|Chapter 14||The Three Qualities of Material Nature||Verse 15|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Continuing Lord Krishna explains the result of raja guna or mode of passion being prredominant at the time of death is that the jiva or embodied being is born into families that are are involved in vigorous activity, Likewise the result of tama guna or mode of ignorance being predominant at the moment of death then the jiva is born in the wombs of irrational species as animals.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Now Lord Krishna describes that when a jiva or embodied being dies while in raja guna or the mode of passion one takes birth among those who perform activities out of desire for rewards and having been born as such will endeavour mightily to accomplish works that would be rewarded by immense wealth and power even up unto the heavenly spheres. Similarly if one dies while under the influnce of tama guna or the mode of ignorance then such jivas will be born from the wombs of animals such as pigs and dogs where one would be completely incapacitated to perform any activity that would give any spiritual benefit.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna states that if death comes upon a jiva or embodied being while predisposed to raja guna or the mode of passion then one takes birth next from those who are obsessed to perform actions in anticipation of rewards . Also a jiva dying while under the influence of tama guna or mode of ignorance is forced to take birth as an animal in the next life.
