I understand you better now.
Let me explain from the Western viewpoint.
From Plato on, the Greek philosophers tended to agree that 'it is in the nature of the good to communicate itself'.
Thus God caused creation, not for His entertainment, but from His abundance, the excess of His goodness.
No other reason.
Why? God is Undifferentiated. He does not need difference.
Indeed, but God has no need of that love, He is all that He is and needs nothing.
God is Bliss.
As you say, God enjoys bliss before creatioon existed. Creation aims to participate in that Divine Bliss – there is no variety of bliss, there is only variety of creatures that enjoy bliss, but the bliss they enjoy is divine and is their attachment, their union, their participation in the bliss of God.
For God there is no variety – for creatures there is because their abilities to experience God differ.
I would say this applies to us, not to God.
We can say that though He was fully happy, He wanted enjoy this variety of happiness. Same point is explained in the Brahma Sutra (Lokavattu lilaakaivalyam
). The entire world acts like filling material only and the real spark is that single blessed divine soul only.
If you understand the value of this variety of bliss, you will not misunderstand God and the purpose of His creation.
You can analyze this topic from your side also. If creation is not done by God, can you enjoy such bliss from another soul? Why don’t you think the importance of this creation from your side also? When suffering comes, you say that you have to suffer in this creation, which was created by God for His entertainment. You say “Shall I suffer for the sake of the entertainment of God?”
Parabrahman or unimaginable God wanted to create the world with souls for His entertainment, in which love and devotion with the souls is the essence for which meditation and worship are essential. Anticipating all this in the future creation, even before creating the creation, the unimaginable God created a little space called ‘Paramavyoma
’ and a little quantity of inert energy, with which both body and soul of the first energetic form were prepared.
This is the first energetic being created by Parabrahman even before creating this entire universe. Since Parabrahman is unimaginable and can’t be even meditated (not to speak of worship), Parabrahman created the first energetic being occupying some space for the sake of worship of the future souls. It means, Parabrahman created space, energetic soul or awareness and energetic body in the beginning.
