What is the purpose of life?
Our life is to learn , to improve ourselves, we are born in ignorance
we don't know anything except the present before us. We have to do
good which will have a good effect on the people. From our parents we
learn the basics of life and through our guru we learn to meet the
challenges of life. We have to evolve ourselves, purify our soul.
What is our swadharma, how do we identify our karma bhoomi?
We continuosly are in the process of purifying and evolving into
higher beings through many births. Our earlier life, likings and
tastes are passed on into the current birth and that is projected
through our talents. We have to nurture them and build on them . But
if the sanskar gives us wrong feelings , we must correct it and move
towards higher evolution. Environment, our parents , our birth , do
play a role in our life's journey . "at all times we have to realize
that purusharth is our duty".purusharth has to performed continuosly
at all times.
What is success in life?
Nothing happens without hard work. Purusharth is the only way to
success and development. "Luck" that is punya of last life does help
you sometimes but not always. Apart from your environment, your
consent on the path of life is a major contributor. Your aim,
direction and the consent you give to that decision moves or acts as
a catalyst towards success.
What is failure in life?
There are no failures in life; setbacks are path to higher evolution.
That should never put you down. You may lose sometimes but that
should not deter you from your path. Spider's web is broken many
times but it doesn't stop it from reconstructing it time and again.
Life is for continuous improvement and setbacks calls for immediate
improvement. Defeat is your ladder to success.
Examples of inspiration for the youth?
Bhagwan Bahubali is a striking example for the youth of today. He
renounced everything that he got and attained the supreme. His
message of AHIMSA, TYAG, MAITRIYA and DHYAN is eternal. With AHIMSA
you get joy, through TYAG we get SHAANTI, through MAIETRIYA we get
all round development and through DHYAN we get SIDDHI. Chakravarti
Bahubali the victor after defeating his elder brother Bharat
renounced all material pleasures of the world and attained the
supreme, became Bhagwan Bahubali. There can be no greater example of
motivation for the youth.
