Q: Do you really need to have purpose for life or can you just be happy?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: You have already made being happy as purpose of your life. You already have a purpose. But can you be happy if your family is not happy? Can you really be happy if people around you are not happy? You know, when you expand your vision and awareness, you see that you are a part of everybody. If people around you are suffering, you cannot simply shut your eyes and say, ‘I’ll be really happy’. The subtler you go and the more refined you are, you feel for everyone in the world. You start feeling for trees, animals and plants as well. You begin to care for the environment.
