नरकोद्धारवर्णनं नाम षोडशोऽध्यायः
Salvation from hell description Chapter 16सनत्कुमार उवाच |
Sanatkumar said (to sage Vyasa)
पुमान्न नरकं याति यः स्मरेद्भक्तितो मुने |
अहर्निशं शिवं तस्मात्स क्षिणाशेषपातकः || 35 ||
Sage, a man does not go to hell who remembers Lord Shiva by devotion day and night. Therefore his sins reduce to none.
Demons including Daityas (progeny of Diti) and Danavas (progeny of Danu) live in Rasatala. Below the Patala are the hells.
