Yes. The "purpose" is "Leela", the sport of Vishnu. Here is a nice book about Leela, it even comes with a "game" Board ("Game" is one of the meanings of "Leela"):
"Leela --- Game of knowledge", Author: Harish Johari. Routledge & Kegan Paul, 150 pages, 1980 - ISBN # 0 - 7100 - 0689 - 6
On Advaita one of my favorite Authors is Jaideva Singh:
Siva Sutras - The Yoga of Supreme Identity
Pratyabhijnahrdayam - The Secret of Self-recognition
Vijnanabhairava or Divine Consciousness
Also worth reading
The Siva Samhita - Sri Sat Guru Publiations, 40/5 ÂShakti N agar, D elhi, India
Âthe works of SwamiÂLakshman JeeÂ
Madame Blavaty lovedÂto use the "Monad" word to describe our origin, it can be a metaphor for the "units of divine awareness of the Absolute". In Zen they say "the is no arriving as the was no departure". So here I/we are lol!ÂÂÂ

Subject: theos-talk Advaita ...............
This I find most perfect.
God/Goood is the universal intelligent force that created everything, even itself. How could any mere human being suggest that such a force could limit itself? Not least to one organisation or religion. All `the whole of' this creation is the creator's purpose.
Religion fulfils a very human need to belong to something bigger than the illusion of the separated-individual self and an explanation of the unexplainable. Mankind instinctively knows it came from a spiritual place and it returns to a spiritual place. But mankind has forgotten how to trust instinct (hence the fall of Adam).
What the Gnostics understood was/is that God is everywhere and everything in the universe, in this eternal now. Only in this sense, is there no separation between man and God.
This Separation is our delusional illusion of reality.
The only real temple is now, complete and whole.
God is the temple and everything within it, which includes you/me/us, all moving, shifting as one.
Our true circumstance of no-duality is a hefty burden for those in love with our delusion of separation and position.
Yet even this illusion has purpose ???
