Deepak Chopra: What is the Purpose of Life?

What is the purpose of life? What is dharma? In this episode of “Ask Deepak” on The Chopra Well, Deepak addresses this classic, essential question. It may be next to impossible to definitively say what the purpose of life is, as so many philosophers throughout history have been hard-pressed to do. But Deepak contributes this important commentary to the discussion:

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 intention in choiceless awareness so we become an evolutionary impulse of the universe.
