    I think the purpose of life as a human is to try and never be born again. – user17858 May 1 '19 at 9:11

    The purpose is to get moksha because the material world is full of suffering. – Wikash_ May 1 '19 at 12:18

    @Wikash_hindu, that is only one of the 4 purposes or purushartha - dharma, artha, kama, moksha. – mar May 1 '19 at 15:25

Ramakrishna mission sums it up best:

आत्मनो मोक्षार्थं जगद्धिताय च

Atmano mokshartham jagad-hitaya cha

For one’s own salvation AND for welfare of world
