You are a mere guest in the universe of God, and you can only enjoy your life in his name. You live in God, supported by God, nourished by God and protected by God. Hence, a devout Hindu forsakes all worldly possessions and lives in constant reverence to God as the provider and the sustainer. He lives with restraint, expressing his gratitude as a way of life for all that he enjoys or derives from God.
