LORD KRISHNA SAYS:
The faith of man is in accordance with his natural disposition. Faith constitutes the very being of man; therefore whatever the nature of his faith, that verily he is. (Gita-17/3)
Men of Sattvika disposition worship the Gods, those of Rajasika disposition worship Yaksas (Genie) and Raksas (Demons),
while those of Tamasika disposition worship spirits and ghosts. (Gita-17/4)
Those lacking faith, practice austere penance not enjoined by the scriptures and are full of hypocrisy, egoism, desire and attachment.
They torture the aggregate of elements that constitute their body and ME who dwell in their inner body. Know them to be of demoniacal resolve. (Gita-17/5 & 6)
'HARI OM' "AMEN"
"THE HOLY GHOST / SPIRIT OF GOD
(God / Brahman Speaking To Anne Terri Through The Holy Spirit)
I Am The Holy Ghost Speaking to Anne with the Voice of God, which is Myself. This is as Jesus Taught to his Apostles, as how to Hear Me - within -
to become a Christ.
The ghosts mentioned within The Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 17:4 are as wayward spirits who are not sanctioned within Heaven's Dimensions to Teach.
Perhaps Vatsa Sridatta will share with you, references to Genies in other parts of Hindu Scriptures.

Guna means 'string' or 'a single thread or strand of a cord or twine'. In more abstract uses, it may mean 'a subdivision, species, kind, quality', or an operational principle or tendency.
In Samkhya philosophy, there are three major gunas that serve as the fundamental operating principles or 'tendencies' of prakriti (universal nature) which are called: sattva guna, rajas guna, and tamas guna. The three primary gunas are generally accepted to be associated with creation (sattva), preservation (rajas), and destruction (tamas) (see also Aum and Trimurti).The entire creation and its process of evolution is carried out by these three major gunas.
*The Gunas, born of Prakriti
The three Gunas and the four motivations of life, and are the intrinsic qualities of Prakriti.
Prakriti is the universal energy of primary matter or Nature.
The three Gunas are Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas, and they are often associated with creation (Brahma), preservation (Vishnu), and destruction (Shiva) respectively. Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva make up the Hindu Trinity or Trimurti, and with their association with the three Gunas we can see how they represent the three stages that matter, or Nature, goes through in her continuous cycle of life.
Sattva translates as essence. When someone or something is sattvic it has the qualities of purity, equilibrium, harmony, and goodness.
Rajas ; translates as air or vapor. Being rajasic has the qualities of activity, movement, and passion.
Tamas translates as darkness, ignorance, and illusion. It is also a term for the obstruction of the Sun and Moon during eclipses. Tamasic qualities indicate sluggishness, inertia, and lethargy.
In the Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna explains the Gunas to Arjuna in great detail:
It is the three gunas born of prakriti – sattva, rajas, and tamas – that bind the immortal Self to the body.
Sattva – pure, luminous, and free from sorrow – binds us with attachment to happiness and wisdom. Rajas is passion, arising from selfish desire and attachment. These bind the Self with compulsive action.
Tamas, born of ignorance, deludes all creatures through heedlessness, indolence, and sleep.
Sattva binds us to happiness; rajas binds us to action. Tamas, distorting our understanding, binds us to delusion
