Q:What happens after death? A: The soul leaves the physical body after death and remains in space until it gets another body based on its deeds in the past births or based on the predominant impressions at the time of death in the immediate past. While the soul is in space until it gets another body it remains in a state of dream and depending on the good, bad, pleasant and unpleasant impressions it is carrying it enjoys and suffers in that state. This is what is called as experiences of hell and heaven. The dreams are long when soul does not have a physical body because it is not able to wake up and hence dreams which are frightening and scary can really make the soul suffer endlessly.
THE JOY OF SEEING OTHERS JOY IS A BIGGER JOY THAN OUR OWN JOY
