Reply To: Video illustrating the concept of Niraya (Hell)


Thank you both for the comments.

I think Christian’s point could be the following: The video shows the unfortunate girl dying due to her attempted abortion effort and immediately being born in hell.

  • I agree that is unlikely. Unless it is an anantarika kamma (or one has exhausted all kammic energy for the human bhava), one will not be released from the human bhava to another bhava at the moment of death.
  • Since she died at an early age due to an accident, it is unlikely that she had exhausted all kammic energy for her human bhava. Thus, her human gandhabba should come out of the dead body without changing the bhava to a lower one. 

P.S. After a lengthy discussion, the conclusion was determined to be not accurate. See the following discussion and comment #46280.
