I am a Disciple of Sri Chinmoy, a Spiritual visionary and to the Disciple, a God-realised Soul, or someone who has re-discovered his oneness with the Absolute Supreme.
I like how you frame the question, so I can only speak for me, that's great! In my book, My Guru Sri Chinmoy: Life And Teachings, I have described the goal three different ways. Guruji speaks of all:
1. God-realisation. Oneness with The Absolute
2. Self-transcendence. This is a theme common with Sri Ramakrishna and all the great Masters that I've read, that life is self-transcending, that there is no perfection as such, but an ever-transcending Goal.
3.Unconditional Surrender. I like this one the most; to allow the Divine to use one for It's own purpose: "Let Thy Will be done.' This I understand to be the Highest Law.
So my purpose is to manifest the Divine; to glorify His name; to continue with my spiritual practices in order to re-awaken or re-discover my true nature, then to manifest this fully in the world in which I live, in harmony with the Will of the Supreme. Great question.
