• One great question underlies our experience, whether we think about
    it or not: what is the purpose of life? From the moment of birth
    every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering.
    Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affects this.
    >From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment.
    Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the
    greatest degree of happiness.
