TRANSLATIONÇré Maitreya said:The demigods, the inhabitants of the higher planets, were freed fromall fear upon hearing the cause of the darkness explained by Brahmä, who was born fromViñëu. Thus they all returned to their respective planets.PURPORT

element exists also in the demigods. On every planet, even in the higher planetarysystems, including the moon and the sun, as well as on this earth, the same principles of animal life exist. Otherwise, why are the demigods also afraid of the darkness? Thedifference between the demigods and ordinary human beings is that the demigodsapproach authority, whereas the inhabitants of this earth defy authority. If people wouldonly approach the authority, then every adverse condition in this universe could berectified. Arjuna was also disturbed on the Battlefield of Kurukñetra, but he approachedthe authority, Kåñëa, and his problem was solved. The conclusive instruction of thisincident is that we may be disturbed by some material condition, but if we approach theauthority who can actually explain the matter, then our problem is solved. The demigodsapproached Brahmä for the meaning of the disturbance, and after hearing from himthey were satisfied and returned home peacefully.
