There is a pilgrim soul in all of us, an inner searching that continues throughout our lives For lack of a purpose, millions in despair seek refuge in unbridled consumerism, drugs, alcohol, crime or antisocial behaviour. From times immemorial, man has striven to know his place in this bewildering world, find a direction and pursue a purpose higher than his own advancement. In this book, R.M. Lala addresses these issues through the medium of great lives like Abraham Lincoln, Albert Schweitzer, Emperor Asoka, Vinoba Bhave, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Narayana and Sudha Murthy and others. He highlights the difference between ambition and purpose, career and purpose, and indicates how understanding this lies at the core of understanding oneself. This inspirational and motivational work shows how each of us can find a purpose satisfying to ourselves and meaningful to others.
