garuda puranam ch 16 slideshow part 4 of 7.flv

Vedic hymns and prayers reiterate the need to seek the true identity of the individual and of the universal Self.Through Garuda purana,human beings are directed to avoid sin and hell. Garuda Purana is one of the greatest Vishnu Puranas presenting the essence of Vedic knowledge.It is in the form of a dialog between Vishnu and Garuda,the intermediate states between birth and rebirth, which roughly correspond to the western concepts of Hell and Heaven.The Garuda Purana starts with the details of the afterlife.It is an account of funeral procedures, including rituals, the astrological timing of the post-death observances, and ritual gifts.The final part of this text is an appeal to self-knowledge as the key to liberation, going beyond austerities and study of the texts.
