Life has a purpose? Is that a question? Yes!
Of all the animals in the planet earth, Human is the only animal that thinks it is superior, and it thinks it has a purpose of life, and what it defines as the purpose of life is, what it is created by itself, and it never gets satisfied and die.
But animals, they know their purpose of life, is to survive, enjoy the moment and live in peace. They have problems, they have issues, they have enemies, above all, they live with greater peace than a Human does, because animals are very clear that the purpose of life is only to live at peace. Show me which animal is under depression, which animal kills itself because it hates it’s life, and you can show “Nothing”, you know why? because human never bothered to look at the side of animal, for them, an animal is an animal that hunts, eats and live and die.
It is the truth, that animals know nothing last forever, it knows death is a part of life, it has feeling, it feels sad when something bad happens and it knows to move on immediately and it knows to cherish each moment of life, even at the moment of death, so what YOU think the real purpose of life?
According to Buddhism, the primary purpose of life is to end suffering, they also say that humans suffer because they continually strive after things that do not give lasting happiness, Like friends, health, material things, money which do not last, and this only causes sorrow.
They did not deny that there are things in life that gives us joy, but pointed out, that none of them last and our attachment to them only causes more suffering.
Human stuck/addicted in the materialistic illusion of life, now for an example, take corona, it takes your life no matter who you are what you are, and how much you own. So what is the purpose of earning name, money and designation and property. Nothing lasts.
The moment you realize none of this material, money, designation, properties, diamonds are not going to last, that day you will be released from the suffering, then you will get to know the answer for purpose of life.
