It guides a person on how to lead a balanced life and attain the ultimate purpose of human existence, which is peace and bliss. It explains that the human mind is always disturbed, restless and wandering in the past, present and future. Due to ignorance and attachments, there is the false belief that these materialistic objects would give more satisfaction and happiness than at present or more than what one already has. The more he obtains these objects, the more man's desires increase, like adding fuel to fire and he is always torn between the dualities of life-death, happiness-sorrow, gain-loss, good-evil and so on.
Only that person who understands that there is nothing to achieve or lose in this world can rise above these dualities, as the two sides of dualities like life-death, happiness-sorrow, gain-loss, good-evil and so on shall always be equal to each other, and one cannot exist without an equal amount of the other. The person who understands the above truth knows that he is neither living nor dead, neither happy nor unhappy, neither good nor evil and so on. He rises above these dualities, does all his duties in life without any desire or aversion and attains ultimate peace and bliss.
