18. Who destroy hopes and who destroys affection, who through dislike abandons his wife, becomes a ruddy Goose for a long time.

I must mention here that there are 84,00,000 of hells, out of which the following 21 are dreadful among the most dreadful.

The names of these hells are :

1. Tamisra - Darkness

2. Lauhashanku - Iron spears

3. Maharauravashalmali - Very terrible silk Cotton tree.

4. Raurava - Terrible

5. Kalasutraka - Blossoming

19. Sampratapana - Burning

The sinful fools, who fall into these experience the various torments of these hells till ages.





 *The torments and punishments described in the Garuda Purana are so terrifying that if you read this book in young age, you will even stop killing a mosquito*

One example of such a torment is here :

The very sinful man who sets fire to a house, a village or wood is captured by the messengers of Yama and baked in pits of fire.

When his limbs are burnt with fire, he begs for shady place, and then is led by the messengers into a forest of sword-like leaves.

When his limbs are cut by its leaves, sharp as swords, then the messengers say, " Ah, Ha ! Sleep comfortably in this cool shade."

When efflicted with thirst, he begs for water to drink, then the messeners give him boiling oil to drink.

Then they say, "Drink this liquid and eat this food." As soon as he drinks it, he falls down, burning inside.

Getting up again somwhow, he wails piteously. Powerless and breathless, he is unable even to speak.

The Garuda Purana contains a huge quantum of such Punishments and torments which a sinful soul has to go through.

In my next article I will be writing about 'Re-birth'.

Also, what sins lead to re-birth in what forms of lives. Hope you must have found it interesting. Please do upvote and comment to support me spreading the word of our Holy Books !

Thanks a ton !





In my previous articel we have read about the torments that the soul gets, its visit to YamaLoka and back to earth.

I am sure you must have seen in Movies that, the moment a person dies, the next moment his travel starts to YamaLoka and later on he goes to Heaven or Hell according to his deeds ! But that's not exactly how it happens !!

After reaching to YamaLoka, again the soul is Sent to Earth, near its relatives where the soul sees its relatives crying in misery.

The soul remains there itself for the next 13 days.

What Happens In those  13 Days ???

According to Hindu Rituals, the son of the dead Has to do Shraadh (Special Rituals Done after Death).

The son offers Rice balls in the Ritual for next 13 days continuously. These Rice Balls are divided into 4 parts.

Who all share the rice balls ???


1. 2 of the 4 portions give nourishment to the 5 elements which makeup human body (Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Sky).

2. Third portion goes to the messengers of Yama.

3. The soul lives upon the 4th portion of Rice Balls.

From each day's offering of Rice Balls the body starts to form for the soul.

Day 1. By the rice balls of the first day, the Head is formed.

Day 2. By the rice balls of the secondt day, the Neck and the shoulders are formed.

Day 3. By the rice balls of the third day, the Heart is formed.

Day 4. By the 4th, the Back forms.

Day 5. By the 5th, Navel.

Day 6. By the 6th, the Hips and Secret Parts.

Day 7. By the 7th, thighs are formed.

Day 8. By 8th, knees.

Day 9. Feet is formed on the 9th day's offering.

Day10.  By the 10th day Hunger and Thirst.

The Soul feeds on the rice balls offered on 11th and 12th day.

On 13th day the minute body which is formed in the last 12 days eats its last share of Rice balls and gets energy and departs, bound by the servants of Yama, it slowly walks along like a captured monkey.


The extent of way of Yama measures 86,000 Yojanas ( 1 Yojana = 8-9 miles).

The Departed keeps on travelling 247 Yojanas (247x8 miles) daily, day and night, without rest.

The departed has to cross 18 cities / junctions before reaching the destination Place of Yama.


"If you think that life is bad, I am sure after reading this you will come to know that LIFE AFTER DEATH IS WORSE"
