Heaven or hell

Yudhistara is taken to paradise first by Vyasa where he finds his friends and family missing. He demands to see them. They descend to a place with putrid smell and all. Then Bhima, Karna, Draupadi, Arjuna all tell him they are down there. His next words should be hang in all churches and mosques: I will stay here with my family.

Vyasa then tells him that was the final illusion; there is no paradise no hell. No words. No friends. No enemies. Just silence.

As long as one man is in hell, heaven should not be occupied. That is, if there is a heaven.

Don’t worry, be happy. Once you die, it is all silence. But don’t take my word for it. Die and find out.

  1. Here’s an old Islamic saying I just made up. ” Hell is farting in crowded elevator and having everyone on it knowing you’re the one who farted.”

    There might actually be a hell. The ad on my email notification for this post is Ice-T selling car shields.

    I still don’t seem to be getting you in my reader. 😦
    Then I forget to search for you.
    I won’t mind that quiet silent place.

    Hinduism makes most of the Semitic monotheisms seem laughably simple and primitive. It’s still all made up, in many cases to justify social control and injustice, but it is pretty amazing stuff!
