Since this is a public blog, I will only delve so deep. To make this as simple as possible, I highly suggest reading Arda Viraf. To sum things up, death is a process that has several stages that can create many different affects on the human spirit. Lets start with birth, once your first breath is taken in, the soul (karmic pedometer) come into the body and settles just below the Solar Chakra (Manipura). The breath out establishes the spiritual tether to your Fravashi (Guardian Spirit), and Astwihad (demon of death) puts the spiritual noose around your neck.
The soul (karmic pedometer) becomes heavier with any “sins” and becomes lighter with moral actions. This is why a Traditional Exorcism is so important, because not only is the pedometer removed, the tether Fravashi is devoured by the Daeva. This takes away any karmic weight and ahuric witness of your thoughts, words, and/or actions. The negative side this, if you turn your back on Ahriman, that guardian spirit will not be there to defend you against the assualts of Nasu. The importance of this is to keep from your spirit being corrupted into become a druj or Div that is an eternal slave to a particular Daeva.
Back to the death process, once you have died the spirit and soul (if still attached) exit the body through the final breath. The process is traumatic to the etheral person which requires 3 days to accept the event. During this 3 day period, the Fravashi comes to comfort the dead and to fight off Nasu. Should Nasu win, the dead becomes corrupted and can be used like a Goetic demon because this is the process used to entrap and use them. If Nasu fails, on the 4th day, the Chinvat Bridge is presented to the dead.
Depending on how heavy or light your soul is, will depend on who greets you at the edge of the bridge. Once you meet with either beautiful young man or the withered old hag, the Fravashi leaves you to them. If you are light the bridge is a beautiful wide rainbow that leads to the House of Song and if soul is heavey the bridge is a narrow sharp blade like a sword that is suspended over a black abyss. Here again, the consort for the dead must help them across the bridge because Astwihad will fly by and try to grab the noose to sling the dead into the abyss. Then there are those who have an equal amount of good and evil karma.
Purgatory is down around Mount Damavand, where the dessert is in a constant sand storm. Those with slightly bad karma are buried up to their nose in the sand and those with slightly bad karma are walking blindly on the heads’ of those whom are buried. Obviously its the withered hag who guides these dead to purgatory, but what about those without the soul? They to are guided by the hag into the abyss through the caverns of the volcano. These are the same caverns the druj and Div use every night to reak havoc on the material world.
Having an understanding of these things, we find wisdom in the Hindu concepts of reincarnation of the transferance of purification of Karmic debt through time spans with the underworld that consists of 7 layers with each layer having 4 sub layers, which gives us 28 layers of Hell. The last 4 layers is for dead that can’t be purified and reside in the darkest layers where the only light is from the jewels in the heads of the Nagas who reside there. Only Shiva has been able to remove himself from these deepest layers of Hell with the Bindu mantra RAM. This is why you see Vasuki as a necklace around his neck, and why Father Ahriman has Manasa wrapped around him. This shows he is incased in the realm of the Nagas, which is why we can go to reside with him should build choose the Ahrimani Great Liberation. Those who come and go as daeva may strike deals with the Daeva to be granted reincarnation to live out the will of the Daeva.
This is how Ahrimani Godhood is attained. Through aligning ourselves with Ahriman’s will, we have the choice to contiue His will in both Physical Reality or in the Invisble. Those whom are being punished can your playthings or any other thing you choose. You can create anything in Hell you choose, and live how you choose to. Just be aware, there are many dangerous things there that can devour your spirit.
