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.
