What is Hell like? Every time I think of Mr.Norio Nagayama(永山則夫), who committed a brutal crime but came to believe in God in jail, wrote a book named “Ignorant Tears” and was sent to the chair at last, emotions throng on my heart. Did he go to Hell? In view of his tremendous penitence, isn’t there any chance of his being forgiven by God ?

There is a law that in the other world people experience the converse to the experiences in this world like a mirror. The Karma you make in this world of giving things to others as charity (precedent cause) will make Karma of being given things from others in the other world(subsequent effect) . So if you should kill someone in this world, you could have an experience of being killed in the other world. The initiative of all things is in this world of Reality, so that’s why this world is very precious.

In that sense, he goes to Hell once to experience the converse to what he did. However, that he reflected upon himself deeply in this world means that he goes to some comfortable world after going to Hell. Yes.
