problem is that the Devic religions in humanity, mainly Hinduism and
Buddhism, have become passive and resigned, lacking in passion and
human interest. This makes the emotional human being vulnerable to
Asuric influences. Devic religions in their otherworldliness fail to
counter conversion efforts by Asuric groups and do not work hard
enough to attract people into their ranks.
Hence at this stage in humanity
Asuric religious influences prevail, not only because of their
inherent aggression but because of the present passivity of Devic
Dharmas. It is important for Devic groups to look back to the older
Vedic teaching that contains an integral Dharma of both knowledge
and work (vidya and karma) through which the Divine force can remain
supreme both in the outer and inner worlds.
Therefore, Devic forces should not
simply label Asuric forces as negative. Nor should they passively
blame the Asuras for the problems in the world as if they were no
more than victims (hardly a Devic attitude we should note). Only
when the Deva Shakti is weak can the Asura Shakti come forth. The
Devas must arouse themselves to counter the influence of the Asuras.
This requires not only that they become more active but that they
seek a higher inspiration and zeal. They must unite with the Divine
Lord and Protector, Vishnu, and seek a new avatara, or descent of
Divine grace to lead them into the inevitable battle.
