Heaven (or Swarga ) is that which delights the mind ; hell (or Naraka) is that which gives it pain : hence vice is called hell ; virtue is called heaven .
Enjoyment in Swarga , like punishment in Naraka, is only for a certain period, according to the merit , or demerit, of the individual. When the account is balanced, the man is born is born again amongst mankind.
The virtuous are then conveyed to Swarga or Elysium , whilst the wicked are driven to the different regions of Naraka or Tartarus .
