Question
Hi Sir,

Namaste..

From some philosophies I come to know Soul is Purusha and the Mind-Body is Prkriti. The goal of life is to merge into Purusha who is above Prakriti. This is other concept.

Practically, in worldly life is it possible to connect with our Soul and find what our basic desire is and proceed with that?
Please share what you think of this..

Thanking you,
OM.

Answer
Dear Vimal,

What should be your basic desires? Fulfilling your duties and engaging in righteous action, in other words, Dharma. There is no bar in proceeding on this path and the Soul gets merged with Prakriti. Regards,

Yours sincerely,
