Tusita heaven

Postby steve19800 » Fri Apr 06, 2012 9:51 am

HEllo all,

Gautama Buddha, before his birth on earth was a Bodhisatta in Tusita. The same thing goes for Metteya Bodhisatta. Tusita is one of the Kamadhatu, located between Yāma and the Nirmāṇarati heaven. They will be born on earth to attain Buddhahood. Question is why they are not the resident of higher heaven i.e. above Kamadhatu such as Brahma realm? Anyone has any thought? Thanks

That might be the case for the wordlings living on the Earth of the Milky Way galaxy. For other residents living on other Earths of different galaxies, or different universes, the Buddhas might live on other heavens. So, their version of Nikayas might be slightly different than ours though they must all agree on the core teachings like 4NT, 8NP, 12DO, 3 marks, etc... :tongue:
