How are different lokas defined?

[Smt. Anita Renkuntla asked: There is always a question at the back of my mind related to different lokas. Swamiji, wherever You are there, that place itself or there itself exists all lokas like Brahma Loka, Goloka, Svarga Loka and so on. And a person who is undergoing punishment that place itself is Hell. Am I correct? If not, do enlighten me. Do forgive me for my ignorance. At Your Divine Lotus Feet, Anita Renkuntla]

Swami Replied:- The lokas have their physical existence in the space in which energetic incarnation of God exists. This loka called Martyaloka or earth contains human incarnation. In both the incarnations, same God Datta containing the same unimaginable God exists. In this way, this earth becomes exactly equal to the upper world containing the energetic incarnation of God. By reaching the contemporary human incarnation on the earth while alive is called Jiivanmukti or salvation while alive. After death the same soul in energetic body reaches the upper energetic world containing energetic incarnation and this is called as Videhamukti or salvation after death.
