As per my understanding, after death if I go to hell then my subtle and causal bodies will suffer and not my Atma.

Death causes the cessation of gross body or the Annamaya kosha and the Pranamaya Kosha. However Manomaya Kosha, Vignanamaya Kosha and Anandamaya Kosha remain along with the Atma.

My questions are :

Do subtle and causal bodies have sense organs like ear, eyes, nose etc..?

If subtle and causal bodies do not have them how do these bodies suffer in hell? (In order to suffer one must have gross six sense media which is lost after death.)

  • In every loka , one needs to get a body. Merely with subtle body , one cant do much . In heaven one should get bhoga shareera,pitru sharira in pitru loka , yatana shareera in hell – tekkk Sep 23 '17 at 22:47

    In dream we experiences such things without senses of gross body. Similarly I think one may experience with subtle body or say AntahKarana. – Pandya Sep 24 '17 at 11:45
  • Just remember , kamadeva was burned into ashes by shiva. His divine body was destroyed. But his athman is unaffected by shiva's wrath. He had to wait multiple yugas , before he got reincarnated as pradyumna , where he got a human body. – tekkk Sep 25 '17 at 1:26
