What are Anta?

Anta are the extreme end of the snake named Vasuki. Demigods hold one end of the snake while another end is held by demons. These ends are extremes of the virtues. For the sake of simplicity, abundance of virtue is called demigod while absence of the same is called demon. Kashyapa is father of all such demigods and demons. This necessarily means that demigods and demons are brainchild of human intellect.

Miteiya says that our target should not be choosing any of the either ends but elevate in upper direction right from the center
