Paramahansa Yogananda and Self-Realization Fellowship

Why God Permits Evil: and How to Rise Above It

One of the titles in the "How-to-Live" book series from Self-Realization Fellowship—a topic-driven line of books designed to address specific spiritual topics of interest and import. As the title suggests, Yogananda explains through specific examples and easily understood analogies why evil exits, and its role in the dualistic nature of Creation; there could be no light without shadow, no understanding of good without evil. He further describes how the dark force often plays a necessary role in our spiritual evolution—causing us to turn our attention away from material pursuits and worldly pleasures to the pursuit of Truth, and a deeper personal relationship with God. Once we understand Yogananda's message, and incorporate it into our daily lives, we can begin to see the world as God does—as a cosmic motion picture—and stand unshaken even amidst our most turbulent and trying times.
