In Slavic before Christianity the Svarga represented a place of deceased ones, heaven, place of god Svarun or Svarog. Svar means "bright" or "boiling one" (the one who transforms something (in heat or chemical process); example "svarit/svaryeno mleko" (curdled milk; making cheese) or vreti mleko (to boil a milk). Loka is slavic Log or "heaven" or "place"; example Log (special place of the holy forest (a paradise)) and ber-log or brlog; "bear's lair". That's why it was Svarog's log a Svarga log or Svargaloka also known in Sanskrit.
