|Chapter 16||The Divine and the Demoniac Natures Defined||Verse 5|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna now discloses the results of first the divine nature which qualifies for higher spiritual knowledge leading to moksa or liberation from material existence and secondly He discloses the demoniac nature which disqualifies one from moksa and insures enslavement in samsara the perpetual cycle of birth and death. Lord Krishna perceiving that His devotee was distraught by the idea that he may not be a fit aspirant for moksa and hence subject to samsara, the Supreme Lord consoles him with the words ma sucah meaning not to worry, assuring him that he is definitely of the divine nature.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna encourages His devotee to grieve not or be despondent at the thought that he may not be qualified enough, for without a doubt he is born of the divine nature.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna explains the opposing results of the divine nature and the demoniac nature. The divine nature which follows the ordinances and injunctions of the Vedic scriptures has been regarded from time immemorial by self-realised sages and rishis as conducive to moksa or liberation from material existence due to spiritual knowledge and attaining communion with the Supreme Lord. The demoniac nature leads one to act contrarily to the ordinances and injunctions of the Vedic scriptures and hence are conducive to enslavement in samsara the perpetual cycle of birth and death and bondage in material existence taking birth each time in lower and more degraded life forms. Seeing despondency on His devotees face, Lord Krishna assures him not to worry for he is without a doubt born of the divine nature.
