(Kadamba Kanana Swami, October 2011, Melbourne, Australia, Lecture)
Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva can give so many benedictions but they cannot give what Lord Vishnu can give, which is liberation from birth and death! But Lord Vishnu cannot give what Lord Krsna can give and that is Krsna-prema. Therefore, we understand that demigods are to be respected but they cannot compare to Vishnu. We worship Lord Vishnu but our deity is Lord Krsna because Krsna and ONLY KRSNA can give us prema – the love of God that exists in Goloka!
