Those who worship me with devotion are in me and I am also in them – Krishna in Gita

Whoever offers to Me with devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit, water, that I accept – offered by the pure-minded with devotion. Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer in sacrifice, whatever you give, whatever you practice in austerity, O Kaunteya, do it as an offering to Me. Thus shall you be free from bonds of actions which yield good and evil results; with the mind steadfast in the Yoga of renunciation. The same am I to all beings; to Me there is none hateful nor dear; but those who worship Me with devotion are in Me, and I am also in them. Bhagavad Gita IX – 26 - 29
