Question: The Purpose of Creation

The only question that bothers me is the purpose for creation. If the individual soul is always a part of the Supreme Soul, the Paramatma, then why was it detached from the Paramatma to experience an isolated existence?

Answer: To Expand the Ocean of Love

The Supreme Soul, the Paramatma, is emanating so many individual atmas or souls from Himself for the process of enjoying a unique loving relationship with each and every one of them. Since the Supreme Soul is atmarama or self-enjoyer He is not required to do this. But since He is fully powerful and independent He is completely free to do anything and everything according to His own desires. Out of His own free will He chooses to have our association rather than spending his existence in solitude. The Paramatma's desire is to keep us with Him in the sweet happiness of eternal loving relationship. But out of our foolish misuse of our minute independence we have cast ourselves into the ocean isolation known as the material world.Therefore Lord Sri Krishna, the original form of the Paramatma, repeatedly comes to this material world to implore us to come back to our original, all blissful existence in the spiritual world in a loving relationship with Him.
