The armies of the Asuras (Daityas and Danavas), Rakshasas, and Pisachas frequently come to Earth and kill humans.

It is even said in scriptures that the food for Pisachas is human flesh.

Do these creatures sin by doing this?

    If you know human flesh is food for them how can it be a sin? Is it a sin for tigers to eat deer-meat? – Rickross Mar 18 at 6:07
  • @Rickross very very pertinent question. – commonman Mar 18 at 8:34
  • @Rickross Well Tigers don't have intelligence and so they don't sin, but Pisachas do. – Ikshvaku Mar 18 at 20:02
  • @Rickross did u know that all tigers are fools? – commonman Mar 19 at 2:22
  • If it is part of their food habit then it can not be sin .. because they can't live without it .. first survival, then questions like Dharma Adharma arise .. Smritis already make this clear @Ikshvaku – Rickross Mar 19 at 5:53
