Skandham-5. Chapter-2. Slokam-22 & 23.



Slokam-22.



After Purvacitti's departure, King Agnidhra, his lusty desires not at all
satisfied, always thought of her. Therefore, in accordance with the Vedic
injunctions, the King, after his death, was promoted to the same lokam as his
celestial wife. That lokam, which is called Pitrulokam, is where the pitas, the
forefathers, live in great delight.


If one always thinks of something, he certainly gets a related body after
death.King Agnidhra was always thinking of Pitrulokam, the place where his
wife had returned. Therefore after his death he achieved that samelokam,
probably to live with her again. Bhagavadgeeta also says:


"Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his body, that state he
will attain without fail." (Bg. 8.6) We can naturally conclude that if we always
think of Krishna or become fully Krishna conscious, we can be promoted to the
Vaikundam, where Lord eternally lives.



Slokam-23.


After the departure of their father, the nine brothers married the nine
daughters of Meru named Merudevi, Pratirupa, Ugradamstri, Lata, Ramya,
