Example text

The 24th Chapter of the 5th section of Bhāgavata Purāṇa concurs, adding that this world is like a luxurious resort, free from infections, fatigue, and aging. The Sun and other luminaries cannot shine into these nether regions. The entire world is lit instead by the brilliance held within fantastic gems that the residents wear, often as crown-jewels on their serpentine hoods. The Viṣṇu Purāṇa states that the Nāga are extremely influential throughout all seven of the nether realms. Vāyu Purāṇa lists the specific Nāga who predominate each nether realm: Kāliya, Takṣaka, Hemaka, Vainateya, Kirmira, and Vāsuki.

They severely wounded the gods and brought them to the brink of total defeat. This illustrates that without Puṣya we cannot be successful. Being “without Puṣya” means losing our unity with the divine. Ego destroys this union. Thus, when fouled by the ego of power and luxury we, like Indra, lose access to divine communion, and all the blossoms of our prosperity wither. This story of Indra and Bṛhaspati will continue through many of the rest of the stars. ” A coiled serpent is a fitting symbol for Āśleṣā, because serpents coil around things: embracing and entwining with them.

They perform sacrifices, prayers and meditations to pacify the chaos and confusion which tends to befall newly deceased souls. The foremost of all the Pitṛ is Aryamā. ” We will discuss Aryamā in more detail, because he has his own star very close by, Uttara Phālgunī. The Afterlife Garuḍa Purāṇa’s 14th chapter relates: The god of death, Yama is the master of the Pitṛ’s world, pitṛ-loka – the afterlife realm, which is “below” the earthly realm but “above” the nether-paradise of the Nāga. The Pitṛ guide the soul through the afterlife, which contains experiences akin to our modern western concepts of heaven and hell.
