Dislocating Duality

"Hinduism has always acknowledged the existence of opposites (and reconciled them): pain and pleasure, success and failure, creation and destruction, life and death, are all the manifestations of the duality inherent in human existence. These pairings are not contradictory but complimentary; they are aspects of the same overarching reality. So also with the secular and the sacred: a Hindu’s life must involve both."
