Why should one choose to do good over evil? Maybe your evil is my good and your good is my evil? There is no ultimate good or evil, so whats the reason to do "good" deeds then?

All ways lead to God, if you deny this you deny the oneness of God and the Unity of God. So doing "evil" should be just as valid as doing "Good"?

    Because the "ultimate" is a state to be reached through industry and penance. Until that state is reached, good and evil definitely exist. Besides, the ends don't justify the means. – user1195 Jul 8 '17 at 2:35
  • But if you reach the ultimate. Still what you do will be either good or evil in the eyes of a person that has not reached that state. When one is free from all labels, why can such a person commit evil without that being evil, but when someone that hasn't reach that state does it is considered evil and "punished" by karma. This is very weird.... – Prefer anonymous Jul 8 '17 at 9:50
  • Person who has reached that state do not perform evil. Every avatara adhered to dharma in spite of hardships. – user1195 Jul 8 '17 at 13:32
  • But that's the thing. He could do it if he wants to, so why should we say he does not perform evil. He could perform it in such a state also if he so chooses. – Prefer anonymous Jul 9 '17 at 0:48
