Q.

If everything belongs to god, are his creations, then why we humans offer flowers, milk, ghee, oil, agarbathi, fruits, garlands to god while worshiping. can we give such items to owner of the company to please him, of which we are employees? Is it acceptable? Will not he laugh at us?

Aap kisi kee party mei gift lekar jaate hain, toh wah khush hota hai; wah us wastu ko swayam khareed sakta hai;
Yah ek prakar kaa prateek hai aapki shraddha kaa.
Aap ek patta, ya durba bhi bhagwan ko chadhate hain, to wah useeki prakriti se prapt vastu hai, jise aap bina kuchh kharch kiye prapt kar sakte hain.
Aap kisi mareej ko dekhne jaate hain, phool lekar, phool uskay kis kaam ke ..... but this is gesture of your good will.
