisnava nam yata Sambu. Lord Siva is the greatest of all vaisnavas. And as such you can offer the Visnu prasadam to the different devas and devis. And that is allowed.
