Hades is a place with various concepts prevalent among people. Some say that it is a place where there is only darkness, some believe that only souls reside in the underworld but some believe that dangerous creatures reside in the underworld who destroy the evil spirits. But everyone is unaware of what the truth is in real.

Mystery of underworld


Even though Hades has a different form in different religions and beliefs, there is a similarity in all of them. All religions believe that Hades is a place that lies miles below the ground. This is an invisible place which a person can see only in the form of a soul after leaving his present body. It is believed that to reach this place the soul has to pass through a deep well, pit, or tunnel. After coming out of this scary dark place, he reaches straight to the underworld. Well, whatever the description, in every belief the name of Hades makes people tremble with fear.

Punishment in hell


Some people believe that after leaving the body, the soul goes to the underworld in its subtle state. Here, an account of the deeds done by him while he was alive, i.e. his sins and virtues, is prepared. After which he is punished on the same basis by the god of the underworld. But based on other beliefs it is said that after death all souls have to go to hell. This is the journey of becoming a soul after death, going to hell, and being born again after spending some time there.

Hades in Mesopotamian civilization


Even in the ancient Mesopotamian civilization, there are some stories related to the underworld, which are related to the goddess Inanna. It is said that once Inanna Devi had gone to her sister Arshkigal, who was the queen of Hades, for war to capture the city of Hades. But he died in the struggle. Later, at the request of the gods, Arshkigal decided to free the spirit of Goddess Ananna. It was only after this incident that the belief arose that after death, the soul resides in the underworld for some time, and then later on the orders of the gods, it is released to enter another body.

But opposite to the Greeks was the discovery of the Maya civilization, which again revived the fear of Hades among the people. This revelation of Maya civilization is very horrifying and painful. This civilization believes that Hades is not just a place where the sins of the soul are punished, but it is much more painful than that.

These layers are not transparent, rather there are sharp metals around them that force the soul to groan in pain.

It is very surprising to hear all these stories, but the underworld of the Hindu religion has been elaborated quite easily in the religious texts.

They calculate the good and bad deeds done by him in his life. On this basis, they give him a place in heaven or hell.
