Before telling you about the punishments let me brief you about the very ancient Garuda Puran. In this Puran, some deadly punishment is mentioned which is literally breathtaking one. Garuda Purana is nothing but the holy manuscript of Hindu religion.
Garuda is a part of eighteen Puranas of Hindu texts which are called as Smriti. It is mainly pressuring on the reason and meaning of human life discovering the chat of Lord Vishnu and Garuda (King of Birds). Also, this Purana deals explicit issues of Hindu way of life linked with death, funeral rites, and reincarnation.
It briefs about the life after the death of humans. Garuda Purana highlighted the concept of heaven and hell which are considered by people to be same in these modern days of lifestyle.
