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 fulfil life's goal through serving and helping others. Eternal happiness however is only attained through Self-realization.


Spiritual Quotes on "Help others - The Purpose of Life"

  1. Happiness begins from the moment you do something for others.
  2. The only purpose of the human life and its essence is this: To use one's mind, body and speech for others.
  3. He who wants happiness should make others happy and he, who wants misery, should make others miserable.
  4. Whatever benefits come your way, whether they are related to your body, your mind or your speech, if you give these benefits freely to others, you will receive everything for yourself. You will not lack any of life's necessities.
  5. Dharma(religion) begins from the moment you begin to give happiness (sukh) to others. Compassion begins when one is not worried about his own happiness but is constantly preoccupied with helping others in difficulty.
  6. If you cannot Help Others at least make sure that you do not hurt anyone, even if they have caused you problems. A person hurts you because of the effect of your own past karma unfolding in this life.
  7. A person who takes care of his parents will, in turn, be taken care of and all his needs will be met.
  8. Real service is that which is done silently, without anyone's knowledge. If it is visible, then it is not called a service.
  9. There are all kinds of services to society, but the true service is one where a person does not have even the slightest belief of, 'I am doing a service to the society.'
  10. Relative religions are the path of the worldly life. They are the path of service to others. The path of liberation goes beyond serving others. It is to remain in the bliss of the Self (soul).

Science behind "Help others - The Purpose of Life"


  1. A person whose intentions are to serve others will be rewarded with worldly happiness; and the one who has intentions to hurt will be punished with worldly unhappiness. However, the Self cannot be attained through serving others. Until one attains the Self, one should maintain an obliging nature.
  2. If you spend for your self, it will go into the gutter (go to waste). If you spend for the welfare of others, it will help you in your future life.
  3. Nature's law is such that if you give the fruits of your own efforts to others, nature will take care of you. That is the hidden science.
  4. What is the nature of the worldly life? God resides in every living being and if you hurt anyone, even in the slightest degree, you violate your moral duty, your religion (dharma). If you Help Others, religion will be there. This will bring you what you desire. The fruit of hurting others (adharma) results in pain (dukh) and your desires will not be fulfilled.

Questioner : I feel lot of pain when I see people's sufferings and miseries. What can I do Dada ? Please advice.

Dadashri : After Self-Realization, you will not feel pain upon seeing the misery of others, rather you will remain compassionate and their suffering will lessen. At the moment, what you experience for others is sympathy. That sympathy will always cause you pain because it torments you with what you imagine the other person must be feeling. Where there is sympathy (daya), there is always the ego. However, without sympathy (daya), the relative-self (prakruti) would not do any service. After Self-Realization, you will have compassion (karuna).

  1. Dadashri's main goal in life was to give happiness to all who met him. He never thought about his own happiness.He used to feel that if a person did not benefit in some way by meeting him, then it was useless for the person to meet him.
  2. Dadashri : "Anything that one does in order to attain the Self (Atma), is regarded as production and because of that, he will automatically receive the byproducts and all worldly necessities. I only keep one type of production, 'Let the world attain absolute peace and may many attain liberation (moksha).' This is my production and that is why I continue to receive all these byproducts. The material comforts and luxuries I get are different than what you get. That is because my production is of a very high quality. In the same way, if your production was of a higher quality, then your byproduct would also be of a higher quality. There is an intention behind everything. If your intention is to serve others, then you will receive money as a byproduct".
