Sarva deva namaskaram, Keshavam pratigachati."
which means:" Just like as the rain water falls on various parts of the earth, but, of it's own accord, in its own way, it always makes its way to the ocean. Similarly, worship offered to any God / Goddess will eventually end up at the feet of Shree Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead."
