यदा सत्त्वे प्रवृद्धे तु प्रलयं याति देहभृत्।
।।14.14।। जब यह जीव (देहभृत्) सत्त्वगुण की प्रवृद्धि में मृत्यु को प्राप्त होता है? तब उत्तम कर्म करने वालों के निर्मल अर्थात् स्वर्गादि लोकों को प्राप्त होता है।।
Lord Krishna explains that when the jiva or embodied being is in sattva guna or mode of goodness at the time of death then numerous blessed regions are reached where the knowers of atma tattva or knowledge of the immortal soul are residing. The word amalan means pure, exempt from blemish, denoting devoid of ignorance. The understanding is that the fate of a jiva who dies under the influence of sattva guna would be so beneficial that it would predetermine that the next birth would take place in the enviornment of pious and holy people that have realised atma tattva and so combined with an inner impulse to pursue this way of life and with opportunity in abundance one would continue in sattva guna purifying ones existence by performing spiritual activities until one achieves perfection.
