There is a story that goes like this, Once upon a time, a student went to a great sage to ask about the meaning of life and how to attain the direct experience of the Highest. He asked his question, but the sage gave no answer. He just sat there. Again, the student asked about how to find and fulfill the Purpose of life. Again, the sage just sat there. The student tried different words, and appealed with great emotion. The sage just sat there, as before.
- After all, if I was going to die anyway, I might as well do some good.
