BG Chap 14 - Destinations of those fixed in various modes

Previously the results attained by those situated in a particular mode at the time of death were described. Now the results of those fixed in various modes in terms of higher, middle and lower destinations are described. Those situated in sattva go to higher planets. 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.
