Dear friends, I have two questions. Is worship of only Visnu mandatory or could someone worship Siva and attain the same level of bhakti? I ask because I was told Vaishnavites only allow worship of Visnu. I personally like Siva for unknown reasons and just assume Siva = God = Visnu but maybe that's just too simplistic to be true? Second question: please recommend best English translations of and commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita. thank you.
