They go as far as Satya-loka according to the amount of sattva. Those in rajas remain in the earthly planets in the world of humans. They take on various human forms according to the amount of rajas. Those situated in tamas go downwards to lower species. They attain birth as animals, birds and non-moving entities according to the amount of tamas.
