Purpose of life
purpose driven life


Is there a purpose of life? What does it mean when men of wisdom say there is always a purpose in life? If there is life's purpose then why do most people while away their life without ever finding a purpose in life? What use living a purpose driven life without a defined purpose?

The answer to all the above queries on finding a purpose in life is the most crucial part of life for a human being. The purpose driven life is meant to be lived by living forms which have not yet evolved to the level of human beings. Why?

Simply because they are devoid of discriminatory powers to choose a goal in life! The insects, the plants and animals always live a purpose driven life. They simply have no goal in life. They are as they are. They simply have their existence and have to abide by the rules of evolution as defined by Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution.


Only when the living form reaches the level of a human being does one realize that human life is the highest manifest stage in the cosmic system. The moment a human being realizes that life has a purpose... one seeks the purpose of his life. Without a goal in life, Life seems to be incomplete!

As the child grows... one comes to learn that every human being has the potential of becoming a man god like Mahavira, Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed. Is that the crux of life! Is gaining salvation the end purpose of life!

If that be so... are we required to have a purpose in life linked to salvation as the present goal of life or is it that we can postpone traveling the spiritual path for the next manifestation.


The goal and the purpose of life for every human being are gaining enlightenment and finally salvation in the end. That may or may not be the purpose of life in the present manifestation. The purpose of life in the present phase can be best known by hearing the sweet small voice of our soul atman within our heart.

The purpose of life in every manifestation is driven by our soul atman within. It is our soul atman that has taken the body and not vice versa. The purpose of life is indirectly dictated by our soul atman within. If our deeds of the present life are not in consonance with the directives of our soul atman within... then heartburning, tensions and stresses become part of daily life.

Whatever act provides us complete relief... doing which we find extreme pleasure... something that we enjoy doing must form our goal of life. It is this goal of life pursuing which the purpose of our present life would be fulfilled.


It is surprising that almost above 95% people living on Mother Earth pass their life without ever having a purpose in life. It is almost like taking the routine path. If we are to ever curtail our cosmic journey... we need to find the purpose of our present manifestation. And this goal of life shall be prompted to us by our soul atman within.

By being truthful in life we can always hear the sweet small inner voice coming from our heart. This voice of our soul atman within always guides us on the right path. Knowing the exact purpose of this life... half the life's journey is complete.

FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) had a fixed purpose in life and that made him one of the most successful presidents USA ever had in spite of his severe handicaps. (FDR lost both of his legs).


Madame Curie spent her entire life searching for radium in pitchblende. She was successful in the end but her success was written all over her body. Her body had dismally decayed by the powerful rays of radioactivity which led to her death. She knew what the outcome would be. Her purpose of life was helping the mankind. She had a very noble purpose in life. She succeeded finally!

Bill Gates... the architect of the Microsoft Corporation and the developer of famous Windows program also had a fixed purpose in life. His teachers found him academically weak! Fearing he would bring a bad name to the institution... they turned him out of the so called place of wisdom!

Destiny willed otherwise! Bill Gates pursued a goal of life dear to his heart. He fiddled with typewriters and gadgets which ultimately led him to develop computer skills which are unparalleled in the history of mankind. His famous Windows program now runs almost every computer in the world.


Every success in life demands a neatly defined purpose of life. And this purpose of life must be fixed in the earlier stages of life.

In my own personal case I distinctly remember when I was 11 years of age I had a deep urge to find and reach God in the present life. By 13 years of age my determination had been fixed. I had decided come whatever may I shall find God within the present life.

If that leads to my leaving the house... leaving my family forever... detaching all bonds of affiliations with near and dear ones... going to the far away jungles (confines of the forests) I shall do that! Whatever the obstacle... I shall overcome it by all means! And finally after meditating on God for 25 years... at the age of 37 I finally came face-to-face with God Almighty.


I had reached the end goal of cosmic life. I had reached the Mount Everest of my spiritual pursuit. I had in fact transcended all the boundaries of earthly domain. I had become a living Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. I had ultimately realized God within this life. I had reached the 8.4 millionth manifestation.

This was to be my last life... I can only attain salvation as the end of this manifested life! Looking back I find that the purpose in life I had fixed early in life was the starting point. Most people keep on postponing fixing the purpose of their life. And when comes the time to depart... they only drop a tear or two in anguish. For none knows what our next manifestation would be!

Life as a human being must be lived to the hilt. That decision is to be made by us alone. Our parents, teachers and well wishers can only act as guides in the journey of life. The purpose of our life is to be fixed by us alone. We just cannot leave things to chance. The time for that may never come.

Everything in the cosmos is justly ordered. If Stephen Hawking in his book, "a brief history of time" has expressed that the system of God is disordered at some stage... he is mysteriously wrong. This poor scientist fails to recognize that spirituality starts from the point where science ends. To measure spirituality from the yardstick of science has never been possible and shall never be.

Realizing the absolute truth that everything in the cosmos is justly ordered... why not bring order to our life. We definitely must fix a goal in life and never let ourselves fall into the rut of purpose driven life.

May god bless us!
