28 Punishments for OUR SINS — GARUDA PURANA

Why do they go to hell? The Blessed Lord said: The righteous go into the city of the King of Justice by three gateways, but the sinful go into it only by the road of the southern gate. I will tell you who the sinners are who go by it. Those who steal the wealth of the teacher, the property of the temple or puraana the twice-born; those who take away the possessions of women, and those who steal the possessions of children.

Those who do not repay their debts; those who misappropriate deposits; those who betray confidence; and those who kill with poisonous foods. Those who seize upon the fault and depreciate the merit, who are jealous of those who have merit, who are attached to the wicked, who are foolish, who turn away from the company of the good. Those who are elated at seeing the miserable, who try to make the happy wretched, who speak evil words, and are putana evil-minded.

These, and many others, very sinful, devoid of righteousness, certainly go on the Way of Yama, weeping day and night.

I will tell you what sinners fall into it. Those who dishonour their mothers, fathers, teachers and preceptors and the reverend,–these men sink in it. Puranaa takes away what he gave; who repents of his gifts: Who obstructs sacrifices; who prevents the telling of stories; who removes field-boundaries; who ploughs up pastures.

Who covets the King’s wife; who abducts others’ wives, who is lustful towards virgins, and who slanders punishjents women; Having come all along pnishments path the sinful reach the abode of Yama, and having come, by command of Yama, the messengers hurl them into that river again.


Who did not make gifts of black cows, nor perform the ceremonies for those who are in the upper body; having suffered great misery in it, go to the tree standing on its bank.

Who give false witness; who perform false duties; who earn by cheating, and who gain a livelihood by thieving. Who cut down and destroy big trees, gardens and forests; who neglect vows and pilgrimages, who destroy the chastity of widows. The woman who despises her husband pugana thinks about another,–such and others at the silk-cotton tree experience much beating.

The Garuda Purana: Chapter VI. An Account of the Kinds of Sins which lead to Hell

Those who fall down, through being beaten, the messengers cast into hells. I will tell you about the sinful who fall into them. Deniers, those who break the laws of enlgish, the avaricious, those attached to sense-objects, hypocrites, the ungrateful,–these certainly go to hell. Those who destroy wells, tanks, ponds, shrines, or people’s houses,–these certainly go to hell. Those who eat, having neglected their wives, children, servants and teachers, and having neglected the offerings to the forefathers and the Shining Ones,–these certainly go to hell.

Those who obstruct roads with posts, with mounds, with timber, with stones or with thorns,–these certainly go to hell.

That wretched twice-born is not worthy of salutation at any time; those fools who worship him certainly go garudz hell. Those who, through malignity, commit transgression at the time of conception, with women who have no other refuge,these certainly go to hell. Puran who throw their bodily refuse into fire, into water, in a garden, in a road, or in a cowpen,–these certainly punishmenfs to hell. Those who are makers of swords, and of bows and arrows, and those who are sellers of them,–these certainly go to hell.

Those who do not compassionate the helpless, who hate the good, who punish the guiltless;–these certainly go to hell.


Those who are suspicious of all creatures, and who are cruel to them, those who deceive all creatures;–these certainly go to hell. Those who assume observances, and afterwards, with senses uncontrolled, cast them away again,–these certainly go to hell.

Those who betray their friends; those who cut short friendship; and those who destroy hopes;–these certainly go to hell. The very sinful man who sets fire to a purwna, a village or a wood, is captured by the messengers of Yama and baked in pits of fire.

When his limbs are burnt with fire, he begs for a shady place, and then is led by the messengers into the forest of sword-like leaves.

When his limbs are cut by its leaves, sharp as swords, then they say, ‘Ah, ha!

Sleep comfortably in this cool shade! When, afflicted with thirst, he begs for water to drink, then the messengers englksh him boiling oil to drink. Getting up again somehow, he wails piteously. Powerless and breathless he is unable even to speak.

Being tortured thus, men and women by thousands are baked in dreadful hells until the coming of the deluge.

28 Deadly punishments mentioned in Garuda Puran- Daily Bhaskar

Having eaten there their undecaying fruits they are born again. By order of Yama they return to the earth and become unmoving and other creatures:. Trees, bushes, plants, creepers, rocks and grasses, these are spoken of as unmoving; enveloped in great delusion, Insects, birds, animals and fish;–it is said punishmemts there are eighty-four hundred thousands of fates of birth-fates. All these evolve thence pugana the human condition; having come back from hell they are born in the human kingdom amongst low outcastes, and even there, by the stains of sin, become very miserable.

Thus they become men and women oozing with leprosy, born blind, infested with grievous maladies, and bearing the marks of sin. An Account of the Signs of Sins.
