I heard an audio, but not sure who the speaker was. He mentioned, the asuras once resided in their own universe, then later in planets, later in the same planet as humans, then in the same family and eventually the asura lives within the person. My question is, is there such a description in the vedic text and if so, what is the reference?
What is the reference ?
I am not aware of any verse regarding this. But this is a verifiable observation.
Demons & devotees (demigods) are given different planetary systems. In Satya yuga the lived in their respective planetary systems. Every time demons tried to occupy like Hiranyakasipu or Bali Maharaja, Sri Vishnu intervened & set things right. Hiranyakasipu, Hiranyaksa were killed, Bali Maharaj was sent to his planet.
In Treta yuga, demons occupied lanka, where as devotees like vanaras, bears etc were in mainland (Bharata varsha) but in same planetary system. So Sri Rama created a bridge across ocean and killed Ravana
In Dwapara yuga, demons and devotees appeared in same family like kauravas & pandavas, Kamsa & Krsna . Sri Krsna either Himself or by His devotees arranged for demons to be killed even though they were family members.
In Kali yuga they demoniac and divine mentalities reside in same persons. If demons are to be killed, nobody will remain on planet earth. Hence Sri Krsna has appeared as His holy name and Sri Chaitanya appeared to distribute holy name. Holy name is available to anyone and everyone in Kali yuga. Only Holy name can destroy the demoniac mentalities present within the people. If people are not willing to give-up their demoniac tendencies then Sri Krsna will appear as Sri Kalki in end of Kali-yuga and wipe them.
