In his first book, Science of Being and Art of Living, published 50 years ago in 1963, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi explains, 'Expansion of happiness is the purpose of life, and evolution is the process by which it is fulfilled. Life begins in a natural way; it evolves, and happiness expands. The expansion of happiness carries with it the growth of intelligence, power, creativity, and everything that may be said to be of significance in life.
'The purpose of creation is the expansion of happiness, and this purpose is fulfilled through the process of cosmic evolution. The significance and purpose of individual life is the same as that of cosmic life. The difference is one of scale.
'Individual life is the fundamental unit of the life of the cosmos. If the purpose of individual life is served, automatically and simultaneously the purpose of cosmic life is served to the same degree.'
