Understanding Your Soul Purpose

Reading Time  — 4 minutes

Master Sri Avinash takes the worry out of trying to figure out your soul purpose and whether you can align your job with your soul purpose. He explains what our deepest soul purpose actually is, and shares insight about what it means to live in line with that totally, in all aspects of our life.

When Roger Federer is losing by one point, 5-6 down, and it’s his second serve, will he feel nervous? No, he’ll compose. Then, bang—he serves an ace! The score is back to deuce.

In the same way, we are here to conquer the challenges we face.
