Description
Back of the Book

A quest for the meaning and purpose of life will make us want to know about the quality of permanence. The truth behind this lies in the knowledge of karma and the soul. The philosophy of karma invites us to discover this quality which is contained within each one of us. We have undertaken many journeys in life; but none can ever be as over whelming and fulfilling as the journey to eternity….

About The Book

It is Mostly expected that a particular effort arrants a particular reward but sometimes something completely different happens. Often one expectations are very quickly met with whist on other occasions there is an inordinate delay. Why is it that some action can give a prior picture of the reaction and some cannot determine any reaction? Such questeion have left mankind beffled for ages

Life is quest aims to understand suc queries and explains the force behind such situations on the basis of Karma. Its putpose is that of a searchlight which illuminates this unending journey of life marked with repeated birth and death. It will act as a guide to enable one to tread those paths which are void of obstacles and any unseen dangers thereby acting as a torch bearer to achieve the ultimate destination of salvation.

Preface

Man’s greatness and supremacy rests on his innate ability of understanding and thoughtfulness. Such thought should have its roots in truth and goodness and for the greater benefit f mankind. Analysis of every events experienced in life though the eyes of karma will not only alter man’s vision of life but will also prove to be an impetus for living life with higher and new insights

Nature is resplendent with hidden treasures that can be found in slimy water; rugged mountains give birth to life- energizing rivers; precious illuminating diamonds are founding the darkness of coal mines. These are all pointers to the fact that man too has the power of discovering his latent nature of greatness and godliness within his mortal existence. This book aims to uncover precisely these virtues that will free us from the cycle of life.

Life’s Quest will facilitate in enlightening all those desirous of immortality. It will act as a protective shadow in cautioning man to avoid the tempting albeit erroneous zones o life thus proving to be a one way ticket to salvation

The entire reasoning of this book is based on the transmigration of the soul. It thus becomes imperative to believe in the concept of reincarnation as without this belief it would be impossible to show the union of karma and the soul which really are the basis of all life. Therefore an acceptance of this concept is necessary to understand the thoughts rendered in this book.

Jain religious philosophy emphasizes the importance of the quality of a soul and not the physical projection of soul. Herein rests the secret to the basis of friendship. When each aspect of creation views the other in the light of these pure traits, friendship is born is born. Friendship when fostered leads to salvation which is the essence this book.

Introduction of this world

Life has its own unique pattern. This uniqueness stems from the fact that this pattern is woven out of one design but its manifestation creates several designs. Similarly, life too originates from one focal points but its expression is seen in a wide variety of dissimilar situation and personalities. The cause for wonder is this truth that despite being intrinsically the same, extrinsically no two persons are the same.

The discrepancy is apparent in life. Some are endowed with great physical beauty while some bear the cross of being plain. Many are born with a deficient sense organ whilst others may be blessed with heightened ones. It is a matter of great amazement when minimal efforts reap rich rewards and maximum one lead to naught! Several People are seen showcasing every emotion they feel and yet there are those who do not disclose any emotion. Adverse situation are faced with fortitude by some while most succumb to pressure.

To the thinker these obvious differences are a cause for mystery. It makes one stop to think and question the reasons for this strangeness in life. It is a subject of the meta physical world as the real world has no answers world as the real has no answers to offer. The answers may found in the world karma which simply translated means action activity and has its root in the law of cause and effect. This proves that everything happens for a reason.

As per science this difference may find explanation in the law of heredity. Psychologists support the argument of the law of variation. However if these two opinions are to be accepted then the effort of man is negated. Thus these explanations do not complement the reasons for discrepancies in life, simply because they fail to recognize the effort of man which is the vital reason for anything that happens in life.

All karmic activity begins with the inception of the worldly soul. This soul inhabits all forms of life. In fact this entire world is a representation of karma. All forms of life can attain rest and subsequent peace only when this worldly soul terminates all activity thereby achieving a state of bliss. Thus karma is that tool which despite being responsible for the journey of life can also lead to freedom from the bondage of life.

Karma represents the law of causality which expounds the theory that every action must have a reaction. This action is that which is committed by man and therefore the consequences too must be borne by man. It rests on an to commit those actions which will eventually prove to be peaceful for him. The final aim of life is to free ourselves state of being which allows us joy. It can thus be said that a soul which is saturated with karma is the starting point of life and the soul that is free of karma is the resting point of life. The former suggests struggle and the latter, peace.
