The Story of

the Prodigal Son

Krishna is a God who doesn’t just welcome us back, but also strives multifariously to get us back. One such extraordinary effort of his is the system of demigod worship

    • Is demigod worship good or bad?
    • For atheists and materialists, it is recommended
    • For serious spiritual seekers, it is discouraged
