Help others - The Purpose of Life

The purpose of human life is to use the mind, body and speech for the helping others. Research indicates that those who consistently help other people experience less stress, enjoy higher levels of mental health, feel more connected to your spirit, feel more grateful for what you have and less invested in the 'rat race' that causes stress for so many of us.

The deepest science behind this is that when one uses his mind, speech and body for serving others, he will have everything; he would never be short of material comforts and worldly happiness. Religion begins with an obliging nature. Happiness begins from the moment you do something for others.

The purpose of human life is to break this bondage of life after life and for attaining eternal liberation (moksha) from bondage of karma. It is for the purpose of becoming 'Absolute'-fully enlightened; to acquire Self Realization. And if one does not get the opportunity to attain the knowledge of Self-realization, then he should live for others.

Dadashri's main goal in life was to give happiness to all who met him. He never thought about his own happiness. He was always looking for ways to ease other people's miseries. That is the reason compassion and the extraordinary, divine, spiritual science of "Akram Vignan" manifested within him.

In this compilation, Dadashri has given many comprehensive explanations of unfailing methods for one to fulfill life's goal through serving and helping others. Eternal happiness however is only attained through Self Realization.

Right Understanding to help others

You can help others only when you have absolute peace and bliss. Responsibilities in life can be fulfilled in better way after Self Realization
