Those who cross the Chinvat Bridge, will spend eternity in heaven, and sit on a golden chair in the house of music. Everyone who falls from the bridge, fall into hell. But, each person has a different bridge. For those who were good person, the bridge is wide, and for those who were not good, the bridge is narrow. And that's not all. Good person will have a companion to assist. Bad person will have a barking dog on the bridge, who trying to push them off the Chinvat Bridge.

And, everything depends on the way in which you die. So, in the space of hell - Mictlan, are going those who die from old age, sickness and the like. Those who end up in a beautiful place of eternal spring - Tlalocan must die from lightning strikes or drowning. And at the end, is particularly heavenly place for selected, where governments Sun God - Tonatiuh. This special heaven is reserved for warriors and martyrs who died in the name of the Sun God, and women who died in childbirth. Thus, pregnant women were respected as much as warriors.
