Punishment

The punishment that are described, however, seem mild and un-sadistic in comparison to the European ideas of hell. In one place, for example, certain souls are punished by being made to walk a long time through violent storms. In another place, the soul has to pass through a narrow gateway which is swarming with ants: here the women who have been remiss in sweeping the floor or their houses are punished.
