[gita-talk] Heaven, Hell or Earth ? How to Explain to a Child ?


Often children have been told :   Do good unto others,  then you will attain the heavens.   If you do bad to others, then you will go to hell.   Children understand that where they are currently living,  is called the earth is  (abode of death).   It is not called heaven or hell.   Children also understand the geography of this earth.  Earth is in the solar system,  that too they are familiar with.   
When some child asks :   Where is this heaven and hell ?   How can we go there i.e. by doing what spiritual practice ?   then the answer to be given is not such that a child can understand.   How is the child to be explained this ?   

Please clarify


अकसर बच्चोंको कहा जाता है : दूसरोंका भला करोगे तो स्वर्ग मिलेगा। दूसरोंका बुरा करोगे तो नरक मिलेगा। 
बच्चे यह तो समझते हैं कि वे जहाँ रह रहे हैं, उसे पृथ्वी (मनुष्य लोक / मृत्यु लोक) कहा जाता है, उसे स्वर्ग या 
नरक नहीं कहा जाता। पृथ्वीका भूगोल भी बच्चे समझते हैं। सौर-मण्डलमें पृथ्वी ग्रह की स्थितिसे भी वे अपरिचित नहीं हैं।  
जब कोई बच्चा पूछता है : यह स्वर्ग, नरक कहाँ है? वहाँ कैसे (किस साधनसे) जाया जाता है?  
तो ऐसा उत्तर देते नहीं बनता जो उसकी (बच्चेकी) समझमें आ जाय। उसे (बच्चेको) कैसे बताया जाय? 
कृपया समाधान कीजिये।
