Reply To: Maha Brahma


Reading the Brahmanimantanika Sutta (MN 49) we see Mara saying that those who do not have faith in Maha Brahma will end up in the lower worlds. This is exactly what monotheistic beliefs (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) say. Except that for them, it is an eternal hell. This is the basis of these beliefs “faith in a creative and eternal God”. Unfortunately, it is a well-established micchādiṭṭhi and it is very hard to get out of it. This is why these religions are the most widespread in the world.
