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.

Oppose . It is not true that 'Svarga is not used anywhere'. It is used much more than 'swarga' in RS. Remove the inappropriate hits to holiday resorts et.c. by adding disambiguations such as 'loka' to the word, and it becomes more common. E.g. in book search svarga loka gets 3900 hits and swarga loka gets 1900 hits. Several other dictionaries have 'svarga' rather than 'swarga' as the standard term, including as far as I can see the Merriam Webster. Imc (talk) 18:47, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
