Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
But, it is not necessary that the former is always honoured, while the latter always dishonoured. So far as the second type of actions, are concerned, they always create, either desirable or undesirable circumstances.
In the scriptures, it is mentioned that virtuous actions lead a being to heaven, evil actions to hell, while an equality of virtuous and evil actions, leads him to human life. It shows, that no man, can be either wholly virtuous or wholly evil. Out of those virtuous and evil actions also, in a certain field, virtues may be more, while in othei spheres evils may be more. Similar is the division of modes. Those who have predominance of the mode of goodness, go to higher regions, those, who have predominance of the mode of passion, go to the middle regions, viz., region of men, while those having dominance of the mode of ignorance, go to the lower regions. Out of those going to a region, they are again divided into different categories, according to their qualities.
- As in an examination an examinee may obtain poorer marks in a certain subject and better marks in other subjects. But the result is declared on the base of the aggregate marks. Similarly a man's virtuous actions may be more in one sphere while evil actions may be more in other sphere. It is the aggregate of the twn which decides his birth. If the virtues and evils of different persons are equal in different spheres, they should receive happy and. sad circumstances equally. But it does not generally happen. Similar is the case with the modes of nature as that of Sanviks etc.
