I'm looking for the evidence slokas that the whole universe in the brahmandara are divided 3 parts, upper world where devatas and pious people live, middle world: bhumandala, and underground world where the asuras live.

  • Basically they are three realms that is Space, Water and Earth which are ruled by Om(AUM) or Br(A)hma, Vishn(U) and (M)ahesh and occupied by Gods, Humans and animal/insects i.e. Triguna Maya of white Satva(wisdom) Saraswati,red Rajas(passion) Laxmi and black Tamas(ignorance) Kaali i.e trinity of old age, youth and childhood. holy-bhagavad-gita.org/chapter/14 Geeta 14.5 O mighty-armed Arjun, the material energy consists of three guṇas (modes)—sattva (goodness), rajas (passion), and tamas (ignorance). These modes bind the eternal soul to the perishable body.

  • Gota 14.15 Those who die with predominance of sattva reach the pure abodes (which are free from rajas and tamas) of the learned. Those who die with prevalence of the mode of passion are born among people driven by work, while those dying in the mode of ignorance take birth in the animal kingdom. Those situated in the mode of goodness rise upward; those in the mode of passion stay in the middle; and those in the mode of ignorance go downward.

Oh Great Sage, Inside this Brahmanda there are Seven dvipas, Seven Patalas, and Seven Lokas. In all these lokas the living entities are filled up in subtle, subtler, subtlest forms, also in gross, and grossier forms.
