Purpose of life

Ever wondered why we have got this human life out of the 8,400,000 species of life?

Ever wondered what are we supposed to do with this human life?

Ever wondered who you actually are?

Seemingly simple questions but your life can change once you get the meaning of these questions.

From the tenth to the thirtieth shlokas of the Bhagvad Gita Chapter 2, Sri Krishna opens the secret of who we really are.

We are not the body but the spirit soul. The eternal soul which is a part and parcel of the Lord and yet different. This body is just the outer covering which goes through life and death, distress and misery.

What are we supposed to do with this human body?

Once we come to know that we are a part and parcel of HIM, try to know Him, understand Him and try to know what He wants from us.

Looks simple but is not so. We are so used to be like a kite flying high, will it be simple to restrain that freedom and try to realign our lives? No.

SO the next step will be to listen to lectures on the scriptures, to hear, and then to infuse what we have learnt into our lives. Reading too is good but then hearing is much better. The next step is association. To be with like-minded people, is always better. Once you take  up a path, to be with like-minded people, the journey becomes easier. For the start doing these is enough the rest of the way automatically opens up.

I hope you got the answer to the first question 🙂

Yes, why you have got this human life is to know HIM, to glorify HIM and prepare to return to HIM.
