|Chapter 14||The Three Qualities of Material Nature||Verse 14|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna explains the result of sattva guna or mode of goodness being predominant at the time of death is that the jiva or embodied being will reach the pure, luminous higher realms of those who worship the highest demigods such as Hiranyagarbha.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna explains that when the jiva or embodied being is in sattva guna or mode of goodness at the time of death then numerous blessed regions are reached where the knowers of atma tattva or knowledge of the immortal soul are residing. The word amalan means pure, exempt from blemish, denoting devoid of ignorance. The understanding is that the fate of a jiva who dies under the influence of sattva guna would be so beneficial that it would predetermine that the next birth would take place in the enviornment of pious and holy people that have realised atma tattva and so combined with an inner impulse to pursue this way of life and with opportunity in abundance one would continue in sattva guna purifying one's existence by performing spiritual activities until one achieves perfection.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Now Lord Krishna explains that a jiva or embodied being when situated in sattva guna or mode of goodness at the moment of death reaches the pure unblemished association of the spiritually perfected in the higher heavenly planets up to the planet of Brahma which is where the virtuous and pious reside.
