|4 B. Effects on the reader||Decreases faith in Dharma in the minds of readers and increases their thoughts against Dharma making them unrighteous||As emotion is evoked in readers there is a danger of them getting trapped in thoughts at the psychological level or in the imaginary world||They receive spiritual knowledge, verbal knowledge on the truth and thoughts about following Dharma and spiritual practice increase in their minds, taking them closer to God-realisation|
|4 C. Effects on the premises||Negative energy is emitted in the premises polluting it and creating a seat of negative energy there||Vibrations of emotion spread in the premises creating a seat of emotions||Divine Consciousness (Chaitanya) spreads in the premises saturating it and creating a seat of Divine Consciousness there|
