Once upon a time, there lived a wealthy king named Raj who ruled his kingdom with love, justice and fairness. He was a great leader and was loved by all his subjects.
Raj had four sons who were all smart and intelligent, but he had no one to share his wisdom and teachings with them. He wanted his sons to understand the importance of purushartha, the four main goals of life – Dharma (righteousness), Artha (possessions or resources), Kama (desire or pleasure) and Moksha (spiritual liberation).
One day, Raj decided to take his sons on a journey to teach them the principles of purushartha. He packed his belongings and they set out on their journey.
For many days they traveled, visiting holy places, learning about different religions and meeting wise teachers who taught them the importance of dharma, artha, kama, and moksha. They were filled with knowledge and wisdom.
At the end of their journey, the king and his sons returned home wiser and with a deeper understanding of the four main goals of life.
The king then asked his sons to each write an essay, explaining the importance of purushartha. After the sons submitted their essays, the king was amazed. He saw that all four of his sons had imbibed the lesson of purushartha.
Moral of the Story:
The moral of this story is that when we take the time to learn and understand the goals of our life, we become strong and wise. Purushartha is the basis of a fulfilling, meaningful and contented life.
