04.04-05

English:

There are positions like Indra, Sāmānik, Trāyatrinsh, Pārishadya, Ātmaraksha, Lokpāl, Anik, Prakirnak, Ābhiyogya and Kilvishik. There are no Trāyatrinsh and Lokpāl amongst Vyantara and Jyotishka types.

There is a sort of hierarchy amongst the cosmic beings comparable to that prevailing in the human society. They have ten cadres. The chief is called Indra; co-chiefs occupying the positions comparable to peers are called Sāmānik; those occupying the positions of ministers or priests are called Trāyastrinsh; those who act as counselors are called Pārishadya; those who work as bodyguards are called Atmaraksha; those concerned with defending the borders are known as Lokapāl; those belonging to the fighting cadre are known as Anik; those who are like ordinary citizens are known as Prakirnak; those who serve as attendants are called Abhiyogya and those, who occupy the lowest position are known as Kilvishak. Vyantar and Jyotishka types do not have the ministerial and border defending cadres. Their hierarchy therefore consists of eight cadres
