Dear Smt. Anitha Seshadri:

Further to the posting on "Fruits of Action" Adiyen
has the following opinion. Adiyen does not have any
pramanams for this, and is purely based on what 'looks'
- repeat - 'looks' logical:

Nara    -    is the term mentioned for mentioning humans
agam    -    is normally used to mentioned for a dwelling /
                  living place.

It is adiyen's belief that this boo logam could be "naragam"
[aka hell] where one in put through various 'punishments'
by the kind of birth owing to respective Jiva's karma.

Typically, when one talks of "hell" the first thing that is
discussed is "frying one in oil pan" - that could be the jiva's
state - as we get to see the kind of non-vegetarian cooking
in restaurants.

Hence it is adiyen's belief that re-birth in this lokam - going
through various ups, downs and ofcourse the troubles if a
Jiva is to take the body of an insect, animal etc., is the only
punishment.

Bhagavatas may kindly bear with adiyen, if this is not the
right approach and would request to share the concept that
is appropriate.
