Spirit Soul: Individuality of the Soul

                                                                  Q. What does separated expansion actually mean, in terms of our relationship with Krishna?

                                                                  'Separated' refers to our existence as eternally separate entities with individual identity, having minute freewill. Further, unlike the integrated expansions, viz. the Vishnu-tattva forms, the tiny living entities are prone to turn toward illusory energy and become separated from Krishna's association, by improper use of their freewill -- the same idea as conveyed by the term 'marginal energy'.

                                                                  Q. I have a question related to digest 144. If the Supreme Lord can expand himself into the tiny souls with separate individualities for His enjoyment, why do they have to be covered by the illusory energy? Does the covering not create a virtual entity with the particle of spirit being forgetful of its oneness with the Supreme in order for the living entity to display a separate individuality?
