On the 20th of December 2018, after my spirit returned to the living realm from the hell of black ropes that morning, in the afternoon while I was resting, I received a thought message from the Dharma protectors that the court of Yama invites me to go there to observe.
When I arrived, I saw two sinned spirits kneeling on the floor in front of Yama. The male sinned spirit was the lustful teacher who I saw at the hearing on the 10th of December 2018, while the female sinned spirit was the young girl who committed deeds of sexual misconduct and abortion which I saw at the hearing on the 14th of December 2018.
The senior Yama said, “As a teacher, do you have no shame? How could you do such shameless acts? Your behaviour is an embarrassment to the teachings of morals and virtues. Zhang XX, could you provide a testimonial of the punishment you experienced in the hell of embrace? So that people understand that they shouldn’t casually have sexual relationships, especially with underaged juniors (regardless if they’re male or female) and the courts will record every deed of sexual misconduct. If adults do act on one’s ethics and morals and treads over the line and let themselves become depraved and have sexual relationships with many people, when they die, they will receive a punishment in hell.”
“On the 10th of December 2018, after I had given my testimonial in front of our guest, the executioners took me to the hell of embrace. I followed the executioners and walked for a long time until I arrived at the top of a valley. Down below, I saw many iron pillars, and there was a sea of sinned spirits, male and female, young, mature and old.
Beside the tall valley, there was a narrow and winding path that leads to that hell. The escorting executioners passed me to the executioners in charge of the hell of embrace and left. I then had all of my clothing forcefully removed until I was naked. The size of the executioners was almost twice my size. They then dragged me, and as I followed, I could feel that the soil was getting hotter.
When I stepped into the hell of embrace, sexual thoughts began to be brought forth, and it was something I couldn’t control. My mind was constantly thinking about erotic scenes and images, and moments after I was immersed inside it, I found myself embracing a smouldering hot iron pillar, and the burning sensation and pain coursed throughout my whole body. I immediately came to my senses and cried. My skin was stuck to the iron pillar and was making a sizzling sound, and I couldn’t hold back my tears and my screams. When the sexual thoughts began to subside in my mind, the iron pillar gradually cooled down. My whole body flopped down on to the floor and kept on crying. It’s too late for regrets. Not long after, I became unconscious. Then the next day when dawn broke, my spiritual body recovered back to its original form when I first arrived at the hell of embrace, When the executioners saw me, they woke me up and dragged me back towards the iron pillars. Then my mind soon again thought of erotic scenes and images, and the punishment was repeated, where I was roasted again while embracing the iron pillar. Every day, I was punished the same way over and over again…” (He cried.)
Then the senior Yama said, “XXX (the female sinned spirit) before you learned Buddhism, you were promiscuous and had affairs with many men. After you learned Buddhism, you made a vow of celibacy and will never commit deeds of sexual misconduct. But then when you encountered your affinities of the present life, you couldn’t control your feelings and committed deeds of sexual misconduct and violated your vow and precepts. Additionally, you aborted and ruined a life. That’s why I sentenced you to be punished in the hell of biting cold for your sexual misconduct, and the hell of iron mountains for your abortion. Now in the realm of the dead, you may share your testimonial so that the sentient beings of the living realm will know about the consequences of committing deeds of sexual misconduct and abortion to warn others to abstain from it. Lust is the worst of all sins. Regardless of whether you believe it or not, hell truly exists.”
The sinned spirit said, “I am also one of the people who after I had given my testimonial in front of our guest on the 14th of December 2018, the executioners took me to the hell of biting cold. I can’t recall how I travelled to the entrance of the snow mountains; all I remember was that I walked for a long time. Just before I entered the snow mountain, I was stripped naked forcefully, and my clothes were handed over to a female executioner to safe keep who will return it when I was released from that hell. I followed the executioners and entered into the hell of snow mountains. That hell was probably as big as the Himalaya mountains. The air was blistering cold, and it felt like minus 30 degrees Celsius. There were many sinned spirits from different nationalities in that hell; there were Asians, blonde westerners and black people. There were both men and women, the young, adults and a minority of elderly people. I and all the other sinned spirits were cuffed in iron chains, and we were led by an executioner (who wore clothes) in the front up the snow mountains. I thought that after death, I would lose all my senses. But I would still feel cold as if I was still alive.
The snow mountains were enormous. The wind gusts frequently, and because of the biting coldness of it, it felt like icy blades slicing through my face. The snow beneath our feet was very thick, so we walked very slowly as each step was very painful. My skin gradually split due to the coldness, as well as my lips. Just like that, we kept on walking and walking. We were mentally exhausted, but the executioners didn’t give us any rest at all.
I lost track of time. I didn’t know whether it had been a few days or a week, but I once again arrived at the entrance. The executioner called out my name and said that I had completed my sentence at the hell of snow mountains, and I was permitted to leave. A female executioner returned my clothes to me to wear. Afterwards, I was taken to the hell of iron mountains. Unlike the hell of snow mountains, the hell of iron mountains was a dark and great underground mountain. The air was hot and humid. Here, there were also many sinned spirits from different countries who gathered here to be punished. The executioners yelled at us to hurry up the mountain, but the ground had many sharp spikes protruding out of it. There were many bloodied infants (who were aborted) floating around in the sky and crying. They stared at us filled with resentment, and they knew that we were sinned parents who aborted before. I was afraid, I was afraid of being discovered by the child who I aborted, and I trembled all over. I endured the sharp pain in my feet as I slowly walked up the mountain with every bloody step.
When a sinned spirit tripped on to the floor, the floating babies that surrounded us would take the opportunity to bite the person to vent out some of the resentment of being killed. The infants didn’t care who was their parents anymore, and the executioners ignored the infants. Just like that, we slowly went up the mountain. Then when we got to the top, the executioners would order us to go back down. Hell is an unspeakably miserable place. Don’t abort! Don’t commit deeds of sexual misconduct! Look at my karmic retribution, do you still not believe that hell exists?” Then the female sinned spirit cried loudly.
The senior Yama said, “I’m mindful that you did reform yourself after learning Buddhism, and it’s because you encountered an affinity from your past life and couldn’t control yourself and was persuaded by the man to commit the unwholesome act of abortion. And during your sentence in hell, you were regretful. Thus you are now free from hell and permitted to reincarnate as a human. In the human realm, there will be Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who will guide you back on the path of Buddhist cultivation. Follow the executioners; you may leave now.”
I’m grateful Master.

How shocking, it’s true.
