Ramana Maharshi says Good always implies bad also; they always co-exist

So Vishnu awakened Prahlada, blessing him with eternal life and jivanmukti. Deva-asura fight was resumed and the old order of things was restored so that the universe continues in its eternal nature.

Devotee:

How could God Himself wake up the asura element and bring about constant warfare? Is not Pure Goodness the nature of God?

Bhagavan:

Goodness is only relative. Good always implies bad also; they always co-exist. The one is the obverse of the other.
