I see tiqun hammidos, but nothing about ameilus in Even Sheleimah until
paragrpah 39.

The Gra opens by telling you "All of Avodas Hashem rests on Tiqun haMiddos"
and only mentions being oseiq baTorah as a way to put the yh"r is snooze

In other words... I would have said that to the Gra, the purpose of life
and the Torah is Tiqon haMiddos, and ameilus is a means to that end.

Tir'u baTov!
