Demigods: Definition of a Demigod

                                                                  Q. Can Vishnu be classified as Demigod? (When I am listing all the demigods to these kids)

                                                                  No, Vishnu is not one among the demigods, but is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The demigods are empowered administrators of material affairs, and are like different assistants or limbs of the Personality of Godhead, something like the different cabinet ministers are to the Chief Executive of State.

                                                                  Q. What are demigods? Why can't we pray to them? I am a bit confused on this issue. Is Lord Ganesha a demigod? If he is, then why do people look up to him as the clearer of obstacles? Why is it said that one has to pray to him first, before approaching other gods. Please clarify my doubts!!
