The Garuda Purana – Part 1

Pakshiraj Garuda requested Lord Vishnu, “O Lord, after visiting all the three worlds, after seeing the people living in it, I concluded that they remain immersed in all miseries.


My inner ear pains. There is fear in heaven from the enmity of demons. In the earth world, from the separation of death, disease and anointed things. The snakes living in the underworld, etc., remain sad because of my fear. “

When a man, having experienced the accumulated results of the good and bad karma of his previous birth, and doing karma in this birth, reaches the state of death, then many diseases arise in the body. Like a sudden snake, he goes on being tied in the clutches of death. He leads a miserable life at home, helpless, handicapped, physically and mentally, suffering from pains, yet carrying in his mind the desire to live.

When the group of senses of a dying person becomes disturbed, the conscious body becomes engorged, then in the last moments comes a celestial consciousness in which all the worlds look alike. At that time he is unable to speak anything and leaves the life body and goes with the messengers of Yamraj.


When prana leaves the body, there is a lot of pain and pain as if stung by a sleeping scorpion / Foam forms in his mouth and the whole mouth starts filling with spit.

At that time, the creatures who are sad souls, they are killed by the Yamdoots by tying them in their hindrances.

Those who are good workers, they are happily taken by the councilors of heaven to their world.

Fear arises in the minds of sinners only after seeing the messengers of Bhima Kaya, the evil form of Yama Raj. Crying, a dead man the size of a thumb, looking at his house, dragged by eunuchs, suffering many tortures on the way, is taken in front of Yamraj.


The Jiva sees the physique of the most terrible Yamraj and then immediately on his orders comes back to his dead place, accompanied by the eunuchs. He tries to go back to his body, but the eunuchs keep hanging around his neck. He suffers a lot of hunger and thirst and cries a lot. He eats the rice cakes offered by his sons, yet his hunger does not go away.

The souls who do not get these flowers, they wander in the deserted forest.
