Abstract: The essence of a better life is a state of life with common values satisfying itself, which has been vividly explained by ancient sages at home or abroad. A better life in the new era should be people-oriented, comprehensive, qualitative, shared, and developmental. A better life in the new era aims to enable the people to live a better life and achieve common prosperity, social fairness and justice for all. The Communist Party of China ought to stay true to its founding mission, keep its mission firmly in mind, and to insist on meeting the people's needs for a better life. “As socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era, the principal contradiction facing Chinese society has become the one between unbalanced and inadequate development and the people's ever-growing needs for a better life.” [1] What is a better life is an important topic of The Times worth discussing. To understand the essence of the better life, we must first define the meaning of “better”. “Mei” means “an image found and created by people in nature, society, material and spirit, which reflects the essential power of human beings, and which is pleasing or desirable”. “Hao” means “beautiful”, “Good” meaning. [2] The word “beautiful” is often used to describe abstract things like life and aspirations. Through presenting the discussion and definition of the better life by scholars at home and abroad, this paper explores the essential connotation of the better life, so as to explore the profound implication of the better life in the new era and lay a theoretical foundation for the further creation of a better life.
