Brahma Vaivarta Purana


Delivering the Wives of the Brähmanas

Chapter 18: Verse 111-120



111.She who cheats her husband and goes to another is the lowest of woman. She goes to hell for as long as the sun and moon shine in the sky.

112.The Yamadütas take her to hell. If she tries to flee their tortures, they beat her with sticks.

113.Big as snakes, fearsome sharp-fanged worms bite an unchaste woman day and night, again and again.

114.Again and again she screams terribly, but she does not die because she has only a subtle body of mind and intelligence.

115.After enjoying a few moments of pleasure she becomes infamous in this world, and after death she attains a life of torture.

116. Lord Brahmä says that a woman who desires another man or who is touched by another man is a sinner and should be rejected.

117.Therefore the pious carefully keep their wives from the gaze of others. Not seen even by the sun, their wives remain pure, chaste, and devoted to their husbands.

118.An independent woman that goes where she likes, is seen by all, and chases after men, is like a pig.

119.A wife who, afraid to break the religious principle of chastity, is faithful to her husband, goes with him to Vaikunöha.

120.No please go to a human birth on the earth. You will see Lord Kåñna and simply by seeing Him, you will go to Goloka.
