04.23-24

English:
Lokāntik beings live around Brahmalok. They are known as Sāraswat, Aditya, Vahni, Arun, Gardatoy, Tushit, Avyābādh, Marut and Arishta.

The aura of Vaimānik beings in first two realms is yellow; it is lotus-red in third to fifth realms and white in the remaining realms. The realms below Graiveyak Among the celestial beings there are Lokāntik beings that live around Brahmalok (fifth level). Four groups of them live in four straight directions, four in the slanting directions and one in the middle of Brahmalok. There are thus nine groups known as Sāraswat (eloquent), Adītya (sun), Vahni (fire), Arun (dawn), Gardatoy (splashing), Tushit (gratified), Avyābādh (unimpeded), Marut (wind) and Arishta (beyond hurt). They approach the Lords prior to their renunciation and point out that it is the time to renounce the worldly life. The Lokāntik beings do not have sexual inclination and are therefore termed as Devarshi. They are destined to come to the end of the worldly life very shortly.
