Great Shrieking Hell (Daikyokan Jigoku or 大叫喚地獄)

daikyokan jigoku fukuoka tochoji

Painting of Daikyokan Jigoku @ Fukuoka, Japan’s Tochoji

This painting represents one of the eight great hells of Buddhism. In this lovely place the tortures inflicted on the sinners are ten times as great as those in the four hells above them and the other sixteen subsidiary minor hells put together. The good news is that you are only stuck here for eight thousand years. The bad news is that one day in this hell is equal to eight thousand years in heaven, and one day in heaven is equal to eight hundred years in the human world.
