In Bhagwat Gita Lord says :

I am in everyone’s heart as the Supersoul. As soon as one desires to worship some deity, I make his faith steady so that he can devote himself to that particular deity.

Suppose I want to worship Ravana or Pret or Pisach then will Krishna make my faith steady in those demonic forces ?

If yes then is there any morality innate to Lord Krishna?

I think there is no morality innate to Lord Krishna ( I don't want to hurt any sentiments. I have high regards for the Paramatma.) In order to clarify what I mean by that let us consider an example , suppose I support and protect good people who pray me but I also support people who are rapists and murderers and thieves indirectly then am I a person of moral integrity? No.

    BTW Ravana and devils are not a demi-god. – Triyugi Narayan Mani Sep 27 '17 at 13:01

    Well Ravana was not enemy to Krishna. He is a Rakshasa(from mother) and Brahmana (from father). So He is no devil. Do not put Ravana under category of Pisacha, Preta et cetera. – user9392 Sep 27 '17 at 13:22

    @AnuragSingh Ravana was not enemy to Krishna Not only Ravana but there is/was/will not any enemy of Krishna (Parbrahma). If any devil considers Lord as his enemy then Lord consider those devils as his devotee Because if one mades Lord his enemy then that person will keep thinking about Lord as enemy and whoever thinks about Lord is his Devotee. Doesn't matter you think of Lord with Love or with Hate, Lord will take that thinking as devotion of your. – Rishabh Sep 28 '17 at 5:28

    @AnuragSingh Yes you are right partially in your last 2 comments (as per me). Although Ravana was son of Branma But he follows rakshasa dharma in his life. Unlike Lord Brahma he was of rajasa pravriti instead of satvik pravriti. He mostly act like a selfish cruel rural instead of a sage. Hence he is both Brahana and rakshasa. But coz of his karma he is more famous coz of his rakshasa guna instead of brahmana guna. His cruelty becomes more popular than his veda adhyana. – Rishabh Sep 28 '17 at 13:15

    @AnuragSingh I am not agreed with you thought of rajasa guna of Brahma. Besides how you can compare leela (stole clothes) of Lord Krishna with sins of Ravana? Krishna was a pure soul And Ravana was Evil soul. He spread terror in all lokas. He followed Rakshasa dharma in his life. How in the world you can compare a cruel personality who is guided by only selfness with Lord Krishna who has no self thing in his life. Moreover most of the karma of Ravana was of tamksik also. – Rishabh Sep 30 '17 at 4:14

 will Krishna make my faith steady in those demonic forces ?

Yes. The verse 7.21 is already listed in your Qn.
Under the mode of tamas, one prays to [possibly demonic] forces such as bhuta-preta or pishAcha:

यजन्ते सात्त्विका देवान्यक्षरक्षांसि राजसाः। प्रेतान्भूतगणांश्चान्ये यजन्ते तामसा जनाः
BG 17.4 - Those with sattva, worship the deva-s; those having rajas, worship the Yaksha and Raksha (rAkshasa); Other people possessed of tamas, worship ghosts and the spirits

Based on entity being worshipped, a person is more likely to get such thoughts during death. In such case, one attains such worlds. Refer this answer.

If yes then is there any morality innate to Lord Krishna?  

According to Krishna, whether one worships to good/bad/ugly -- whichever demigod -- is non-methodical. Though, it ultimately reaches to supreme One only.

BG 9.23 - O son of Kunti, Even those who being devoted to other deities and endowed with faith, worship [them], they also worship Me alone, following the wrong method.

People make their choices of worship according to their nature. They are helpless under Prakruti.
Wise people avoid judging their faith or lack of faith.

  • So you agree that there is no innate morality in Supreme Lord ? Lord supports whatever faith I take. There will be no resistance from God on me making a evil choice. – Dheeraj Verma Sep 27 '17 at 14:34
  • @Dheeraj yes that's correct. God helps you to strengthen your liking of faith. – iammilind Sep 27 '17 at 15:08
  • @dheerajverma Just one point adding on iammilind's comment. Even if God won't stop your faith that doesn't mean one should faith on Evils. Because if you will do that then you will get more far/away from moksha (final goal of human life). – Rishabh Sep 28 '17 at 5:43
  • @DheerajVerma in hinduism there is only cause and effect. The lord will not make you change the cause(your choice to worship demons, for example) and will not affect the effects that you will reap as a natural result. – user1952500 Sep 28 '17 at 7:39
  • @DheerajVerma there is innate morality in Krishna in the sense that good choices lead to good effects. The definition of good may however be different for different individuals. – user1952500 Sep 28 '17 at 7:41
