God is perfect, world imperfect ... why ?

Devotee: God is perfect. Why did He create the world imperfect? The work shares the nature of the author. But here it is not so.

Maharshi: Who is it that raises the question?
D.: I - the individual.

Are you apart from God that you ask this question?

So long as you consider yourself the body you see the world as external. The imperfections appear to you. God is perfection. His work also is perfection. But you see it as imperfection because of your wrong identification.
