meaning of life (Bahai)

Definition
The soul is eternal and essentially good. Purpose of life is to develop spiritually and draw closer to God.

In the Bahá'í view, the purpose of this life on earth is for each individual to develop the spiritual and moral qualities that lie at the core of his or her nature.

Bahá'u'lláh referred to the human being as a "mine rich in gems of inestimable value." These "gems" or qualities can be "mined" or developed only when a person turns to God.

But while this awesome task must remain the responsibility of the individual, humanity has received continual guidance from a loving Creator on how to accomplish it through the Manifestations and their writings.
