Judgment and Heaven

Egyptian book of the dead

In the famous scene below the fourteen deities, Ani’s heart is inside a small urn and is placed on a scale. On the other side of the scale is the feather of Maat, the goddess of truth. Ani’s heart must not be heavier than this feather. If it is, he will be eaten by Ammit, the crocodile-headed devourer who waits patiently at the base of the scale. The Ibis-headed god, Thoth, the god of wisdom records the results.

 HEAVEN – Aaru

In ancient Egyptian mythology, the fields of Aaru (alternatives: Yaaru, Iaru, Aalu), are the heavenly paradise, sometimes referred to as the the Egyptian reed fields, where Osiris ruled after he became part of the Egyptian pantheon and displaced Anubis in the Ogdoad tradition.

The hearts of those who failed the test were given to Ammit for her to devour, and their souls were not permitted to enter Aaru, having to be restless forever—dying a second time.

Her role is reflected in her name, which means Devourer or, more accurately, and less euphemistically, Bone Eater, and her titles such as Devourer of the dead, Devourer of millions (Am-heh in Egyptian), Eater of hearts, and Greatness of Death.
