Preface

Human life is unique and offers us great opportunities to attain the highest goals of life. It has the capacity and the essential equipment, which no other living creature has. That is why only in human life, the highest achievement is possible and not I any other form. However, it is indeed a pity that most human beings remain ignorant about the real purpose of their existence and hence, spend most valuable span of their lives in mundane pursuits.

An individual is born, enters childhood, grows up, get old and finally dies. During the short span of life available to us, we all eat, drink, sleep, perform activities required of us and try to be happy, as long as we live, and then die. This seems to be a sad but inevitable climax of life. Between birth and death, there is a strange mix of pleasure and sometimes, there is more pleasure and sometimes, there is more pain. In human existence, in general, there is no absolute pleasure or absolute pain; wherever there is pleasure, there is pain, as well. The great English writer, Thomas Hardy remarked that life is a general drama of pain, or suffering punctuated by an occasional episode of happiness, here and there. We all want to be free form pain and misery of life, but either do not have the necessary knowledge to attain that freedom or do not make the requisite effort to work for it.

What is the way out then?

It is our good fortune, that our spiritual leaders called guru, risbis teachers by virtue of their great spiritual effort or sadhna had discovered the means to achieve the above mentioned goal. In order to do that, they had laid down and standardised FOUR OBJECTIVES of life. These objectives are indeed very difficult, but not impossible. And they form the basis of Hinduism. First of all, human beings are required to equip themselves with moral values which would govern all the aspect of life—material and spiritual. These objectives have to be achieved through four human life. These four stages of life called Ashrams include the preparatory stage, the main dominant period of household, the retired life and the last remaining period of seclusion. The ancient Indian philosophy envisages a definite plan of action where the material and the spiritual aspects of life coalesce harmoniously for the ultimate fulfillment.

This small book, primarily deals with the above-mentioned four objectives of life and allied tropics. An attempt has been made to briefly explain them, in an easy manner, to enable a general reader to understand these fundamentals of human life and consequently, to live life in a useful and desirable manner.
