Maharishi – a happy man – purpose of life
According to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the purpose of life is to grow happiness. Many philosophers use various descriptions of the purpose for which man is developing. They are all right in their own ways. That one and the right cannot be put into one word. The word happiness is especially foreign to the Finnish folk character, so let us use it especially here, so that the over-the-top mourner also hears words different from the mainstream of the information flood. (Actually, when you do a Google search for example with words “purpose of life”, quite many search results say purpose of life is NOT happiness, as if they had read about Maharishi’s thougths???? Well, that is the age of ignorange or Kali yuga whispering).
Once again, just one word, happiness, is not enough to describe the whole truth, but for good reason Maharishi Mahesh Yogi launched it as his own “trademark”. There was a man on the last with a sense of humor, the “true ones” couldn’t keep up with him. But, of course, not all the advanced men need to cultivate a great deal of humor. All remain individuals despite the progress.
The basic steps of evolution
The two basic steps of development are rest and action, at least according to Maharishi . The more sophisticated and refined the action, the more advanced it becomes. I’ll pass a closer examination of what it is to bring a “more refined” activities, because I have been angering many people who are beginning to conclude in their minds the degree of their own evolution based on what I have said. Resting is a tricky place for many people when stress and rush get in the way.
But the fact is, rest is a must. Nothing helps, even if there is a “million” things to do. for the vata person the situation is the most difficult and for the kapha the easiest. vata is joking and grooming, so meditation is the number one thing, for example. Kapha, on the other hand, is calm and peaceful in most tough places (unless you happen to be disturbed by Kapha, who mostly resides in hospitals). Well, beyond this, my intentions today do not extend. Happy Wednesday everyone
