The following question was posted to our “Contact” page by Valery Kishlaly:
Is it true that devotees of Krishna live on Shivaloka?
Dear Valery Kishlaly (Vaikuntha Nama dasa),
No, that is not true!
Please open Bhagavad-gita and read Chapter 9, verse 25.*
Then read—Bg 8.8, Bg. 9.34 and Bg 18.65.
* Bg 9.25
yānti deva-vratā devān
pitṝn yānti pitṛ-vratāḥ
bhūtāni yānti bhūtejyā
yānti mad-yājino ’pi mām
“Those who worship the demigods will take birth among the demigods; those who worship the ancestors go to the ancestors; those who worship ghosts and spirits will take birth among such beings; and those who worship Me will live with Me.”
