What is this life made up of? Am not talking in terms of Physics. Take a break. Am flouting this idea of what is life in purely sociological terms.! Not even philosophy!
This is made of following elements:
Artha~Objective Oriented, Talk Sensible
Kartavya~Man is a Social Animal
SwaDharma~Service to Humanity
Dharma & Moksha~Righteousness and Liberation
Life in total is Nothing Else.!
धर्मेच अर्थेच कामेच मोक्षेच भरतर्षभ
यदिहास्ति तदन्यत्र यन्नेहास्ति न तत् क्वचित्।।
In the realm of Dharma, Artha, Kaam, and Moksh, whatever is not found here (Mahabharata), will not be found anywhere else.
There are these 4 categories of events which make our lives. We keep on jumping from one arena to other. The other 2, are difficult to reach. Vishnu Bhagwan helps in understanding Dharma (the Life), and Shiv Bhagwan preaches everything about Moksha (the Death).
