Why was I born?

I looked for my true calling
I looked for my true purpose
What I am supposed to do on the planet
Why was I born ?
And I asked the question deep inside me
Beyond logic, beyond thought, deep in the bowels
Of the space where I connect to the Universe
Where I can be thrown into the raging storm of ‘not knowing’
And the answer hit me in an immense tidal wave of understanding
“You are your own purpose
Nothing more, and nothing less
A bundle of purpose and karma
All existing within itself
And the only thing holding it back
Is the separation created by
Words like ‘I’ and ‘my’ and ‘me’.”

Till Next then


  1. Why was i born, whats my calling, whats my purpose on this universe.
    i am my own purpose. it is such a simple and deep thought. i think i understand it now:)

  2. “you are your own purpose”
    no more need be said…
    but you say so much so beautifully, Mr. Abhimanyu, it is like music to my senses.

  3. Abhimanyu , this is beautiful !
    Of all those questions that cross the mind, If there is one singular , most important question you want the attention to work out, it’s this one – Who Am I?
    Do not answer it, let it remain as a seed. If anything ,feed it with loving eagerness. This alone has so much power to unlock and answer itself. That one self-destructing question which puts to rest all others.!
