By Swami Harshananda

Loka literally means ‘world’.

This word is also used in a more general sense to indicate birth in a body capable of experiencing happiness and misery. It also means people in general.

Apart from the three worlds or the seven worlds or the fourteen worlds, the scriptures mention other types of worlds also.
