In my previous article we have seen how painful is the process of Death. Now, in this article I will be explaning about the way to YAMALOKA.
The size of the soul which is pulled out of the body has been described as the size of a Thumb. Which means, The man of the size of a thumb, crying out 'oh, oh,' is dragged from the body by the servants of Yama, looking the while at his own body.
The messengers of Yama threaten the soul by saying"Hurry up you wicked man, you will be soon led to various hells." Then hearing these words, and the cry of his relatives, he is beaten badly by the servants of Yama. The soul is then forcefully lead to a long way in the same way as a King's officer lead a convict.
With the treats of the messengers of Yama, the soul starts to remember all his/her misdeeds.
Hungry and thirsty, getting almost roasted in sun, falling here and there exhausted, being beaten by the messengers of Yama, painfully he walks and reaches YAMALOKA.
Having seen the Yama, by the command of Yama, the soul is again brought back swiftly to earth near his relatives. The soul after seeing its body tries to go back into it but is held back by Mesengers of Yama.
Yes, we have heard many times from people that the soul tries to attack people. Actually, it desires a body, and usually it desires for its own, but after cremation, till 13 days the body of the son of the dead is more prone to be acquired by the soul.
Now, there is something very special, ashtonishing, crucial in these 13 days. These 13 days aka TERAHVIN (Thirteenth) has its own importance. I will be explaining this in the next article !
