What does Heaven look like


Analyzing concept of heaven... what does heaven look like is not easy for masses... commoners to understand! Even from viewpoint of religion hinduism concept of heaven is the most grossly misunderstood concept both in Hinduism and Christianity! Even in Islamic Dharma... the concept of heaven and hell is not clearly understood by most! Why?

The whole community as on date and even in past was primarily ruled by religious preachers! These go-getters even without knowing basics of spirituality indulged in matters scriptural! The clergy... priests and religious teachers of different religions always tried to influence masses by picturizing an absolutely non-existent situation of heaven!

Heaven is not a place where people go bodily! Nor is heaven a place where resides God Almighty! The saying... our father who art in heaven is an absolute misnomer! Heaven (termed swarga in Hinduism) exists in core of sun where temperatures exceed millions of degrees centigrade. In such high temperatures can we still say, "When we all get to heaven"?

Whatever is preached by religious clergy stems from absolute ignorance! None who has traveled religious path can know about heaven or hell! The truth about heaven only becomes known by traveling spiritual path diligently and sincerely! It is only through medium of spirituality human beings finally unveiled secrets of heaven and hell!

Heaven was ordained by God Almighty as a resting place for souls' atmans that do not find matching parents on mother earth. After death of mortal body if the released soul atman does not find matching parents on mother earth it immediately hibernates in heaven or hell... in heaven if residual balance of karma is positive and hell... if negative!


Contrary to Heaven existing in center of sun... Hell exists in periphery of sun where temperatures are considerably less! It is in such low temperatures a soul atman suffers for eternity. Heaven primarily is an interim resting place for souls' atmans! Going to heaven or hell is primarily governed by doctrine of karma. As our karma... accordingly the future destination!

Concepts like stairway to heaven led zeppelin... heaven is a place on earth berlinda carlisle... show me heaven maria mckee... 7 minutes in heaven fall out boy... Are totally misguiding! The description of heaven is best given in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! Talk by religionists of going to heaven bodily is an absolute misnomer.

If we say... heaven shall burn... the truth is Heaven is already burning inside the core of sun! For understanding intricacies of cosmic system... for assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita relating to heaven or hell... we have to travel path of spirituality... not religion! Only by traveling path of spirituality we are able to know essence of our spirit... our soul atman within!


Concept of heaven and hell can be clearly understood via path of Hinduism... never otherwise! People often ask... what will happen after death, what happens to the body after death! The answer to both these queries is available in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! After death of body... our soul atman again manifests another body based on residual balance of karma!

As per Bhagavad Gita our soul atman... the spirit within is the absolute master and controller of human body! It is our soul atman that manifests human form to work out its karma... remove dross impurities within! It is not within the capability of a human body to manifest a soul atman. Our soul atman is the ultimate master and controller of human body and not vice versa!

Our soul atman being the absolute master and controller of human body... the journey of life also belongs to our soul atman and never the human form... prime reason why we cannot go bodily to heaven or hell ever! What will happen after death is neither a mystery nor what happens to the body after death! In our ignorance we only failed to understand the scriptural texts and precepts!


A serious seeker of spirituality truly understands what heaven and hell (Swarga and Naraka in Hinduism) is all about! For a true seeker of spirituality essence of life lay in kingdom of God and never kingdom of heaven! As per Bhagavad Gita Hinduism... the moment a soul atman finally liberates from cycle of birth and death forever... it enters kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... never kingdom of heaven!

Reaching kingdom of God is ultimate goal of life for every soul atman! For every single life form goal of life always remained reaching cosmic end of life... 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)! Permanent release from cycle of birth and death is gained moment human being becomes an enlightened one!

The liberated soul atman finally enters abode of God... Kingdom of God... a point of no return! A soul atman having purified itself fully... the need for soul atman to manifest another body now ceased to exist! The law of karma being governing factor for entire cosmos... it is essential for human beings to dwell in doctrine of karma!


As we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more... says the law of karma! The doctrine of Karma was necessitated in cosmic system for evolution to take root! In absence of karma... the whole cosmic system simply could not exist! Karma acts as accountant general of cosmic system... keeping record of every single action committed by every life form!

Right from first manifestation as an amoeba (single cell formation) to last... the 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) ... it is the law of karma that governs and controls life of every mortal being including insect, plant and animal life!

Hindu belief in heaven and hell is necessitated to understand cosmic system made by Almighty God! For seekers of spirituality... for travelers of spiritual path... concept of heaven carries no meaning at all! As a human being we are never supposed to worry about... what will happen after death. As death is inevitable... all is left behind the moment death takes over!


Furthermore... no godly forces... gods or goddesses exist in heaven! The manifestation process by a soul atman is automatic... gradual! If the residual balance of karma of present life after death of body demands our soul atman manifesting form of a laborer in next life... we simply cannot don the garb of a Prince! It just cannot be... law of karma does not permit this!

If we truly desire manifesting a higher level in next manifestation... our indulgence in positive karma... good karma all the time is essential! For reaching kingdom of God (never kingdom of heaven)... understanding gist of Bhagavad Gita is an absolute necessity! One single scripture... Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism suffices for human beings to understand ABCD of life!

Right from stage of big bang when God Almighty (termed Brahman in Hinduism) explodes self... to the stage of dissolution of cosmos (termed Pralaya in Hinduism)... all is detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism with clarity! Understanding the underlying meaning of 700 shlokas verses contained in Bhagavad Gita I finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age!


Whenever religionists talk of heaven (termed swarga in Hinduism)... it apparently reflects their ignorance! The blind faith people carried in such religious teachers led to mass ignorance amongst commoners! Even though the concept of heaven is not related to human beings... we talk about heaven in religious congregations quite often!

Talk to Pope in Christianity... he would emphasize there exists heaven where resides God! Such blasphemous thinking leads to utter ignorance in matters religious... prime reason why most people world over believed in concept of heaven (swarga)!

Once the cosmos is created... God Almighty is least concerned with heaven or hell! To the minutest detail... everything in cosmos runs automatically! Searching for proof of heaven or hell in various sacred texts of different religions of world carried no meaning! On the path of pure spirituality it never mattered whether heaven existed in sun or elsewhere!


As the ultimate goal of life in human form is reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) at the earliest... our indulgence in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is topmost priority! Passing life accumulating material riches beyond requirements do not reserve a seat in heaven... such concepts do not carry any meaning in spiritual world! We must learn to live life... never pass it!

Why follow path of religion when God Almighty can only be reached via path of spirituality? Improving our present must be our goal of life so that our soul atman manifests a higher form of life in next manifestation after death of body! Accumulating Punya karma in present life is the mantra for present Kali Yuga... dark times... the metal age!

Indulgence in sins repeatedly only leads to hell (Naraka in Hinduism)! Why accumulate bad karma and spoil the future! Every single heartburn results from our body not in synchronization with dictates of our soul atman... the ultimate master and controller of human body! By traveling path of absolute truthfulness one can hear the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman!


The voice of our soul atman always prompts us on the right path! Guided by voice of my soul atman ever since six years of age... I finally reached portals of God Almighty in 1993 at 37 years of age! Following path of absolute truthfulness always and ever was my Forte! I never succumbed to temporary pressures of life... knowingly indulged in untruthfulness ever!

Path of spirituality demands our traveling path of jnana yoga... never bhakti yoga! In the present metal age... Dark Age God Almighty can only be reached via path of jnana yoga... never bhakti yoga! Assimilating wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita is an absolute must. In present times one need not refer to Vedas (Hinduism revelations) as contents of Bhagavad Gita suffice for reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) in present life time!
