Supreme Goal - an essential subject
There is a Mission that regularly propounds that worship of any demigod will lead one to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, or the supreme goal. But worship of demigods are thoroughly discouraged because even the greatest demigods like Brahmā and Śiva represent only part of the opulence of the Supreme Lord but that is not the supreme goal, because the demigod also dies. Lord Krishna is the origin of everyone born, and no one is greater than Him so our supreme goal is to attain the lotus feet of Lord. He is asamaurdhva, which means that no one is superior to Him and that no one is equal to Him. The supreme goal of life is to achieve the transcendental blessings of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and thus become engaged in the loving service of the Lord. One should follow in the footsteps of Śukadeva Gosvāmī and all the other Vaiṣṇavas in the disciplic succession and should pay respectful obeisances unto Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead who is the supreme goal.
