The purpose of controlled behavior is absence of regret.

The purpose of absence of regret is joy.

The purpose of joy is satisfaction.

The purpose of satisfaction is calm.

The purpose of calm is contentment.

The purpose of contentment is concentration.

The purpose of concentration is understanding.

The purpose of understanding is disillusionment.

The purpose of disillusionment is detachment.

The purpose of detachment is mental release.

The purpose of mental release is Nirvana,

final freedom, without any remnants of clinging.

―Buddha Shakyamuni
