The purpose of life according to most hindu and vedic traditions is liberation from rebirth. But ultimately this just seems like going back to square one in every sense. How is it possible then that beings like Krishna and Rama have been born and reborn despite being fully realised and free from carma.

Most hindu people live life with a goal of not living again. This seems extremely contradictory in every way especially also in the light of bhagavad gita where the main instruction is to live life and act without pertaining to the fruit of action. But freedom from rebirth and merging with the absolute is again a fruit of action one can be attached to.

  • "How is it possible then that beings like Krishna and Rama have been born and reborn despite being fully realised and free from carma." This is called a paradox and has not been solved om Hinduism. Such conumdrums occur a lot in Hinduism and other religions. – Wikash_ Apr 17 at 8:13
