What do the Vedas and Bhagavad Gita ask to do when someone wants to devote himself completely to God and can give away material success and happiness for it? If so, how can the person earn a living for 2 times food and other basic needs?
For more details, consider a hypothetical Indian boy:
The boy graduated with B.E. Computer this year and was a topper in all years of graduation. He's of age 22 and previously did not believe in god. He did Computer Engineering due to his attraction to computers. He enjoyed doing programming. He got a selected in a renowned company through campus interview and had good salary.
But he left the company in some months due to few reasons. In the past year, he was occupied by thoughts like why does everything exists, what is the purpose of everything, how did first living cell form, why do all species want to survive, how could complex architectures like Ajanta-Ellora, Pyramids and other be built if the ancient people were less advanced, and many such questions, and he took these questions seriously.
After trying to search a lot of places, he was influenced by Vedas. He started believing in things other than just physical, specifically spiritual. He then read Bhagavad Gita and became a complete believer in God and message of Gita.
He realized that all the things he knew about computers was mere information, and not knowledge. True knowledge lies in Vedas, bhagavad gita, bhagavad purana, etc. He started to live a much simpler life, started giving up things giving bodily pleasures. He did not like doing programming as he used to do before. He now wishes to read and understand the Upanishads, the 4 Vedas, etc. He now seeks happiness is learning more from these.
But he worries that how will he earn money to have food for 2 times a day and other little things. He does not want to do a IT job again and want to give up material way of living.
What should he do?
