Bhagavan Said : That untutored innate faith of men is of three kinds-Sattvika, Rajasika and Tanasika. Faith constitutes a man; whatever the nature of this faith, verily he is that. Men of Sattvika worship God; those of Rajasika worship Denigods & demons while other who are of Tamsika worship the spirit of the dead & ghosts. Food also, which is liked to different men according to innate disposition of three kinds-Sattvika,Rajasika & Tanasika. Similarly sacrifice, penance and charity too are of three kinds each.

Bhagavan said : Given over to egotism, brute force, arrogance, lust and anger etc., and blaming other, they despise Me, dwelling in their own and others body. Those haters, sinful, cruel & vilest among men, I cast again & again into demoniacal wombs in this world. Falling to reach Me.Those stupid person are born life after life in demoniac womb and then verily sink to a still lower plane. Desire, anger & greed-these triple gates of hell, brings about the downfall of the soul. Therefore, one shun all these three. Free From these gates of hell,man works for his own salvation and thereby attain the supreme Goal. i e God. Discarding the saying of scripture, he who acts according to his desire, such person neither attains occult power, nor the supreme Goal, nor even happiness.

Chapter16 The Yoga of Division between the Divine & the Demoniacal Properties. Bhagavan said the Divine qualities of the person like Sublimity, forgiveness, fortitude, external purity, bearing enmity to none & absence of self esteem- these are the mark of person who is born with the divine gift. which lead to liberation. Hypocrisy, arrogance, pride and anger, sternness & ignorance too these are the marks of the person who born with demoniac properties. Which lead to bondage. Grieve not Arjuna, you are born with divine properties. Man possessing a demonic nature does not know what is right activity & what is right abstinence from activity. Hence they possess neither purity nor good conduct nor even truthfulness. They say world is without foundation, unreal & Godless, nothing else except mutual union of the male & female. Clinging to this false view does terrible deeds and are enemies of mankind. From : Shrimad Bhagawat Geeta. Wait for next post S B Geeta-58 Vinod Anand 19/04/2017 Friend,Philosopher,Guide
