“Why has God created the world.”

A. Ask God why He has created this world! Attain wisdom of the Self. Then you will know why God created the world. You cannot understand it with the intellect. You can understand it only with intuition. For the sake of sport, God created the world. Lokavattu Lila Kaivalyam. Creation of the world has a purpose. Just as we cannot have a sun without rays, similarly, we cannot have God without the world process. The world is like His rays. It is Svabhava, Nature. Just as a juggler to produce something and then make it disappear, so also, God produces this world and makes it disappear. God is omnipotent. To ask why He created the world is an Ati-prasna, a transcendental question. We will be only wasting time by discussing it using words. Before asking about the world, ask about yourself. Know who you are. Then you will know everything.
