Is there some research conducted in the area of "Purpose of Existence of the Universe or God?"

The human race becomes quite fanatic when it comes to religion. And there are quite a good number of spiritual leaders who advise people on their religions...

My question to ALL the spiritual leaders are as under:

1. .Show me ONE person who has interacted and is still interacting and can make me experience the Divine maybe Jesus, Allah or any other God?

2. Everyone talks about Karma and Who am I? I request everyone to think beyond that.. What is Universe? Why does it exist in the first place? Why are we unable to look beyond Earth except for the few NASA scientists/astronauts?

  • Sep 17 2012: A good query but i make out that the answer to this is not there with anyone! To find out the reason we have something more as before creation of universe!

    A new o express you question! But i afraid still unanswerable.!
    • Sep 17 2012: Thanks Jasreet Singh... I agree with you completely that I do not think ANY spiritual leader has the answer to this question... Then what is the point in fighting in the name of religions when we just do not know who or what we are ? and what we are talking about?

      I invite ANY spiritual Guru including the famous ones like His Highness The Pope, His Highness Dalai Lama, Sri Sri Ravishankarjee and similar great gurus.. to share their wisdom with the TED community on this thought. I just hope I get enough support from the community.

        Sep 20 2012: You are right. Religions do not answer this question. If you live love, you wouldn't be asking this question.
        • Sep 21 2012: I am really looking for that one GURU who can make me experience the fact WHY I exist...

          I have heard all sorts of theories from famous spiritual institutions. I also realize that many will judge me as a show off of my ego, I humbly would like to convey to all that I am just not interested in myself... I am more interested in the purpose of life and purpose of universe and God...
