oneness of good and evil ［善悪不二］ ( zen’aku-funi): Also, non-duality of good and evil. The principle that good and evil are not separate and distinct, but are inherent in all phenomena. “Good” in Buddhism means that which benefits oneself and others, while “evil” means that which harms oneself and others. Good and evil are not two mutually exclusive entities but are two different functions of life. The principle of three thousand realms in a single moment of life elucidates that all possible conditions or states of existence reside within life at each moment. Life therefore simultaneously possesses the potential for both good and evil, and even when manifesting one, it is never devoid of the potential for the other.
