Radhanath Swami resolves the controversy of good and evil

18-Good-EvilGod has created the spirit soul, God has created all the species of life, God has created the laws of nature and the reactions, but because we have free will, man is the cause of evil. God simply gives. He is the cause that facilitates us to choose either good or evil. There is no darkness in the sun. If you look towards God, you will see there is only light. However, if you look away from God, then you are going to see darkness caused by your own shadow. Man creates evil, and evil creates sufferings.

    Very good article. God has freewill to everyone to choose between good & evil. Man creates evil, evil causes suffering & then man blames that God is causing him to suffer.

  • We can not blame anybody for our fall down.

    Practical analogy of Sun and darkness thank you Radhanath Swami for solving the doubts about what is good and what is evil.

  • Kalpana Kulkarni

    True! We have to understand that we have the free will to choose between right and wrong and our reactions will be based on our actions.

  • Y. Raja Shekar

    Many people argue that if God is the source of every thing then the evil also is created by Him. This article of HH Radhanath Swami clears up all these doubts. Due to the absence of light and because we have chosen to turn away from light, we are experiencing the darkness. Similarly we have chosen to turn away from Good which is the only source of God, we are faced with evil and subsequent sufferings.
