Is Shiva or Krisha the supreme Lord of Hinduism?   Where in the holy texts of Hinduism, such as Vedas or Gita, does it imply that one is to be woshipped as the supreme god above the other?   Why do people choose to worship one or the other gods or gods as opposed to other forms of Hinduism?

This question might better be asked elsewhere.


Krishna is Avatar. Shiva is an aspect of the Brahman. The Creator, and the Sustainer, are attributes/names of God.


The preceding is a personal understanding.


For a detailed scholarly treatment, would suggest going to where you asked about the concept of God in Buddhism.

Also there are very few posts in most of the fora of Beliefnet. For example, the last thread here, also probably by a Christian soul, has gone unanswered for nine months.
