According to the Vedas (the oldest scriptures known to man, which came out of India), there are four major reasons for life. They are:
- Dharma: pursuit of purpose
- Artha: acquisition of material wealth
- Kama: experience of pleasure
- Moksha: spiritual exploration
The Vedas explains that the latter three are contingent on Dharma. That means that the amount of wealth you acquire, the amount of pleasure you experience, and even the amount of time and energy you spend on spiritual practices depends entirely on your pursuit of purpose. Anything beyond what is required for living your purpose is excess and fuels the ego. Discovering your purpose, then, becomes the most meaningful life endeavor. Everything else you do is clarified by that purpose.
