Stairway To Heaven Vs. Stairwell To Hell
Digital Art - Graphics
Judaism does not explain plainly what happens to one after death. The after death future is mysterious and has no guidance about what is to come. The only certainty is that each man must die - beyond that we can only guess. There are several heavens In Buddhism, all of which are part of so called illusionary reality. Even staying in Buddhist heaven is temporary. Because of that heaven is not a final destination but rather a limbo before reaching total enlightenment or mental state of Nirvana. Surprisingly enough, early Judaism had no concept of Hell as well, but it had a sort of supernatural place, a grave originally and in later times a Limbo where one becomes finally aware of one's life shortcomings and wrongdoings. The idea of Hell is a highly influential subject to everybody. It does not matter if you believe in it or not, it is always somewhere around; in movies, books, language. Jean-Paul Sartre in his play No Exit explores the idea that "Hell is other people".
