Universe is based on duality


Questioner: Why do forces of evil predominate over forces of virtue?

Baba: It is all in the scope of universal law. The suffering that appears so grave is necessary for happiness, just as binding is necessary to experience freedom. Unless evil temporarily triumphs, happiness cannot be experienced. This universe is based on duality. Binding and freedom, good and bad, evil and virtue, are interdependent. If only one aspect existed, there would be no interest or meaning in life. For the attainment of ultimate freedom and happiness, temporary victory of evil over virtue is necessary.
