Hell corresponds to atheists, committed to sins during life. It is considered as fiery, painful and harsh, providing sufferings to guilty.

According to Chanakaya, the poisons are due to excessive necessities in the form of hunger, ego, greed, laziness, injustice, anger, increased wealth and desires, and worst habits. The sinners come short of the glory of God. People involved in wrong actions always fear of untimely death and departure to hell.
