Aim of Life - an essential subject

From Vanipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

“Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I go when I die?” These are philosophical questions everyone of us should ask. The human form of life is unique because we have the ability to pose these questions and realize the aim of life. If we don’t take advantage of this opportunity, we are no better than animals. Unable to raise these questions, animals simply deal with how to find food, how to sleep, how to mate, and how to defend. These four activities which encompass material life do not bring ultimate satisfaction to humans because we are meant to realize our spiritual nature. To fulfill our aim of life, we need to connect to the Absolute Truth - or Krishna, the Supreme Being, and use the time we have to develop our dormant relationship of love with Him.
