Buddhism Day by Day: We Are Born to Live With Purpose or Value

“A life lived without purpose or value, the kind in which one doesn’t know the reason why one was born, is joyless and lackluster. To just live, eat and die without any real sense of purpose surely represents a life pervaded by the life state of animals. On the other hand, to do, create or contribute something that benefits others, society and ourselves and to dedicate ourselves as long as we live up to that challenge — the is a life of true satisfaction, a life value. It is humanistic and lofty way to live.”
