DEVIC AND ASURIC FORMS OF MYSTICISM
It is the nature of Asuric religious groups to attack Devic groups, just as the Asuras ever war with the Devas. They do this by demonizing Devic religions, by pretending that the Devas are the real demons. This leads them to acts of intolerance like smashing idols, destroying temples, and killing priests under the guise that these are unholy. On the other hand, the Devas looks upon the Asuras as misguided energies and the people who follow them as misguided souls.

The Devas seek to redeem the Asuras if this is possible. The Devas do not demonize the Asuras, though they do recognize their destructive potential. Unfortunately, Devic groups are often naive in the ways of the world and may not develop the proper energy or insight to deal with the Asuras, who commonly use insincerity and deceit. In fact, human nature as its stands today all over the world is dominated by Asuric or materialistic tendencies. We can easily observe this by human behavior in all spheres of life motivated by desire, greed and ambition, which are Asuric forces.

These Asuric tendencies come out in almost any circumstance or group, particularly when power is an issue, including in the religious sphere that can offer more power than any other domain of life. The Devas are usually in an inferior position in this human world that is dominated by Asuric tendencies. Even their supporters can fall prey to these if they are not careful. Hence what is formulated along Devic lines can in time become an Asuric force. Even a religion that has started out in a Devic form can be taken over by Asuric impulses. This occurs when spirituality and religion are used to gain worldly power and prestige and the inner quest is forgotten.
