Abstract:

In the long tradition of Hindu literature there was a significant development in the concept of hell from the period of the Vedas (c.1500-1000 BCE) through the period of the Puranas (c.300-1500 CE). The earliest descriptions are vague, particularly in terms of topography, alluding only to an underground, dark, putrid place for punishing sinners. Later descriptions calculate the huge dimensions, and designate almost innumerable subdivisions, of hell. Hell descriptions have been collected here from eight Hindu texts: The Rig-Veda, Atharva-Veda [Veda of the Wise and the Old], The Mahabharata, The.
