Daily nectar of word meaning Day 20

நாள்தோறும் சொற்பொருள் அமிர்தம்

All our life is along ’pravritti-mārga’; that is to say; that our life is very much a part and parcel of the world; we seek joy and we pursue actions to attain objects of desire, hoping those would give us the happiness that we seek.

The embodied life is for enjoyment and as discussed, the purushārta or the human goals are – dharmā , kāma and arthā – which are all for enriching our life. We therefore go after things in the world that will make us happy. Of course, as we seek more and more happiness, strive more and more. Only for this reason, this life style is called ‘pravritti-mārga’, a perpetual road for seeking and acquiring more objects of desire through out of current embodied life and also beyond.

Is it not possible to attain the complete fulfilment in the pravritti-mārga? Is that the reason, there exists another life-style called nivritti-mārga?

No! All paths lead to the same goal. The point is as we tread along the path, we must have a clear idea of what we are seeking and also what the rules are for the journey.

So briefly we need to discuss the ‘what we are seeking’ first and then the rules of each of the life-style. So the million dollar question is ‘what are you seeking in your life?’
