If you have no love and affection and you are worshiping Kṛṣṇa with sixteen different types of
paraphernalia, Kṛṣṇa will not accept your worship. And if you have no paraphernalia to offer besides one drop of water or a leaf of Tulasī, but you offer it with great love and affection, Kṛṣṇa will be satisfied. Even if you do not offer any water or Tulasī, but you say, “O Kṛṣṇa, I am Yours and You are mine,” this will suffice. We should try to follow this principle.
