EASTERN RELIGIOUS BELIEFS ABOUT HELL


Buddhists believe in 7 "hot hells" which await the evildoers - each flanked by 4 torture chambers that include a fiery pit and a quagmire.


Tibetan Buddhists also speak of eight cold hells and certain "Frontier" hells for those guilty of lesser sins.


Hindus believe in 21 hells – which are temporary abodes where their bad karma (the evil one commits during a lifetime) is burned away.


Jainism (an offshoot of Hinduism) believes in 8.4 million hells where humans are punished for their sins. Those guilty of unpardonable sins are kept in a bottomless abyss forever.


(U.S. News & World Report 3/25/91 p. 64. From a sermon by Jeff Strite, Heaven and Hell - For Real 10/3/2011)
