DEVIC AND ASURIC FORMS OF MYSTICISM
Yet there are also priests or mystics who may not be warriors themselves but who encourage aggressive attitudes. They may work, either on a spiritual or intellectual level, to promote a militant agenda. These mystics may perform mantras, prayers or rituals to guarantee the victory of their faith, without themselves actually entering into battle.

However not all militant mysticism is objectionable. If it is done as a defensive measure there is nothing necessarily wrong with it. If someone wrongfully attacks us we should call upon our God to help guide and defend us. It could be argued that Hindus, who have not fared well in defending themselves in recent centuries, would benefit by stressing a more militant or Kshatriya mysticism, such as is found in the Vedas or Mahabharata.

However if militant mysticism becomes a means of aggression, or of enforcing a religious belief, then it becomes Asuric in its nature. There are subtle negative forces, which delight in harm and destruction, that can be brought into the human realm. Asuric mysticism is therefore primarily a form of false Kshatriya mysticism. But it can be a distortion of priestly mysticism as well, if the priests are motivated by aggression.
