On his way up to the heaven, he came across hell and was a bit taken aback by all the screams and shouts of people. He asked Yama about the place and the people who were screaming in agony. Yama replied that the place was hell and that those who were screaming and shouting in agony were the souls of those who indulged and committed themselves to the acts of evil and wrong doings. Janaka stood there for a while and asked Yama if there was a way to get them rid of their pains. To his Yama replied that their pains would end if someone would sacrifice all the rewards of good acts of purity and righteousness of life for them. To this Janaka told Yama that he was ready to sacrifice his rewards for the freedom of those in hell. Yam asked him as to why he was ready to sacrifice his rewards of good deeds for them. Janaka replied that it was the ultimate duty of a human to help others. Yama was pleased to hear Janaka’s answer and freed the souls from hell.
