Hindu Ideals Page11

As Prof. M. Ranga chariar says, in his Lectures on the Gita, second volume, page 117: " The history of man, as lighted and explained by the associated modern auxiliary sciences gives ample support to the view that the unfoldment of the power of the spirit is in reality the aim of God's government of the universe and that this unfoldment takes place more through ethical evolution than through what has, in contrast, been called 'the natural evolution' that is, more through self sacrifice than through self-assertion, more through altruism than through egoism."

Thus we realize that the enunciation and acceptance of moksha as the supreme goal of life by Indian thinkers has given a unique direction to the whole philosophy of life unparalleled in the history of thought in any other country. 

Relation among the Purusharthas--Kama

Among the four purusharthas, moksha is mentioned as the last as it is the supreme, or parama-purushartha. Next in order comes kama. There is one feature common to both of these Moksha is supreme, unalloyed, eternal happiness, while karma denotes the happiness or joy enjoyed by ordinary mortals in life. They both have as already mentioned the element of happiness.
