If you are against God, obviously you are working for the devil. Do you agree or disagree? Why?




It’s an imposition on God to suggest He needs a counterpart in the form of evil. That would make God dependent on Satan, in order to be good. In that case, God is dualistic, and that is clearly a limited, primitive understanding of God.


In the Vedic tradition, which is the original and most ancient version of God, God is presented as absolute and transcendental. That God is absolute, means He is absolutely good. Whatever God does, it’s good.


For instance, when Krishna calls young, married girls to the forest in the dead of night, to seduce them - from our mundane point of view it may be considered unethical, even evil, but since it’s God’s pastimes, it’s absolutely good.


So God is transcendental, meaning that He is beyond the dualism of the material world. God is beyond good and evil.


The Vaishnava religion is the only religion in the world, which has complete information on God - who God is, what He looks like, what His activities are, why and how He created the world, who and what the soul is, and the meaning and purpose of all things. Who would reject such sublime and ancient knowledge, unless one is determined to remove God from his world-view?


Other religions are baffled when it comes to important questions of existence, first and foremost the theodisé question - the question of how evil entered the world - why does an almighty, benevolent God allow evil in the world? The Church has invented Satan to explain that, but that’s an inferior explanation. In fact, it’s a non-explanation.


What the Church does, is making God dualistic. God, in order to be good, requires evil. In this way, they make God dependent on Satan. Good can only be understood in terms of its opposite - evil.


The Vedic sages, however, solved this problem already thousands of years before the advent of Christ. They teach us that the Absolute Truth is transcendental, ei. beyond good and evil.


There are no questions, be they philosophical, existential, religious, social, or theological, that are not answered in depth in the Vedic tradition. But who bothers to take advantage of this ancient system of knowledge? Practically no one. That's why Krishna in Bhagavad Gita calls this knowledge the most secret of secrets. It's hidden in plain sight. Only our own mental conditioning and opposition to information about the Absolute Truth, prevents us from seeing it.


Krishna says:


Now hear, O son of Prtha, how by practicing yoga in full consciousness of Me, with mind attached to Me, you can know Me in full, free from doubt.


I shall now declare unto you in full this knowledge, both phenomenal and numinous. This being known, nothing further shall remain for you to know.


Out of many thousands among men, one may endeavor for perfection, and of those who have achieved perfection, hardly one knows Me in truth.


Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intelligence and false ego -- all together these eight constitute My separated material energies.


Besides these, O mighty-armed Arjuna, there is another, superior energy of Mine, which comprises the living entities who are exploiting the resources of this material, inferior nature.


All created beings have their source in these two natures. Of all that is material and all that is spiritual in this world, know for certain that I am both the origin and the dissolution.


O conqueror of wealth, there is no truth superior to Me. Everything rests upon Me, as pearls are strung on a thread. --Bhagavad Gita 7.1-7


This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of religion. It is everlasting, and it is joyfully performed. (Bg. 9.2)
