In the Vedic Hindu tradition, Brahman is the ultimate cosmic reality. Brahman can be understood as the supreme deity, the totality of all existence, and/or the Creator. The soul that has found Brahman has experienced the ultimate truth. Therefore, human concepts such as good and evil no longer have meaning. Good and evil are as concepts that can help an individual to move toward enlightenment. Yet the concepts themselves are not real. They are social constructs with limited value. When a soul has found Brahman -- the ultimate truth -- that soul no longer has need for any human concept.
