The Purpose of Life According to Sikhi
by Sakhee Kaur
Apr 13, 2018

It’s that timeless question that humans have been asking for centuries, “What’s the purpose of life?” or simply, “Why are we here?” People have written treatises, articles, and books about it, but what does Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji say about it?! In this post, we will explore Baani from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee and Bhai Gurdas Ji that shed light on the answer. At the end of this post, I link some fantastic Katha done on this topic in English.

This may sound a little Buddhist but I like to say that the purpose of life is to relieve the suffering of others (seva) and to attain liberation (simran).
