The idea of bowing down is also we are surrendering our mind. When Lord Brahma bowed down he bathed the lotus feet of Krishna with the tears of love. In the bowing down the different parts of the body are mentioned and the last part is our mind. We are also offering our mind to the lotus feet of the Lord.
