A Life Of Purpose

Another quote:

The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

Robert Byrne

What does it mean to live a life of purpose? The Buddha taught that there were five purposes of life:

1. Purifying one's mind
2. Passing beyond sorrow and dispair
3. Overcoming bodily and mental suffering
4. Following the right path
5. Seeing Nirvana for one's own self.

Through this practice of mindfulness, may my life truly have purpose!
