I think part of the meaning is to exept that we live in a imperfect world, and to exererize love and tolerance.

Everything that happens iss very random but we come up with religious ideas to fill the gaps in our pattern seeking brains. We want to believe that the Japanese and Haitians were collecting baaaad karma, that god is busy clicking on buttons that make volcanoes go wild, and that the dinosaurs were sinful.

That said, there is 'meaning' on a personal level. Life is what you make of it. Existence is already amazing enough, there is no need for a higher order of things who dictate you what to do and how to behave. These beliefs in 'Order' can create unhappiness and unrealistic expectations in people.
