namas tasmai bhagavate
 mahimne paramatmane

Let us offer obeisances unto that Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krsna, the infinitely intelligent Supersoul, who has disguised His greatness through His mystic Yoga-maya.

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 Krsna recommends,

man-mana bhava mad-bhakto
 mad-yaji mam namaskuru
mam evaisyasi yuktvaivam
 atmanam mat-parayanah

“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)
