Episode # 592 – Eveything is so good about the “Svarga Lokha”, but…..!!! 

In the previous episode, we had witnessed Mudgala asking about the significance of the “Svarga Lokha” and the “Deva-Dhootas” giving a beautiful reply for the same. The “Deva-Dhootas” explain how the “Svarga Lokha” is a self-sufficient and a self-sustained place with all the luxuries possible. There would be no dearth for food, water, happiness, etc. and the entire “Svarga Lokha” is something that can never even be compared for an inch with the “Manushya Lokha”, which is full of pain, suffering, misery and sorrow in many ways! Hence, the “Deva-Dhootas” assure Mudgala that once he transcends to the “Svarga-Lokha”, he wouldn’t need to wait for fifteen days for one sumptuous meal! They also assure him that he would be taken care of very nicely and he would receive the best of the best hospitality that he could ever imagine! But now, the question is very simple – Is Mudgala going to accept this offer and transcend to the “Svarga Lokha” along with the “Deva-Dhootas”? Or, does Mudgala have other ideas? Let us witness Mudgala’s decision in today’s episode. 

Listening patiently to all these, Mudgala asks the “Deva-Dhootas” thus, “Oh Deva-Dhootas! All what you’ve said seems to be fine. However, I’m puzzled – How can a place exist without any problems? How can a place have 100% happiness and luxuries? Or, are you trying to hide the negative aspects of the “Svarga Lokha” from my purview? I’m sure that every Lokha will have both positives and negatives. Hence, please tell me the negative aspects of the “Svarga Lokha”!” As Mudgala asks thus, the Deva-Dhootas try to give a befitting reply: “Oh Mudgala! Of course you’re right! No Lokha in this world can be 100% perfect in terms of only the positives. There is just one negative aspect when it comes to the “Svarga Lokha”! However, please do not worry! We’ve told you 100’s of positives about the “Svarga Lokha”, haven’t we? So, you would be having a good time there if you come with us!” This reply from the “Deva Dhootas” seemed a mere “Sales / Marketing talk” for Mudgala. He asks back thus, “Oh Deva-Dhootas! There you go! Now tell me that one negative aspect pertaining to the “Svarga Lokha”. I want to listen to it, evaluate the negative vs. all the 100 positives that you had mentioned earlier. Only if I find that this negative aspect is worth tolerating, I shall come with you!” 

As Mudgala firmly says thus, the Deva-Dhootas realize that no marketing talks would work with him! 🙂 They’re now pushed to tell the truth! Now the Deva-Dhootas reply thus, “Oh Mudgala! Since you’re asking us repeatedly and firmly, let us explain you the negative aspect – We’ve explained all the luxuries and the other positives haven’t we? You can experience all these luxuries only until the time that your “Punya-Kaala” is valid! After this “Punya-Kaala” is over, you would be pushed back into the “Manushya Lokha” again! This is the only glitch there! However, when you’re going through the “Punya-Kaala”, you would be able to enjoy all the available luxuries that you would have never imagined of otherwise!” In other words, there will be a certain time period that would be fixed for all of us as we enter into the “Svarga Lokha”. This time period depends upon the amount of “Punya Karma” that we’ve accumulated over our birth(s). More the “Punya-Karma” in our account, more the time that we will get to spend in the “Svarga Lokha”. However, when the time of exit comes, we would be mercilessly pushed out of the “Svarga Lokha”, only to be taking a re-birth in the “Manushya Lokha”, to accumulate more “Punya / Paapa Karma”. 

Thus, we can understand one thing very clearly here – The “Svarga Lokha” is not a place where we can reside permanently, and this is exactly what Mudgala is also understanding here! So for today, let us understand up to this point and let us wait till the next episode to witness what is Mudgala’s decision – Whether to still transcend to the “Svarga Lokha”, experience all the luxuries and come back to the Manushya Lokha? Or, is Mudgala’s decision something else? Stay tuned for an interesting accord! 🙂
