Purpose of Life

What is the purpose of Life? The Dalai Lama says it is happiness. If happiness is a form of pleasure, pleasure is a form of attachment, so is happiness contradictory with the Sikh way of life?

Please read the Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji you will learn Jeevan Jaach if you are true Sikh. Do not pay attention what people said pay attention what your Guru Said.

purpose of life is to re unite with the one you have been separated. it is like a mother child relation. both sides long for it. when the unite that is the greatest happiness. that is mentioned in sggs all over. dalailama also means the same.
