Concept of Heaven
(swarga - naraka)
concept of Heaven (termed Swarga in Hinduism) is totally different
than in Christianity. The concept of reincarnation as defined in
most dictionaries and encyclopedias... the rebirth of the soul in
a new body is flawed. In Hinduism... the soul atman is considered
never dies... how can it rebirth! In Hinduism... the soul atman
exists from times immemorial. Only when the big bang occurs... the
souls atmans started their cosmic journey! As per Hinduism the life
cycle of a soul atman is 96.4 million earthly years... it needs
manifesting 8.4 million bodies before regaining its original prime
pristine primordial form.
As per Hinduism
every soul atman after the death of the body manifests a new body...
a new cycle of life! If matching parents are not available on Mother
Earth... the soul atman hibernates in heaven or hell. In heaven...
if the residual balance of karma is positive and hell if negative!
and hell exist in Sun. Heaven (Swarga) exists in the core of sun
where temperatures exceed millions of degrees centigrade. It is
in such high temperatures the soul atman feels comfortable. Hell
exists on the periphery of the sun where temperatures are considerably
less... it is in such low temperatures the soul atman suffers for
the most sacred Scripture of Hinduism is absolutely clear on this
point. Both heaven and hell serve as interim stations for the hibernating
soul atman! The moment matching parents become available on Mother
Earth... the hibernating soul atman immediately manifests a new
body... and starts a new cycle of life!
The moment human
beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation
(moksha)... the liberated soul atman as per Hinduism enters Vaikuntha
(aka kingdom of God in Christianity). The path of spirituality takes
one directly to God Almighty. It is the path of spirituality...
the path of jnana yoga that has been dealt with in Bhagavad Gita.
Heaven is not
a place to be visited bodily... it simply cannot be! However, religious
preachers of Hinduism advocate going to heaven (Swarga) after death...
a place for rejoicing endlessly... a concept similar as propagated
in Christianity. In Hinduism God Almighty does not reside in heaven...
but in Christianity it does.
teachings in Hinduism do not differ much than Christianity. Owing
to their vested interests the religious teachers of present era...
misguide the public at large! Their survival is at stake... they
need their bread-and-butter... by telling the gullible public that
a seat of their choice would be made available in heaven... they
simply earned their livelihood!
