Why God Created this Universe

Query: Why God created this Universe... Can you please tell me why god created this universe?


Kaivalya Jnani:
In the sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... there is only one question... one query that is prohibited to be asked... why God Almighty created the whole Cosmos in the first place! And the reason for that is... when the whole Cosmos does not seem without a boundary... the existence of the whole Cosmos becomes questionable?


As per Advaita Vedanta... only God Almighty is the truth of life... apart from God Almighty nothing else exists in the whole of Cosmos. As per Advaita Vedanta... all is the work of Maya (veil of illusion)... a concept that confirms the existence of the whole Cosmos only in the imagination of God.

For a while think of the situation of a microbe... a bacteria living in a human body! No matter what... can the microbe bacteria ever conceive its existence in relation to the human body? Never... shall that ever be! Similarly... human beings would never be able to conceive the exact dimensions of the cosmic system!

Whatever we view... whatever we see... all is the play of the senses! Everything appears solid when perceived from senses point of view. In truth... all is gaseous formation! The whole Cosmos is built-up of... the basic building block of the Cosmos... clusters of atoms and molecules!


Every solid body... every human being is but a cluster of atoms and molecules! In the circumstances... the Advaita Vedanta and the doctrine of Maya (veil of illusion) definitely holds good.

However... the creation of the Cosmos is a fact of life. But why God Almighty creates the Cosmos is unknown... for the prime reason that Cosmos seems without a boundary! If we presume... the entire Cosmos having a boundary... then what beyond!

I have often observed on the Internet people putting their queries... who created God. If something exists... it must have been created by someone! If god created the present Cosmos... then who created God? Logistically on the earthly domain... the query is right... but on the spiritual plane everything falls flat! Why?


The moment human beings reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... the play of God Almighty... the entire cosmic system becomes visible! It is a certain fact of life... that the cluster of all purified souls atmans in the Cosmos... at the point of formation of the Cosmos... when it explodes with a big bang... the mighty Cosmos gets created!

This cluster of all purified souls atmans in the Cosmos... the size of half a thumb as detailed in the sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is nothing but God Almighty himself. This unimaginable power... after the dissolution of the old Cosmos... unable to retain itself for long in its prime pure state... again explodes with a big bang... and starts a new journey of life... a new cosmos!

The creation of the new cosmos is automatic. The moment complete dissolution (termed Pralaya in Hinduism) of the old Cosmos occurs and all souls atmans reach their 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in the cosmic life cycle... the total cluster of all purified souls atmans in the Cosmos (devoid of all dross impurities within) reduces to the size of half a thumb!


Without further questioning the entity of God... let us remain contented to the fact that as human beings... our goal of life is reaching the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) at the earliest... being the prime requisite for the soul atman within!

It is our soul atman that is on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years). Starting from the stage of amoeba (single cell formation)... the first manifestation in the cosmic life cycle... the soul atman moves ahead and further evolves into insect life, plant life, animal life and finally the form of human beings!

Before reaching the stage of human life... the soul atman within has already crossed a total of 7.3 million manifestations in the insect, plant and animal life! In the human form alone we have a total of 1.1 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 12.4 million earthly years) to reach the stage of enlightenment and salvation.

Having gained enlightenment... the liberated soul atman gains entry into the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikunth in Hinduism)! The kingdom of God Vaikunth is a point of no return. The purified soul atman having reached the end of cosmic life need not manifest a body again! All karma dissolving forever... the soul atman regains its prime pristine original pure form.

As long as the dross impurities remained in the soul atman... it needed to manifest its karma through a chain of bodies. Having regained absolute purity... the need to manifest a body... the need to manifest karma ceases to exist!


What can be more pacifying to a gullible human being... the human form... the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle! It is only as a human being... the soul atman within regains its original pure pristine form... the last stage in the cosmic life cycle... the 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment and salvation.

To sum up... let us concentrate all our energies towards the only goal of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings reach the stage of enlightenment and finally salvation. Mahavira did so... and so did Gautama Buddha! Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed... both traveled the same path.

We do not know what we shall be in the next manifestation... why not travel the spiritual path now!
