It would be interesting to know when exactly did this concept first appear in Hindu mythology. Clearly, the Vedas and the Upanishads do not talk about Naraka, and it seems to have begun in the Puranas. It is also worthwhile to note that many Hindus, like those from Arya Samaj do not accept the puranas. deeptrivia (talk) 19:30, 3 December 2005 (UTC)
In Japan it is known as Meifumadō.
It's not clear that "Meifumadõ" belongs here, or that it is in fact used by the Japanese as an equivalent to Sanskrit "Naraka". "Meifu" (冥府 "dark mansion") appears to be a poetic word for Hell (the normal term is jigoku = 地獄 Di Yu. "Meifumadou", as far as I can tell, is a very rare and possibly technical term meaning "the evil paths that lead to hell". It appears to have been popularized by a Japanese samurai film of that name.

Which forms of Bhuddism teach of Naraka? I was not aware of a Bhuddist "hell". MrHen
At the bottom of the page, it says "This Hindu-mythology related article..." This is a little racist. Hinduism is a still practiced religion, therefore cannot be considered mythology.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) November 29, 2006
Yes, I too do not agree with the terminology Hindu-mythology. Why is it considered "mythology" whereas other views of hell are not classified as being so. 184.108.40.206 01:10, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Can we please move Buddhist hell to a seperate page, Hinduism in unique as well Buddhism in their own rights, seperate them and do justiv=ce please, also, if hinduism is branded ans mythical, then all abrahamaic religion are as well.
The Article is biased against Non-Vaishnavas. Also Factually Incorrect. It says all non-Vaishnavas go to Hell.How come all non-vaishnavas go to hell even if they do good? This is a sweeping Statement. Vinodh.vinodh 18:26, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Citattion refers to some off line content, my questions is how many wikipedians can refer to that and verify that? I strongly condemned this and kindly request an admin to take action against this. Thank you! 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:40, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
This is a hummbuck article written by a person who has no basis in the Puranas. the Hindu hells are just purgatories and they are not the one eternal hell as in Abrahamic religions. Please change it and put Yama Loga article in its place. It seems better. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:09, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
