Purpose of Life

“The purpose of life is undoubtedly to know oneself. We cannot do it unless we learn to identify ourselves with all that lives… The instrument of this knowledge is boundless, selfless service.”

(MKG in a letter to an English friend, Muriel Lester, June 21, 1932, in Mahadev Desai, The Diary of Mahadev Desai, p 184.)
