God, by showering His grace has blessed us with four things - 1) this human life, 2) the understanding 3) the means and 4) the capabilities. These four things have been given to us primarily for the purpose of realizing the Truth (attaining salvation, God or Self Realization).

A very important point here is that the time, the means, the understanding and the competencies that we currently have, if we engage them all in realizing the Truth (God, Self) then perfection (realization) in human life can be achieved. We have already been provided all that is needed for God Realization. And if there is any thing lacking (deficiencies), then God will fulfill those deficiencies Himself. The kingdom of God is open at all times for everyone.

It is said in the Ramcharitramanasa - "Kabahu kari karunaa ner dehi; Det is binu hetu sanehi." (Manasa 7:43:3)
In man there is a feeling of uncertainty, how can I realize God? However, this life, this birth is only for this purpose. There is no other purpose. Yet deep within us lingers this thought, this subtle doubt, that are we really capable ? Are we really worthy? This feeling of unworthiness, is the greatest obstacle in realizing God. Just like a mother always accepts her child in her lap, no matter how good or bad he is. The child is ever entitled to be in his mother's lap. Similarly we are all eligible for God Realization, no matter what we are.

God says in the Gita "Api chetsuduraachaaro, bhajate maam ananya bhaak
Saadhureva sa mantavyah samyagvyavasitohi saha" (Gita 9:30)
Simply speaking, even if the worst of sinners becomes Mine, he should be considered a saint, because he is determined to turn towards Me, says God. Only due to his firm determination. Once this determination is made, can wrongful actions become obstacles in God Realization? Is God so very weak that He will be stalled by few actions?

Pay attention to this verse. It is mentioned here that God, is a well-wisher without any motive, and simply by His grace He has bestowed this human life on us, so that we can become free from sorrows and attain Him. The implication here is that God intends for our upliftment, our benediction. So with a little effort on our part, His intention will come true.

In summary the purpose of life is to serve others, to realize the truth (Self) and to believe in God as our very own. It is for these, that this human life, this human birth has been received.
