Tired of waiting rooms with uncomfortable chairs, outdated magazines, and stale coffee? Then it's time to treat yourself to a visit to Svarga, the Hindu Good Kingdom, where waiting has never been more luxurious or divine!
Reaching Svarga requires earning enough good karma to merit a spot in this ethereal realm. So, remember to be kind, compassionate, and helpful in your daily life (Kinsley 78). After all, you wouldn't want to miss out on the celestial amenities that await you! But them, it's not really a good deed if you do it expecting a reward... well that's tricky. Oh well, I'm sure you'll figure it out.
Upon arrival in Svarga, you'll be greeted by the god Indra, the ruler of this heavenly domain, who will graciously escort you to your divine accommodations (Kinsley 80). And fear not, for unlike other waiting rooms, you won't find any out-of-date magazines or lukewarm coffee here.
Instead, you'll be treated to the finest celestial entertainment, with heavenly music, dance, and even performances by the divine Apsaras, the celestial nymphs (Kinsley 82). And let's not forget the gourmet, heavenly cuisine prepared by divine chefs, who make even the fussiest of eaters swoon with delight.
As you bask in the unmatched luxury of Svarga, you may find yourself thinking that all waiting rooms should take a page from this divine playbook. So, the next time you find yourself stuck in a mundane waiting room on Earth, just close your eyes and let your memories of Svarga transport you to a more heavenly state of mind.
