Condensed from Talks by Pujya Guruji Shree Rishi Prabhakarji from RishiVani.
Q: Most people spend their life without questioning the real purpose of life. Why is it so?
- For most people the struggle for existence itself is a big challenge.
Their concern is only bodily survival.
To even ask about the purpose of life one must have experienced something very beautiful or something very ugly.
Most people think that one takes to philosophy or spiritual life after a great disappointment. They are still waiting for an unbearable experience to escape from the world of difficulties.
But when you are more sensitive, you ask the question earlier on.
When you see no possible answer, you start becoming still and the answer reveals itself as an experience, and not as an intellectual answer. This is called ‘satori’ or an enlighten-ment experience.
It changes you forever into a higher being, who is detached yet full.
Emptiness is filled and you can recover your poise any time. ~
