Swami Rama Thoughts on the Purpose of Life



The journey to the rediscovery of the real Self is the goal of life.
One who has rediscovered his own real Self, can then realize the Cosmic Self who encompasses the entire universe. The purpose of life is to grow, expand and completely realize one’s own true identity.
Life is a drama. We compose and create the dramas that are enacted across the globe. The goal of life is not the drama that is being played, rather the lesson that it offers. Every human being is the playwright of his or her own drama but wrongly believes that it is the ultimate drama instead of a play momentarily enacted for a desired result.
Life is a play and if one misses to understand the lessons of life, one experiences a great deal of sorrow.
