Devayana


Devayana, in Hinduism, is the path, or the way, of the deva, followed by the truly faithful after death, leading to the realization of Brahman. (Chandogya Upanisad 4. 15. 5. 1) The path is narrow and dangerous, and very similar to the bridge leading toYama. In a less mythical sense, it is a path of wisdom and spiritual knowledge. A.G.H.
