Our Five Primary Goals in Life

According to Ayurveda, human beings have Five Primary Goals in life.

1. Dharma: fulfilling our life purpose, expressing our true identity

2. Artha: meeting our basic needs for survival

3. Kama: fulfilling our need for pleasure

4. Moksha: fulfilling our desire for freedom and ultimately spiritual liberation

5. Prema: fulfilling our desire for pure, unconditional love (the love of God)

Five Primary Goals, Health & Happiness

All of us share these five fundamental goals. Holding an awareness of these goals can help us better understand and accept ourselves while we pursue them. In order for us to be healthy, content, happy, and successful, each of them must be reasonably fulfilled.

Authentic forms of healing inclusively honor these five goals of life within the context of their medicinal practices. Doing so supports the root of physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual wellness.

Learn more about the Five Primary Goals and how to fulfill them in my new book, Total Life Cleanse, and join us for one of our upcoming Total Life Cleanse programs.
