Does the life purpose really exist? If yes, how can find my life purpose?

Answer

Hello Jishnu,

In the broadest sense, the purpose of life is to merge back into God. We came from God and we will all return at some time. God is Sat Chit Ananda. What everyone is doing is trying to avoid pain and find happiness. How we do this determines our life in this incarnation. If we make the spiritual path our first pursuit, it will show us our true life purpose. If instead, we ask “what do I want”? What do I like? What makes me feel good? We are relying on the ego rather than God. Following the ego will not bring us the happiness we seek. You by yourself are one in 7 billion. Do your sadhana first and then ask God to show you how He wants you to serve in this life. You and God can do amazing things together and you can find the joy and purpose you are looking for.

Blessings,
Chidambar
