I was cruising the 'net and was led to a site called "Listen to My Soul Song (Ananda Sangha). I bookmarked for further inquiry tonite at work.
Then I was led to a Yahoo question about the destination in life. There was a reply from someone who said it so succinctly. It explained "Ananda" and now I want to check out the other site now!
"The destination of life is to merge onself onto the supreme consciousness that is expressed in all the human beings in unit form.
This thing will give you the "Ananda" (the infinite pleasure) which everybody seeks in one or another form.
Death is just an stage and u can say a junction before which the consciousness expressed in you is in your body (the physical form) and after which either it goes onto another physical form or may unite with the supreme consciousness.
supreme consciousness often people refers to so called God.
and more scientifically it is not the thing to say and listen try to feel the thing....Go for finding your inner secrets...."
