Tirukkural 338: Instability oh Human Life

The love of the soul to the body is like (the love of) a bird to its egg which it flies away from and leaves empty.

All Hindus have guardian devas who live on the astral plane and guide, guard and protect their lives. The great Mahadevas in the temple that the devotees frequent send their deva ambassadors into the homes to live with the devotees.
