You are free to worship the demigods, but there’s a qualification – do it the
Gopis’ way:
katyayani mahamaye maha-yoginy adhisvari
nanda-gopa-sutam devi patim me kuru te namah
“O Katyayani (Durga), O Maha-maya (Illusory potency), O mystic yogini, O queen (of this world), O goddess, please make Nanda-gopa’s son, (Krsna) my husband. I offer my respectful obeisances to you.”
— Lalita Madhava Scene 1 Text 45
