|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 84: The Sages' Teachings at Kurukṣetra|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.84.22
namas tasmai bhagavate
namaḥ — obeisances; tasmai — to Him; bhagavate — the Supreme Lord; kṛṣṇāya — Kṛṣṇa; akuṇṭha — unrestricted; medhase — whose wisdom; sva — His own; yoga-māyayā — by the internal illusory potency; ācchanna — covered; mahimne — whose glories; parama-ātmane — the Supersoul.
Let us offer obeisances unto that Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Kṛṣṇa, the infinitely intelligent Supersoul, who has disguised His greatness through His mystic Yogamāyā.
Apart from any future profit to be obtained from worshiping the Supreme Lord, it is every person's most essential obligation to bow down to Him as an acknowledgement of one's dependence and servitude. Lord Kṛṣṇa recommends,
man-manā bhava mad-bhakto
mad-yājī māḿ namaskuru
mām evaiṣyasi yuktvaivam
"Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, become My devotee, offer obeisances to Me and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me." (Bg. 9.34)
