There are two main questions before any individual: what is the aim of life and how can it be achieved? Although every living being is confronted by these questions, it is only in the human form of life that they can be resolved. This question regarding the aim of the individual soul is an eternal one, and people all over the world are in search of the answer ...
For anyone embarking on their spiritual journey, the aim of life remains the most intriguing question of all. Philosophers, theologians, sages, and pandits since eternity have proposed various theories, and yet for most the answer remains a mystery. To resolve this, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj discusses the fundamentals of Vedic philosophy, referencing the Vedas, Puranas, Upanishads, and Gita, showing its great importance and precedence over other doctrines, during a seven-day lecture series in March 2003. Jeev Ka Lakshya contains the transcripts of those speeches in their entirety.
Right at the outset, Kripaluji gives the emphatic answer in the simplest possible way, and then begins his explanation of all the related points. Throughout he places repeated emphasis on the importance of the human body, urging us to heed the words of the scriptures and saints by embracing spirituality. Our endless pursuit of happiness in the acquisition of material things in this world is discussed and revealed to be a misguided spiritual search for everlasting bliss. This supreme, eternal happiness is God.
Kripalu Ji Maharaj reveals and discusses the wondrous nature of God and His three important aspects, His sweet loving nature, how He is bound by the love of His devotees and remains their loving protector always. The path to God is discussed, and the supreme path for His attainment in this human life is proven to be bhakti. The principles and practicalities of bhakti yoga and meditation are discussed lucidly and simply for the benefit of all.
