In Buddhism, real life is a goal. In Buddha Dharma  teachings, it is written "the Blessed one has not come to teach death, but to teach life."(GB: 53: 12). To gain life, man needs to get rid of ignorance for it defiles man and stands in his way to truth. When man is capable of discerning "eternal life ", he leads a truthful life:

This is true deliverance;
This is salvation; this is heaven
And the bliss of life immortal"(GB: 41: 14)

This is also purification His heart is cleansed from all defilement and free from all illusion (GB: 4: 9) Purification of the heart and mind denotes continuity of life or immortality Bodies fall to dust, but the truths of the mind will not be destroyed (GB:2:9)

The person whose mind is not free from gross and subtle ignorance cannot attain truth unless he gets out of Samsara: "contamination aggregates" resulting from defilement of life of illusions:

All the world is vanity fair, full of changes and transformations.
All is Samsara (GB: 2: 4)
