Can not but offer salutations

I cannot but offer salutations to Thee,
manifest as Thou art in every atom, every form of this earth.

One may praise or slander me, realising that Thou residest in him also
I cannot but offer salutations to Thee.  
O my beloved, manifest as Thou art in every atom or form of this earth
I cannot but offer obeisance to Thee.

One may greet me and offer seat or treat me with humiliation instead,
realising that Thou residest in him also
I cannot but offer salutations to Thee.  
O my Beloved, manifest as Thou art in every atom or form of this earth
I cannot but offer prostrations to Thee.

I may be garlanded affectionately from the bottom of his heart by one
or be beaten by stones and abused by another,
realising that Thou residest in him also
I cannot but offer prostrations to Thee.  
O my Beloved, manifest as Thou art in every atom or form of this earth
I cannot but offer obeisance to Thee.

Whom should I love and whom should I eye with enmity
when it is Thou that smilest and lovest me
dwelling in these manifold forms of the universe?  
Why should I approach one with affection and another with enmity?  
Whatever disguise in which Thou comest before me,
I cannot but offer salutations to Thee.  
O my Beloved, manifest as Thou art in every atom or form of this earth
I cannot but offer obeisance to Thee.

- Shri Yogeshwarji
