The Afterlife and Judgment

Egyptian Mythology Afterlife and Judgment - Egypt Tours Portal

Egyptian Mythology Afterlife and Judgment Story

The ancient Egyptians believed in the continuity of life and consequences. One of the ancient Egyptian's main ideologies was the afterlife as they believed that the soul is immortal and the earth was only part of a larger plan and journey. They believed that the soul consists of nine-part that was part of one earthly existence and at death, the Akh "(Transformed-self), As recorded in the book of the dead" would be met by the god of death Anubis who guides the deceased to their final resting place the underworld than to the hall of truth and wait their turn for judgment by the hand of the ruler of the underworld Osiris.

And when the right time comes, Anubis would lead the souls to stand before the scribe of Thoth and Osiris in front of the golden scales where the Goddess of Harmony and balance Ma’at would be present, surrounded by the forty-two judges who would consult with the gods to determine every soul’s fate. The process of Judgment was the reason behind mummification as the Egyptians chose to preserve their body using the mummification process if the soul chooses to return to the body and head to the afterlife.

The process of judgment begins with the heart of the deceased who contains the soul, then it is handed to Osiris who places it on a great golden scale balanced against the white feather of Ma’at "the feather of truth". If the soul was found to be lighter than the feather then the soul was justified and when the gods & the forty-two judges agreed, the soul would be allowed to move on to heavens called the Field of Reeds (The place of purification and eternal bliss) by boarding the ship of Ra through the dark underworld but If the heart was heavier than the feather then it would be thrown on the deepest place in existence, where It will be eaten by the monster god Ammut who has the face of crocodile and the back of a rhinoceros Known as “the Gobbler” who devour the person’s soul which then ceases to exist.
