Lifestyle, Values, and the Meaning of Life

Ashok Vohra

Abstract

There are alternative lifestyles. We choose the one which in our opinion will help us to fulfill our voluntarily chosen purpose or meaning of our life. The paper explores the meaning of “meaning of life.” To understand the notion of meaning of life, I have made an exhaustive and critical survey of the philosophical literature of both Eastern and Western philosophy. I have argued that one finds the meaning of one’s life and fulfills it, if and only if one follows one’s true nature and does not blindly follow what others are doing.
