Albert Einstein was a German-born scholar. He was a theoretical physicist by profession and widely acclaimed for his theory of relativity invention. He is considered one of the genius physicists of all time. Einstein has been spiritual at times. He was always curious for meaning of life or purpose of life. He was very open to sharing his thoughts with the world.

“Indeed, it is not intellect, but intuition which advances humanity. Intuition tells man his purpose in this life.”

Albert Einstein

His thoughts on the meaning of life have been in various dimensions. Finding answers to the meaning of life or Purpose of life becomes religious. You cannot get any selfless angle from the religious point of view. However, His one of the abstract is human being should live their lives selflessly and contribute to the society.

I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own — a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotisms.

Albert Einstein

He followed the principle of Ramana Maharishi of ‘Liberating from the self.’ An exact value of humans can be recognized by how he has attained an Enlightenment journey to Salvation. He intelligently connects science to get the answer for meaning of life or purpose of life.

“Strange is our situation here on Earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to divine a purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that man is here for the sake of other men – above all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness depends.”

Albert Einstein

He emphasizes raising his Consciousness level by practicing the Mediation techniques. He says our identification is our limitation, We are beyond that. He experienced that there is no life and death process into one, neither evolution nor destiny, there is ‘Only being’ which he refers to as Consciousness.

Awareness is the only key to meaning of life. Albert Einstein purpose of life is to find the meaning of our existence. Why universe exists? Albert Einstein purpose of life has never been a rational or religious. However, the view of Einstein on life was always radical.

One cannot find the meaning of life by Intellect, rather one has to go with the Intuition.

“I have made the Bhagwad Gita as the main source of my inspiration and guide for the purpose of scientific investigations and formation of my theories.”

Albert Einstein

“I once thought that if I could ask God one question, I would ask how the universe began, because once I knew that, all the rest is simply equations. But as I got older I became less concerned with how the universe began. Rather, I would want to know why he started the universe. For once I knew that answer, then I would know the purpose of my own life.”
