This world is mortal. One who takes birth, have to die one day and that is the ultimate truth and inevitable fact of this world. Nothing exists in this world permanently. One has to leave this world, even if he wishes not to. No magic can ever actually help a person to stay forever being immortal. Everyone has their limited life periods. They will be gone after completing them. No matter how great the one is or how powerful one is, all have to die one day.
What is the purpose of this world? Why has God created it? And if god has created it then everything happening is HIS wish. So why all this is going on??? Why few people love god and have faith in him and why others give all kinds of logic’s that they are born in this world and doing (karma for self) what has God made them for! Why has God created it?” It is something that bewilders many people. The key to understanding the purpose of the world is that God, Krishna, has given us a limited amount of independence. He lets us act as we like. But at the same time we are responsible for our activities. So in actuality, although the hand of God is behind the creation of this world, it is actually created by us, not God.
This material world is created to give us, the souls who want to be happy independently from God, a place to live. Here in the material world our intelligence is covered by “maya,” illusion, and we are trying to become the lord and master of the world. We are forgetful of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and instead of surrendering to Him and serving Him we are trying to get others to surrender to us and serve us. We want to be God. We want to be the master. But actually we cannot be God, we are constitutionally very small and God, Krishna, is very great. This is eternally true. God is always God and we are always servants of God.
But because we want to be God, God has created this material world to allow us to “play God.” So, covered by maya, we are thinking we are the Lord and master of this world. So this material world is created by God to enable us to fulfill our desire to “play God.” So this world is created by OUR desire NOT God’s desire.
God is not forcing us to think in a particular way. We have a little independence and if we choose to try and be happy separate from God there has to be somewhere for us to go. There is no question of being separate from God in the Kingdom of God, the Spiritual World, so Krishna, God has created this material kingdom so we can become the King here…
But we cannot be happy separate from God. Our constitutional, natural position is to serve God. So even though there seems to be so many pleasurable things in the material world, none of them are truly satisfying. This is because we are spiritual by nature therefore no material pleasure can actually satisfy us.
So there is actually no real pleasure in this material world at all. The actual pleasure is in the spiritual world. Krishna confirms in the Bhagavad-Gita (8.16) that this world is a place of misery where repeated birth and death are going on:
punar avartino ‘rjuna
mam upetya tu kaunteya
punar janma na vidyate
“From the highest planet in the material world down to the lowest, all are places of misery wherein repeated birth and death take place. But one, who attains to My abode, O son of Kunti, never takes birth again.”
