Reply To: Respect for anariya yogi?


Yes. Even though Devas could be reborn directly in an apaya (lowest four realms including niraya), Brahmas cannot be reborn directly in an apaya. They are first reborn in the human realm, and the subsequent rebirths take place depending on what happens there.

  • Devas are in the kama loka. To get a Brahama birth (and to transcend the kama loka), one must cultivate jhana and that takes a special effort. Brahma births are “mahaggata” or “higher quality” births.
