DEVIC AND ASURIC FORMS OF MYSTICISM
The Gods also can become too otherworldly in their views and shirk their responsibility to the creation, which affords a vacuum that the Asuras come in to fill. When the Gods hold to knowledge (vidya) alone and give up action (karma), this allows the Asuras to enter into the world.

The Asuras are present in the cosmic order to keep both the Devas and humans vigilant and active in their higher evolution. Otherwise they may become content to stay at a particular level and cease to grow. For this reason various Gods and sages have at times protected the Asuras from being totally destroyed by the Gods, or even incited the Asuras to become more active.

Asuric religions similarly have great passion, but this passion is misplaced or misguided. It is a power of the emotional ego, tinged with exclusivism and intolerance. The Gods can only overcome the Asuras if they create a stronger energy or passion but of a divine or non-egoistic nature, which requires considerable effort or tapas. Only a Divine passion or sattvic rajas to overcome the undivine or tamasic rajas of the Asuras. The aggression of Asuric religions and the hypnotic appeal of Asuric mysticism can only be countered by a greater zeal by the Gods and Devic religions.
