demigod worship

Dear devotees:

Born in an Udipi brahmin family, my favorite form of
god to worship is Udipi Sri Krishna. I am partial to
this form. Please advise me if I am wrong in doing
that because I am not worshipping the Lord as Narayana
but Sri Krishna. After all, I thought Sri Krishna is
an incarnation of  Lord Vishnu/Sriman Narayana.  I am
confused by all the out pourings of learned men of the
group on worship of demi gods. Please enlighten me.
During my course of study at the University I came
under the influence of many who were partial to the
Advaita doctrine and I tended to adopt their view that
that there is only one paramatman who is formless and
though he is called by many names, there is only One
Supreme Spirit. No offense to any of the devotees of
the list but I humbly seek answers.
