Hinduism Concept of Heaven
(swarga - naraka)


The Hinduism 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 indestructible.

When something 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!

Both heaven 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 eternity!

Bhagavad Gita... 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.

The religious 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!
