Taoism

Taoism is closely associated with the concept of Yin and Yang, which represents the dualistic nature of the universe. Yin is often associated with qualities like passivity, darkness, and receptivity, while Yang is associated with qualities like activity, light, and assertiveness. Both are necessary and interconnected. In Taoism, there is a recognition that good and evil are relative and interconnected concepts, and one cannot exist without the other.

Buddhism

Central to Buddhism is the recognition of suffering (dukkha) as a fundamental aspect of human existence. Buddhism does not necessarily frame suffering as "evil," but it acknowledges that suffering arises from attachment, desire, and ignorance. The cessation of suffering is a primary goal in Buddhism.

Buddhism introduces the concept of karma, which is the law of cause and effect. Actions have consequences, and positive actions (good karma) lead to positive outcomes, while negative actions (bad karma) lead to negative outcomes. Karma is not a judgment of good or evil but rather a principle of cause and effect.
