Paramatma and Jeevatma live happily in the Vaikuntha Loka. Jeevatma is doing his karma by praying to Paramatma. Paramatma is doing his Karma by bestowing blessing on his followers.

Now my question is: If everything was so fine in Vaikuntha Loka, then why did Paramatma created the human body which is made up of filth and is the cause of suffering?

  • There was never a starting point for Samsara. Samsara has existed for all eternity. Every Jiva has had infinitely many past births going infinitely far back in time. – Keshav Srinivasan Oct 10 '17 at 14:52

    The only people who believe that the Jiva was in Vaikuntha before it entered Samsara are ISKCON people, who believe in a Vedantic philosophy called Achintya Bheda Abheda, not Dvaita. – Keshav Srinivasan Oct 10 '17 at 14:55

    We existed before this period and we will exist after this period.("Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.") But why did God chose to exist on Earth which is the cause of suffering? Why are not we all in the Vaikuntha already? – Dheeraj Verma Oct 10 '17 at 15:01
  • "Why are not we all in the Vaikuntha already?" To live with God in his dhaam, one has to proof himself whether he/she is worthy of living in Vaikuntha or not. To check if you are worthy or not, God first send everyone on Earth. And what ever we do on Earth, by those acts of our God judge us and decides whether we are worthy of Vaikuntha or not. By seeing our all karma of our life God decides we will go to Heaven or Hell or Vaikuntha. No one can go Vaikuntha directly without proving himself worthy Because there is no shortcut of attaining Lord Vishnu. – Rishabh Oct 10 '17 at 16:18
  • OK. How can I prove myself worthy ? – Dheeraj Verma Oct 10 '17 at 16:28
