🌼 From Shri Linga Mahapurana :

enter image description here

अन्यभक्तसहस्रेभ्यो विष्णुभक्तो विशिष्यते ॥ विष्णुभक्तसहखेभ्यो रुद्रभक्तो विशिष्यते। रुद्रभक्कात्परतरो नास्ति लोके न संशयः ॥

~ Linga Purana, 2.4.19b-20

A devotee of Viṣṇu greater than thousands of other devotees. A devotee of Rudra is far better than thousands of devotees of Viṣṇu. There is certainly no one greater than the devotee of Rudra in this world .

सूर्यवह्नीन्दुभक्तानामुत्तमो वैष्णवः परः ॥ वैष्णवानां सहस्रेभ्यः शिवभक्तो विशिष्यते ।
