4. Life is a continuous sacrifice, in which one becomes an offering (bhakta) in the service of God.
For a devout Hindu life is a sacrifice, in which he is the sacrificer as well as the sacrificed, and God is the final recipient of the sacrifice. Therefore, he lives with detachment, offering his every breath, thought and action in the service of God and dedicating himself to His cause. In the sacrifice of life, he offers his mind and body for the order and regularity of the world, taking no credit for himself and holding on to nothing.
