The Ultimate Purpose of Life and Gita
“What is the purpose of my life? What do I want? Why am here?”
Many of us ask ourselves these questions at some point during our lives. Answers could be many but one thing is for sure everybody wants to be happy and live peacefully.
The best way to understand God’s purpose for our life is to allow Gita to speak for itself and we listen carefully.
Gita is not a religion, nor does it profess to be a religion. It is a concept of the Universe and the role human beings should perform in it. It explains how we may make the best of life with a purpose and draw fulfillment by living in synchronism with the God’s total creation. Peace and serenity of mind come with an understanding of God’s creation; understanding generates love for others; and, love generates constructive energy to serve others without seeking any return.
According to the Gita, the ultimate purpose of life is only to attain everlasting love, peace and happiness/Anandam, realize God and our true nature (God/Self-Realization),“SAT CHIT ANANDAM”This can be achieved by serving Supreme/God though serving His creation.
To explain this further, I have taken the support of some quotes from Gita.
God is Anandam and Anandam is God
“One who makes me the Supreme goal of his life, who performs all his actions for Me, who is fully devoted to me and always lives in my consciousness, who is free from attachment and enmity (malice) towards all beings; and friendly to all, certainly attains Me, O Arjuna. (Gita.11.55)

The Ultimate Goal of life is “Be Happy, live in Love, Peace and Anandam, and share the same with others.
Part of matter is taken from the book “My questions and God’s Answers” The guide to Eternal, Happiness, Peace and Anandam (BHAGAVAD GITA) by Satya kalra.
