According to the philosophical notion of yin and yang, all phenomena exist in a relative sense of complementarity. All affairs in the universe are realized and manifested through the forms of yin and yang. Examples of yin and yang include heaven and earth, the sun and moon, humans and deities, men and women, and inside and outside. According to the principle of yin and yang, as the universe changes, human beings can come to exist in harmony with deities.
Virtuous Concordance of Yin and Yang
This refers to the harmonious integration of the virtues of Yin and Yang in order to bring about the ideal relations among all beings or existent things in the universe.
All things in the universe form pairs because they always exist in relationships of relativity; each with its own counterpart. That is what we use the term ‘yin and yang.’ Some examples of this include, light and darkness, heaven and earth, divine beings and human beings, and other such complementary polarities.However, the Former World was a world of oppressed yin and revered yang wherein yin and yang had fallen into a biased and conflicted relationship with one another. Therefore, this tenet is undertaken to create concordance and harmony between yin and yang while also preventing them from bias or conflict against one another.
For instance, all social or human relations such as those between nation and individual, parent and child, and husband and wife are necessarily relationshipscharacterized by mutual dependence. Yet, these relationships are often subject to conflict and disharmony. Therefore, the ‘Virtuous Concordance of Yin and Yang’, in terms of social or human relations, refers the resolution of these conflicts and the creation of a harmonious state wherein human beings collaborate and help one another.
