Reply To: Sotapanna information from the Sutta-pitaka


Lal said:
“Those latter 7 births were within the same deva realm. Of course, there is no gandhabba state or going into a womb in the deva realm, so when a deva dies — and born in the same realm — that deva seems to just to be born in a different “location”.

1) So that means just as a single human bhava has multiple human jathi within that bhava, same is the case for a deva bhava? Example: one single deva bhava can have 10 deva jathi within it?

2) Is the same true for a single brahma bhava, peta bhava, asura bhava, niraya bhava? Or does 1 brahma bhava equal to only 1 brahma jathi?
