Our goal or purpose in life is to attain and most importantly promote happiness. We all naturally want to remain in a state of happiness don’t we? Is there anyone who like suffering… no one?
So any activity that adds to the overall happiness quotient can be adopted. That would retain the universal happiness… and in-return ensure our own happiness.
(I had asked this question to a guru while I had been to Kumbh Mela. The guru very wisely quoted to me it is “attaining happiness”.)
