SB 10.40.10

yathadri-prabhava nadyah
parjanyapuritah prabho
visanti sarvatah sindhum
tadvat tvam gatayo ’ntatah

Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:

As rivers born from the mountains and filled by the rain flow from all sides into the sea, so do all these paths in the end reach You, O master.

Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:

Lord Krsna Himself speaks on this issue of worship in the Bhagavad-gita (9.23-25):

ye ’py anya-devata-bhakta
yajante sraddhayanvitah
te ’pi mam eva kaunteya
yayanty avidhi-purvakam

aham hi sarva-yajñanam
bhokta ca prabhur eva ca
na tu mam abhijananti
tattvenatas cyavanti te

yanti deva-vrata devan
pitrn yanti pitr-vratah
bhutani yanti bhutejya
yanti mad-yajino ’pi mam

“Those who are devotees of other gods and who worship them with faith actually worship only Me, O son of Kunti, but they do so in a wrong way. I am the only enjoyer and master of all sacrifices. Therefore, those who do not recognize My true transcendental nature fall down. Those who worship the demigods will take birth among the demigods; those who worship the ancestors go to the ancestors; those who worship ghosts and spirits will take birth among such beings; and those who worship Me will live with Me.”

This is very beautifully explained in this Audio to a great length, please download and listen to it.
