If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit or water, I will accept it.

9.26 Whoever offers to Me with true devotion a leaf, or a flower, or a fruit or water, which can be easily obtained, I accept it. That true devotion is love of such an exalted kind that the devotee cannot sustain himself without making such offering; the devotee has no extraneous purpose other than serving Me. Such an offering coming from a heart rendered pure with that singleness of purpose of considering the offering as an end in itself — I, the Lord of the universe, whose sport consists in the origin, maintenance and dissolution of the entire world, who has all desires fulfilled, whose will is always accomplished, whose auspicious attributes are unlimited and unsurpassed, who is enjoying the infinite and unsurpassed bliss that is in Myself — I accept and enjoy the aforesaid type of offering, as if I was obtaining a desired object far beyond the range of My hopes. Thus it is declared in the Moksa-dharma: “Whatever acts are consecrated by those whose intellects are concentrated in single-pointed devotion, all these, the Lord Himself accepts on His head.” (Ma. Bha. Sa., 340.64) Sri Krsna proceeds to say: As there is this distinctive excellence, incomprehensible by speech and mind in respect of these great men called the Jnanins, you also, following them, become a Jnanin, i.e., have your self and all your belongings ‘bent down,’ i.e., dedicated, under the weight of Bhakti as prescribed earlier. Be always singing My praises, doing My services, worshipping Me and prostrating before Me; also perform your secular and Vedic duties, periodical and occasional, in this manner.’

Perchance one may assume that since Lord Krishna is in the paramount position as the Supreme Lord and God of all lords and gods then His worship and propitiation will be the most complicated and difficult and so worship of lesser gods is easier. To clear this misconception Lord Krishna states me bhaktya prayacchati meaning if one offers to Him with devotion. As it is only possible that His devotees have devotion for Him it is natural that He only accepts offerings from His devotees. The Varaha Purana states that: Offerings from those who are not His devotees by unrighteous means does not lead to positive results. Exclusively by bhakti or loving devotion for His satisfaction does the Supreme Lord become pleased. The Mahabharata has stated that: One who is in communion with the Supreme Lord through bhakti is revered by all. Solely by bhakti to the Supreme Lord exclusively is one considered in this world to be beyond the sway of the three gunas being the modes of goodness, passion and ignorance and beyond the pull of their own self interest for one has communion with the Supreme Lord externally as the all pervading cognisant and internally as paramatma the all pervasive supreme soul in all sentient beings.
