Arupa in Hindu mythology, are the bodiless pure spirits, one of the three classes of living beings. They are subdivided into four classes, each of which has a separate dwelling; and the lowest is so high above the earth. that it would take four years for a stone to fall from that point to the. earth. The souls of the dead are born again as Arupa, and do not need a transmigration through various stages in order to reach the heavenly bliss. They immediately step into heaven after their new birth as blessed spirits.
