Self-realization is the goal of human life

Sensory enjoyments, satisfying ego, prestige, power and popularity are the goals for majority of us. However, in reality they open the gates of sorrow and misery.

Our goals change when we are able to clearly understand real and unreal.

True happiness is not in the external. It is in the internal. When the internal is understood in its clearest and profoundest manner, we begin the journey of Self Realization.

Expansion of our spiritual dimension takes place not only through the exercise of intellect but also through purifying, training and refining the mind.
Self-realization is the goal of human life.
