What is the purpose of life? What is Dharma? Dharma means higher purpose. The Law of Dharma says that ultimately the Dharma of all of us to reach enlightenment, unity, consciousness and total freedom from conditioning, There are several subsets of that purpose. We are here on to fulfill our talent and when we express our unique talents, we serve a higher purpose. We feel joy when we do this and even our profession should be in alignment with our Dharma. Our bigger purpose though is always to reach enlightenment and to find our true identity. That is when we learn how to be, not to love how to create how to serve and ultimately how to exercise subtle intension in choiceless awareness so we become an evolutionary impulse of the universe.

  • Considero que he identificado mi talento único o por lo menos uno de ellos; pues es indescriptible la alegría y liberación que siento cuando lo realizo y por lo tanto, estoy en el proceso de ponerlo al servicio de la humanidad. Gracias Deepak por ser la fuente de toma de conciencia en mi vida. Cariños.

  • Namaste I often catch you on Vision Quest and have read a few of your books. I therefore believe you will be able to help me understand the issue below. I am a third generation South African of Indian origin. I do not have any training or understanding of Indian Classical music. I also cannot speak my mother tongue, Telugu. I am often moved to tears when I listen to Indian Classical music. I think something about this music resonates with some deep part of me....a connection at soul level ? Can you explain this emotional response ? Thank you

  • I started with one of your books and ended up reading everything you have published. It created a thirst in me to seek the truth. Seeking the truth puts you face to face with your self. The self that most everyone is ignorant about and that ignorance is the source of all suffering. To mistake your mind and thoughts as your self will ensure a lifelong in a self made prison of duality of seeking happiness and the avoidance of pain. As long as you are living in the mind than your allowing destiny to hook into you with no relief in sight. Your words send echos deep into my ancient state and the unmanifested has been able to break through to me and guid me. I no longer seek pleaure or pain but the freedom from both. I stand aside aloof with dispassionate detachment, a witness at best. I no longer feel there is a barrier between the inner and outer and this your words ring true "the world is in me" Friends and family accused me of being mad, posessed or just chosen to take the service road of life`s highway. All I know is I am nothing and want nothing....The body and its mind do project a very intresting seemingly real imaginary word and as long as you are in it, it will always seem real. Thank you for that spark...with a seed you make a forest. I was not aware of my own suffering, how could I? A blind man born blind does not know darkness for he has never experienced light.

  • Thank you for contributing to the beauty of life with your commentary. The purpose of life is to contribute to making the Earth a heaven like oasis of love in the infinite field of the Universe. This is done by increasing the capacity of the planet to support the greatest diversity of living creatures by improving the ecosystem. The Earth is the foundation of all the life that inhabits it. Spirit incarnates on this planet as beings because it provides a vast array of opportunities to explore the physical permutations of love. Humans are here to manage the earth with the goal of maximizing diversity and the intricacy of life. People must remember that they are just a portion of Universal Consciousness. They are simultaneously everything and are no better than the smallest particle of dust. It is just that people are given the gift of knowledge and the capacity to exercise it. This gift is only temporary. For in the next life they are most likely to be reborn as a single cell in a blade of grass. For this reason it is important to understand that by increasing the capacity of the Earth to support the greatest diversity of creatures humans offer themselves the possibility to incarnate as another of the majestic creatures with whom we share this planet and to live out the full measure of life in the joy of experiencing that consciousness. The fact is that people have no idea of what can be experienced but it is the human responsibility to ensure that the ground for evolution is rich and fertile.

  • “You wander from room to room hunting for the diamond necklace that is already there” Rumi This search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousands of years, pondering on the same old questions as to who we are and what our purpose of birth is. We are pulled through life by promises like a donkey by carrots, bouncing towards life to reach the crowning point by focusing on all self satisfying ventures, like our goals, ambitions and dreams, contemplating it as our purpose of life and then one day the sun goes behind the clouds and we die. Actually mankind is submerged in the sea of materialism and lives a life of barter and wage seeking happiness through this game of materialism which clothes our mind and body but disrobes our soul. We need to know, purpose of life is our spiritual trade which satisfies our soul. Life is not a question of doing but a question of believing and its purpose is not one big cosmic meaning for all, but just the meaning we give to our life. We are here to hold our pen, write our novel, and become our author. Everyone has been made for some particular work and the desire for that has been put in every heart. Just we need to find it through our sensitivity, our desire, realize our purpose and fulfill our dharma. Dharma is not the only one that Buddha and Mahavir practiced but is all encompassing and universal and all physical laws merge into it. Many people live their lives without even reflecting on the life itself or on its meaning. No matter their lives may not reflect their purpose, still they knowingly or unknowingly live up to the purpose. Life should be seen as an eternal process of joyous spiritual discovery and growth. This attainment of life’s purpose depends entirely on the efforts we make ourselves through the daily struggle of material existence. People gradually deepen their understanding of their higher purpose and this understanding enables them to relate more effectively to themselves and to others and to God. I believe, “Passion is the path to purpose.” Our unique talent is the way of finding our purpose. We know that what we simply love serves ourselves, others and the world in a unique way, which opens the door for creativity and eventually reaches the state of enlightenment. Our purpose of life is the inner sensibility for anything. Mother Teresa immersed herself in the selfless service for the under privileged and eventually reached the state of enlightenment. Picasso painted the pictures with its inner sensibility and enjoyed every moment of his work, putting his stamp on the world. If I have madness for writing, it ripens into our purpose of life, eventually serves the world. As soon as you trust yourself you will know how to live. We need to learn to get in touch with the silence within ourselves. Actually, the activities of mind fuel our ambitions and desires. As we move out of mind into the nature of our true being, in this state of thoughtlessness of present moment, our creativity springs. There is an inside fire, we need to sit and concentrate on this inner dance of our selves. This overwhelming passion within us gives meaning to our lives. We become the channel for the energy to manifest for the higher purpose to unfold. What flows from within is unmistakable blessing given to us. “When we do things from our soul we see the river moving within us.” Thus we live totally, we live intensely, a life with a Midas Touch- Whatever we touch becomes golden, making life a series of golden moments and thus we live completely. “Let other’s lead small lives, but not you; Let others argue over small things but not you; let others cry over small hurts but not you; Let others leave their future in other’s hand but not you”

  • Just watched the video.. You're close... but not exactly. The true meaning of life will enlighten us by its own virtue, it will connect and prove or disprove the theories that already exist. I know what the meaning of life is, it fills the holes in the greatest theories that we know, it explains how these theories which have never been considered "connected" and it connects them. It explains why all things in the universe act or behave in the ways that they behave, and it explains why humans & all living things behave in the way that they do.

Do you agree with this contention as well or you notice some limitation and contend to ask them to either qualify dharm with word `sanatan` or just call it Indian? I understand you have a powerful voice and the resurgence of our age old civilisation should be uniformly motivated with a clear cut diection?

  • I have achieved it, thanks to you and to Eckhart Tolle. It began when I began experimenting with fasting and pure diet. I spent my life with a higher than average commitment to health and wellness. This eventually led me to reading books on spirituality; howver, I don`t think I would have achieved dharma without Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra, the modernd day philosophers that I admire most.

  • Our purpose in life is to serve our brothers and sister, we are blessed and don`t realize it and we need to help those that are less fortunate.

  • Sufi sage advocates- " Know O` Beloved that man was not created in jest or at random, but made for some great end." Finding our purpose is reaching our purpose. But where will we begin this journey of purposeful life? When we ask a common man about his purpose of life, he would simply say- " I don`t know, I am just living life. But he does not know that this simple life is not so simple, it is holy, sacred and divine in a way & indeed we lack the insight to catch the drift of our life. Our purpose of life is very simple but we make it unnecessarily too heavy, too mysterious & too serious. It is simply the essence of who we are & our reason for being alive which arises from within the heart. It is all about understanding ourselves, abiding God`s wish & to search the truth within us, for which we should live & die. Our purpose of life is sketched in the very childhood through our favorite activities, which we pursue without any awareness of being purposeful. It takes long years to fill the shades of purpose in it. Very simple! To know our purpose we need to know our passion, finding the reason for our heart to sing & dance. Our unique talent is the way of finding our purpose. We know that what we simply love, serves ourselves & others & the world in a unique way. Everyone has been made for particular work & desire for the same is put in every heart. This inner passion is the gateway of our purpose of life. If I have the madness for writing, it will ripen into our purpose of life Doing our passionate work gives positive vibes & we need to swim with our work rather than force action into it. Fulfilling life`s purpose needs commitment & perseverance. Mother Teresa immersed herself in the selfless service for the under privileged & reached the state of enlightenment. To go through life without the chatter of our limited personality & without the conditioning of our culture & background, opens the door to present moment where we feel connected to ourselves & others. This creates reason for a purposeful life & window to enlightenment & unity consciousness. " We wander from room to room hunting for the diamond necklace which is already in our neck." Rumi

  • I learn most from your teachings. Thank you Deepak. Pls tell me what does "fit in like a jigsaw puzzle- >no extra parts allowed < " does that mean we`re unique in 1 ability or profession? What if I had 10 years of working in my vocation of which I had a calling for from as young as 4 years old, and life circumstances took a toll and I did not respect my max capacity of work and as a `doc in the box` got overworked indirectly by system and CEOs to point of complete burnout AND cannot recover? I`d like to harness the rest of what abilities is left in me as a "recovered jigsaw puzzle" fitting into a less stressful field like art where I also just like my previous field art was a component in the healing "arts. To me I did my best, and learned too from setting boundaries bc I didn`t not expect ppl to exploit my abilities to my detriment. G-d willing I may decide to return very part-time, but I still feel an itch to give to this world my creative expression thru art even though some ppl are conditioned to believe that only doctors and lawyers are noble jobs. Just making an observation bc art can brighten the lives of ppl as well as so many jobs out there that ppl think are "beneath them" or not as worthy of as praise. Hope I made sense. Thank you very much. Your teachings are out of this world ! You are an amazing soul and deeply connected w the Cosmos. Keep sharing. Pls make a video about motivation and self-esteem or internal derived reference etc.... That would be great- something I`m learning the hard way, bc I`m very sensitive to non-verbal cues tho I already no longer do the object derived reference thing. With much respect, Namaste, MIBS xoxo

  • Just as Universe exists through a human eye -you lose your vision or close your eyes and boom its gone - life is life becaus we are living it - the idea of life survives through us ! so its the other way round - life has a meaning only because of us - we give it, its identity - the mystery begins when we start getting intrigued -

  • oh plz, could we send peaceful energy and focus our attention on the Palestinian hunger strikes? could we announce and reveal to the world how they are oppressed? How they are struggling for their simple human rights in the Israeli prisons? Santa Barbara, CA - Can anyone doubt that if there were more than 1,500 prisoners engaged in a hunger strike in any country in the world other than Palestine, the media in the West would be obsessed with the story? Such an obsession would, of course, be greatest if such a phenomenon were to occur in an adversary state, such as Iran or China, but almost anywhere it would be featured news, that is, anywhere but Palestine. It would be highlighted day after day, and reported on from all angles, including the severe medical risks associated with such a lengthy refusal to take food, with respected doctors and human rights experts sharing their opinions.
