According to the Sacred Text of the Veda, Brahma creates this wondrous universe with unimaginable diversity to bring us to life in, and the breath of Brahma sustains us every moment of our lives. The text says that the breath is a certainty for relying upon when active during the day or sleeping at night, and for as long as one has the strength to return the breath one will come.

The God of love blows the breath into all creatures great and small. Some creatures are peaceful and some are dangerous but all share the homogenous air. In this place frequented by all, all have the life breath to enjoy doing whatever, albeit within the framework of mortals having mortality. Living one’s life according to the Veda is living peacefully, and being kind and helpful to others ups one’s chances of longevity. For being kind and helpful to others the others are not just your friends or even all humans, it includes all creatures great and small. The Veda says do not take away the happiness of the sunshine and the heavenly breath of any creature, it says to go towards others with the spirit of kindness.

Grandfather supports all the grandchildren, and it is a promise, the Holy Spirit will be will you every moment of life. The following verse is from Hymn 68 of the First Mandala of the Rgveda.

No one can break this Holy Ordinance; Brahma gives the breath of life to people who strike their peers, kings who boast, and to Heroes to eliminate the power of attachment.
