In the long tradition of Hindu literature, there was a significant development in the concept of hell from the period of the Vedas (c. 1500–1000 BCE) through the period of the Puranas (c. 300–1500 CE). The earliest descriptions are vague, particularly in terms of topography, alluding only to an underground, dark, putrid place for punishing sinners. Later descriptions calculate the huge dimensions and designate almost innumerable subdivisions of hell. Hell descriptions have been collected here from eight Hindu texts: The Rig-Veda The Atharva-Veda The Mahabharata The Ramayana The Markandeya Purana The Vamana Purana The Padma Purana The Agni Purana This work is published in conjunction with the website www.Hell-on-Line.org, which presents a comprehensive collection of materials on the more than 100 visions, tours and descriptions of the infernal otherworld from the various cultures of the world from 2000 BCE to the present. Eight texts, 94 pages. Includes introduction, glossary, notes, bibliography and web resources.
