Actually, there is no need of worshiping any demigod beside the Supreme. But in the lower stage... Just like the other day we have discussed. Because we cannot immediately give up our concept of material existence and material happiness and material distress - we take into consideration very seriously, without any spiritual life, or without any idea of spiritual existence- therefore sometimes recommended in the Vedic literature that "For this purpose you can worship this demigod." Just like the other day I gave you the example that those who are diseased, they are recommended to worship the sun-god.
