The Goal of Human Life

The Goal of Human Life

“Lord Brahma said: My dear demigods, the human form of life is of such importance that we also desire to have such life, for in the human form one can attain perfect religious truth and knowledge. If one in the human form of life does not understand the Supreme personality of Godhead and His abode, it is to be understood that he is very much attached by the influence of external nature.” – Srimad Bhaagavatam 3.15.24

Suta Goswami said: “Life’s desires should never be directed towards sense gratification. One should desire only a healthy life or self-preservation, since a human being is meant for inquiring about the Absolute Truth. Nothing else should be the goal of one’s works.” – Srimad Bhaagavatam 1.2.10

“Suta Goswami said: O best among the twice-born, it is therefore concluded that the highest perfection one can achieve by discharging the duties prescribed by one’s own occupation according to caste divisions and orders of life is to please the Personality of Godhead.” – Srimad Bhaagavatam 1.2.13

“Svayambhuva Manu said: My dear Dhruva, please surrender unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead who is the ultimate goal of the progress of the world. – Srimad Bhaagavatam 4.11.27

“When Maharaja Pruthu became completely free from the conception of bodily life, he realized Lord Krishna sitting in everyone’s heart as the Paramatma. .. He (Pruthu) thoroughly realized that devotional service to Krishna is the ultimate goal of life.” – Srimad Bhaagavatam 4.23-12

“ .. One must render service unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead in one’s heart by His omnipotence. Because He is the ultimate goal of life, and by worshipping Him one can end the cause of conditioned state of existence.” – Srimad Bhaagavatam 2.2.6
