Who Are the Six Kinds of Aggressors (Aatataayees)
ANSWER: (page 377 of the book)
“agnida: garada: chaiva sustrOnmatha:
KsEtra Dhaara hara: cha yetaan shad vidhyaath aatathaayina: //
The following people are called “Aatataayees” (aggressors that are punishable):
(i) One who wantonly indulges in arson to others’ properties
(ii) One who clandestinely administers poison to another
(iii) One who is obsessed with wielding weapons of destruction for attacking others without any provocation (such as in animal slaughter).
(iv) One who steals others’ properties/wealth.
(v) One who tries to forcibly dispossess others’ property and grabs them for his own enjoyment and
(vi) One who seduces / abducts another’s wife for his own sexual gratification.
It is said that one who kills his preceptor, children, Brahmins well versed in Shaastras. also belongs to this category. No sin would accrue, if these are killed says Manu. Thus one can see how those who forcibly take another's life/body, and killing it, eat it etc are the most sinful, selfish, and cold hearted of persons. It is very conceivable that the purport to their suffering be that of the words of George Bernard Shaw.
This is confirmed in the purport of Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada's Bhagavad Gita As It Is purport 1:36.
