[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message - Gita 16-7


Sixteenth Chapter


pravṛttiṁ ca nivṛttiṁ ca janā na vidurāsurāḥ
na śaucaṁ nāpi cācāro na satyaṁ teṣu vidyate
People of demoniacal nature do not know what to do (Pravṛtti) and what to refrain from (Nivṛtti). They have neither outer purity, nor good conduct and nor do they follow the truth.
The men endowed with demoniacal nature think only for their own comfort and pleasure, they see their own self-interest. They are inclined to perform only those activities which provide them comfort and happiness and they do not engage in any activity which may give them pain, and which does not serve their self-interest. In fact the scripture is the only authority in determining what ought to be done and what ought not to be done (Gītā 16/24); but because of deep attachment with their bodies and life-breaths, the men of demoniacal nature do not follow the injunctions of the scriptures in determining what should be done and what should not to be done. Because of their demoniacal nature they do not even listen to the command of the scripture and even if they listen to it, they cannot understand it. If sometimes they happen to listen to the words of scripture from saints, they do not accept.
