Why This Work?
It is my firm belief that the one who has a why can cope with any how in this unique once for all existence we call life. Meaning is at the_ root of all happiness. Life is a search for meaning. It is an exhilarating experience to discover that ones own life has a meaning. The perception of meaning adds colour and vigour, completeness and fulfillment. For me personally, this work though begun on account of the demands and requirements of attaining a Degree, has been even more, an arrival at and re-possession of the meaningfulness of a way of life I had chosen since some years. The central question, therefore, around which this whole work is situated is why should I be a Priest? My finite existence being the starting point of this Thesis, the purpose of this preface is to situate the immediate context, which is in other words, my own context.
