Bro, the word Ishar can mean devtay too.

Bhul chuk maaf

In Hindu/Dharmic religions, Ishvar is 1. Then all other Gods of neighbouring religions are seen as Devtay. So for example, in Shaivism, Shiv ji is Ishvar, everyone else is inferior to Him because they are all created by Him. In Shakatism, Devi is the supreme, everyone else is inferior to Her because they are all created by Her. In Guru Granth Sahib, Shri Hari is Ishvar, everyone else is inferior to Him because they are all created by Him.

In Abrahamic religions, there is one main prophet and all other prophets are less worshipped. Christians worship Jesus the most out of all prophets. Islam, Mohammad is the main one, Jesus etc are all secondary.  Now Prophets are like Gurus.

In Hindu/Dharmic religions, your guru will be more worshipped by you. You will not be inclined to worship other gurus. So Chaitanya Mahaprabhu also worshipped Shri Hari but his followers don't worship Guru Nanak Dev ji. We worship our 10 Gurus, we don't really worship other gurus who taught similar things. They are secondary source of knowledge.

This is the answer.

Thanks bro.

I gave you the link to the Smarta Tradition right in the beginning! Lol how could you do that to me bro?

Generally Smartas worship the Supreme in one of five forms: Ganesha, Shiva, Shakti, Vishnu, and Surya.


Panchayatana Puja

The Smarta s evolved a kind of worship which is known as Panchayatana puja. In this Puja, the five principal Brahmanical Hindu Deities (Surya, Shiva, Vishnu, Ganesha and Devi or Shakti) are the objects of veneration.[1] The five symbols of the major Gods are placed on a round open metal dish called Panchayatana, the symbol of the deity preferred by the worshiper being in the center.
