The Goal of Life

Quotes by Srila Prabhupada on The Goal of Life

In this material world, to render service to the lotus feet of Govinda, the cause of all causes and to see him everywhere, is the only goal of life. This much alone is the ultimate goal of human life, as explained by all the revealed scriptures. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 07.07.55.

Three Great Riches of Life

In Vedic literature Krishna is the central point of attraction and His service is our activity. To attain the platform of love of Krishna is life's ultimate goal. Therefore Krishna, Krishna's service and love of Krishna are the three great riches of life.

Goal of Our Life

The Lord comes in a different form or partial form in order to deliver his devotees and generally he is always telling us how to surrender and how to serve him. If one directly serves the Lord with no condition, unconditionally "I am serving you Lord for Your pleasure, I want me to do what you want me to do". If we do things in that way the amazing thing is that the Lord becomes very pleased with us. The Supreme Lord has given us everything, what can we do for him? When we appreciate how great he is and feel grateful, that is the beginning of pure devotion. Pure devotion should be the goal of our life.

The Ultimate Goal of Life

The ultimate goal of life is not to attain peace but that is a beginning platform. The ultimate goal of life is to fully surrendering to Krishna.
