Even the virtuous people do not understand the right purpose of human birth
The pious souls feel satisfied in achieving success in the physical world. Think, is it enough? Is it the right purpose of human life? Is it not the time to make efforts to get rid of the vicious cycle of death and rebirth? Yes, right understanding and the right purpose of human birth is totally different. The purpose is to search The Absolute, learn The Eternal Truth, and achieve salvation. The True Devotion blesses the worldly pleasures at its own.
In the present time, there is only one Enlightened Saint in the form of Jagatguru Rampal JI Maharaj. A seeker must go to him, prostrate him, serve him, and ask candidly, he will bestow upon him the Absolute Truth and the methodology of achieving salvation.
