Gyaneshwari 272

Gyaneshwari -Sant Gyaneshwar


The Esoteric Knowledge

21. For I am the enjoyer and the Lord of all sacrifices; but they do not know My true nature and so fall. Moreover, know that none but Me, is the enjoyer of all these sacrificial offerings made to the deities. I am the origin and the end of all sacrifices; but not knowing this, these benighted persons worship deities. The holy water of the Ganga offered to the Gods and forefathers has to be offered in the Ganga alone. So they offer to Me whatever is mine, but in a different way. They therefore, do not, O Partha, attain to Me at all, and go to the deities in whom they have placed their faith.
