Moksha the goal of human life

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji said the aim of social order is Man-Making: To enable the man to choose his path to attain Moksha
On this path, towards the other world everybody has to go alone. There is no escape from this. Therefore, social order should be so evolved as to enable everybody to attain that goal by a suitable path. I can live my own life and die my own death. I cannot live somebody's life nor can die somebody's death, however great my desire and effort may be. This pilgrimage becomes easier in a congenial atmosphere. The sacred lore in religion and philosophy in India do proclaim this liberation as the only goal of human life.

Mananeeya Eknathji here makes it further clear that for us in India, everything is spiritual. Whatever may be the walk of life, the goal is Mukti - Moksha alone. He clarifies :
But even the secular sciences such as Politics, Dancing, Music, Medicine and many more, declare the goal of human life as salvation. Thus there is a great UNITY OF THOUGHT in all the sciences and arts in India which is nowhere to be found in the world. Ayurveda declares those  Jeevema sharadah shatam. "We will live for a hundred years" and this life is to be healthy, long and robust life. It is bubbling with joy and happiness.  Modama sharadah shatam. Nandama sharadah shatam etc.
