Association with the Devas - associated Rebirth
« on: April 16, 2018, 02:11:04 AM »
What about association with the Devas? Did Guest ever came in touch or even have connections?

What does Guest think? Is it of benefit for one? How far is it such or endless?

As far as I know, in the pali canon, to have contact with devas would require supernatural powers. People who claims to have supernatural power is quite rare, and people who claims to have supernatural powers and is not lying is even more rare. Thus, I doubt if there is somebody here who would be able to address the questions made by bhante on account of his/her own personal experience.

The question is: "Would it be good to associate with Devas? Would it be good to give into it?", Nyom Danilo ?

People used to associate with the Devas since uncountable times, much much longer than common with pets.

The contact with the Devas of the Kamaloka is reached by generosity, virtue and wisdom, all of which are not really supernatural, of course not common. Higher realm require Jhana and even that is not that supernatural. Surely it's easier to be in relation of equal and lower, but what about the difference of being honored and protected by Devas or dogs, Gods or clansmen?

Karuna tvay bongkum Bhante,
Valued Danilo,
to encounter Devas one doesn't need to develop supernatural powers.
But I agree that you have to be calm and collected to be able to sense Devas.
They live in realms that are calmer than our normal living spaces. Plants are a good place for Devas to dwell. That's why traditionally incense sticks, flowers or perfume are offered at pujas or holy places to call Devas.
Making yourself clean and clear in body, mind and emotions would be a natural way to draw devas close.

For what purpose? To join merits.

Bhante Johann and Sophorn,
If it's not a matter of supernatural abilities, then why is not possible to come in contact with a deva, right now, through natural means?
   

The question is: "Would it be good to associate with Devas? Would it be good to give into it?", Nyom Danilo ?

I don't know anything about devas (apart of their deptiction as beings whose lead their lives with ease in higher realms). But if nibbana is one's goal, then the highest benefit would be association with those who are committed with the same goal.

Atma trust that Nyom Danilo 's health is well and he does not lack of anything important this days.

Bhante Johann and Sophorn,
If it's not a matter of supernatural abilities, then why is not possible to come in contact with a deva, right now, through natural means?

As told before, Nyom, generosity, Sila and as Nyom Sophorn told, certain level of concentration and attention is required. Just give it a serious practice, without thinking to much on certain perception of the aim, is important and if the focus is perfect on the training it self, it's just natural.

Sometimes (for many never, for some all the time) one might have the merits and past near relation, like for example the first two followers of the Buddha, to meet the Devas even on more raw level of awareness:

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā-sambuddhassa

(Mv.I.4.2) Now on that occasion the merchants Tapussa and Bhallika were traveling on the road from Ukkalā to that district. Then a devatā who had been a blood-relative of Tapussa and Bhallika said to the merchants, “There is the Blessed One, my dears, staying at the root of the Rājāyatana tree, newly fully awakened. Go and serve the Blessed One cooked grain-meal and honey balls. That will be for your long-term welfare & happiness.”

(Mv.I.4.3) Then the merchants Tapussa and Bhallika, taking cooked grain-meal and honey balls, went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, stood to one side. As they were standing there, the merchants Tapussa and Bhallika said to the Blessed One, “Lord, May the Blessed One accept our cooked grain-meal and honey balls, for that will be for our long-term welfare & happiness.”

(Mv.I.4.4) Then the thought occurred to the Blessed One, “Tathāgatas do not accept things with their hands. How shall I accept the cooked grain-meal and honey balls?” Then the Four Great Kings, having known with their awareness the train of thought in the Blessed One’s awareness, presented four stone bowls from the four directions to the Blessed One, (thinking) “May the Blessed One accept the cooked grain-meal and honey balls here [in the bowls].” The Blessed One accepted the exquisite stone bowls and the cooked grain-meal and honey balls. Having accepted them, he consumed them.

(Mv.I.4.5) Then the merchants Tapussa and Bhallika [knowing that the Blessed One had finished his meal and withdrawn his hand from the bowl, fell down with their heads at the Blessed One’s feet and][2] said to the Blessed One, “We go to the Blessed One for refuge, & to the Dhamma. May the Blessed One remember us as lay followers who have gone for refuge from this day forward, for life.”

And they were the first two-statement[3] lay followers in the world.

Another food for thoughts: observe certain animals like ants or bugs and look if they might be aware of the human realm and humans. Or a group of childs: look if they would be aware of a special person or special things for you,when it is right next to them.

Or, if wishing to meet a rock-star, eventually become one, what is the reason to meet?
   
The question is: "Would it be good to associate with Devas? Would it be good to give into it?", Nyom Danilo ?

I don't know anything about devas (apart of their deptiction as beings whose lead their lives with ease in higher realms). But if nibbana is one's goal, then the highest benefit would be association with those who are committed with the same goal.

Does Nyom Danilo think that there was even a single individual, who reached liberation, in the past, is in the present and will be, who did not, does not, will not associate much and formost with the devas and gods?

Even those who gain auspicious aims within the human realm have done, do, and will do such in good association with the Devas.

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā-sambuddhassa

In whatever place
a wise person makes his dwelling,
    — there providing food
for the virtuous,
   the restrained,
   leaders of the holy life —
he should dedicate that offering
to the devas there.
They, receiving honor, will honor him;
being respected, will show him respect.
As a result, they will feel sympathy for him,
   like that of a mother for her child, her son.
A person with whom the devas sympathize
   always meets with auspicious things.

"Those committed to Nibbana": aside of those gaining highest fruit in a human existence, all (aside of some previous Stream-enterer) individuals headed to Nibbana dwell in the Deva-Realms, have a Deva existence attained right now and all of the times. It's on the other side possible that the human realm is void of Noble ones.

And just as information: if Nyom Danilo did not, do not actually strong relations and support of Devas, he would never ever have appeared in this particular Brahma-host of paranimmita-vasavatti deva and nimmanarati deva here. Such would be near to impossible, not to speak of not suddenly fall away from this realm.

Honor and devotion toward Devas, dedication of ones sacrifices (saddha) means to give toward those in front, having come first, who are more exalted in real treasures .

Bhante Paññobhāsa gave once generously a nice description of the diffent realms of existence and their beings kind, if wishing to explore a little.

And it's importand that strong faith or knowing, association with the different kinds of Devas is a fundamental aspect of right view.
