Purushartha The Goal of Life

What is the objective of human birth do you know the answer? What is the goal of human life? Why we are here on this earth? It’s a big question. Each individual is here to realize their supreme self. Every Individual person is a part of god or we may say reflection of god. There is four goal of this biped animal’s life:

  1. Kama (Worldly desire)
  2. Artha (Wealth and Prosperity)
  3. Dharma (Duty, Moral Order)
  4. Moksha (Liberation)

Let’s read something elaborately about all the objectives:

  1. Kama – Kama means the desire of pleasure (Desires are like – to be wealthy, powerful, recognition, service, etc.). Without harming anyone one has to fulfill his/her desire. Once you started to fulfill these desires reasonably with regards, you can move towards to freedom for them.
  2. Artaha – Artha has several meaning. We may say it meaning, sense, goal, purpose or essence. It depends on the context. But here we can say artha as “worldly success” without violating dharma. If we go to detail, Artha canvas person’s professional activities, job, business, wealth, property and all such earthly material essential in carry on his life.
  3. Dharma – Dharma is counted as the foundation of purusharthas. It is the alignment that makes life and universe feasible and includes duties,  laws, rights, conduct and virtues. In simple word dharma means the right way of living. Dharma also determines duties and obligation for man for his individual life and in the society.
  4. Moksha – As per hindusim moksha is the ultimate goal of life. It is the phase of inner awareness that the individual self is equivalent the Supreme Self. This is the goal where one can achieve freedom from the cycles of birth and death, and experiences the divine happiness.
  1. But commonly people are centralized themselves to fulfill the objectives like Kama and Artha and let slip from Dharma and Moksha. It’s the tragic of a life.  So try to understand the objective of life and put balanced effort to achieve everything.
