Buddhism Day by Day: What is the purpose of life?

“What is the purpose of life? It is happiness. But there are two kinds of happiness: relative and absolute. Relative happiness comes in a wide variety of forms. The purpose of Buddhism is to attain Buddhahood. In modern terms, this could be explained as realizing absolute happiness — a state of happiness that can never be destroyed or defeated.”
