It's said in Gita that we are part and parcel of the supreme soul and after death, a few do merge with the Supersoul i.e. complete freedom from the cycle of birth and death which depends on a lot of factors. Why were the souls created in the first place then? I have heard some people saying that Lord was getting bored and so he created human beings but I personally don't support this theory since I feel Lord is complete and he is perfect so he does not need anyone for his entertainment. That theory implies that Lord was lacking something which is completely untrue. So why did the Lord create human's when he was not feeling lonely? Also, why did the lord not remained as one soul and why did he distribute his souls in all of us? Like why were we created in the first place? The lord could have remained as one soul and not made all of us.
Lord created the earth and other planets and sent us here on earth and did all the necessary arrangements for us since we all are his children. But if the lord did not divide his soul into several parts there would have been no human beings and other living beings. There was no need to create the earth and other planets then. Why did the lord create us then?
I know this is a question which is very confusing and the majority does not know the real reason behind it. Please enlighten me regarding the same.
