Swarga also known as Indra Loka, is one of the Divine Lokas in Hinduism, and Lord Indra rules this Divine Loka. It contains great beauty similar to Brahma Loka, also called as Sathya Loka. Those who do good karmic deeds would live in the Swarga Loka for a long period of time. Ancient righteous kings and sages and their consorts are still living in this Swarga Loka by enjoying all sorts of comforts in their life.
Those who come here after their death, would get a shining body, and can attain the status of the demi-god in the heaven. They can live in the palaces allocated to them in the heaven, and can enjoy great pleasures in their life. There also they can chant the Namah Shivaya Mantra, Rama Mantra and the Krishna Mantra, in order to spend their life in a joyful manner. In heaven, they would not suffer from diseases and mental pressures, similar to suffering in the earth, and they would happily enjoy their each and every moment of life in the Swarka Loka.
But after the completion of their good karmic deeds, again they must have to be born in the earth as mortals. Some of the demi gods would visit the earth, and would meditate on the almighty in some famous temples like Ahobilam, Mangalagiri, Thiruvannamalai and Kasi, in order to extend their life in Swarka Loka.
But at this present Kali Yuga, it is very difficult to reach the Swarka Loka after our death, because whether knowingly or unknowingly, we are committing lot of mistakes in our life regularly. But by worshiping the great Lord Indra, the head of the Swarka, regularly, and by chanting his names, we may reach that loka, after our death.
The great Narada Maharishi had described the significance of Swarga Loka as follows:
“According to me, Swarga Loka is considered as the popular divine world, next to my father Brahma’s Satya Loka. Whoever stays in this place, need not worry about anything in their life, and they would be given the divine nectar, Amirtha for attaining immortality for a long period of time. This place can be visited only by holy people like Tumburu, Prahalada, Dhruva and Brihaspati. The divine apsaras would give great spiritual pleasure through their dance, and they contain divine beauty. These Apsaras can be worshiped by the people in earth as mother goddesses”.
Let us keep worshiping Lord Indra throughout in our life and be blessed.
