Uttara’s

Mansion

Moggallana Bhante:

Devata, your beauty shines in all

directions like the bright star named

Osadhi.

What are the meritorious deeds that

led to this happiness?

Tell me Devata, what kind of

meritorious action did you do when you

were in the human world to have gained

this beauty that shines in all directions,

and to have earned all these wonderful

things?

That devata, delighted at being

questioned by Arahant Moggallana,

gladly explained what she had done that

resulted in such great happiness.

Devata:

In my previous life, I was a

housewife in the human world. I did not

envy anyone. I was not greedy, nor was I

arrogant. I was obedient to my husband

and did not get angry at him. I was

eager to observe the Eight Precepts four

times a month on each of the four moon

phases. I led a restrained life and was

very generous.

I abstained from killing, stealing,

lying, and taking intoxicants. I did not

cheat on my husband. I was delighted

to keep these Five Precepts every day. I

was a lay follower of Gautama Supreme

Buddha who had the great wisdom to

see the reality of the world. I was wise

enough to realize the Four Noble Truths.

Because of my virtuous life and

meritorious deeds, I live very happily

here. I have been born as a beautiful

devata and enjoy all the wonderful things

that delight my heart.

Great Bhante, those were the

meritorious deeds I did to have such a

beautiful body that

shines in all directions.

Please Bhante,

pay homage on my

behalf by placing your

head on the Blessed

One’s sacred feet

and saying, “Bhante,

the lay follower

named Uttara pays

homage by placing

her head on the

Blessed One’s sacred

feet.” The Blessed

One stated that I have

attained a certain fruit of

enlightenment. I too know

that.

Bhante, the Supreme

Buddha declared that I have

attained the fruit of once

returner.

Stories of

HeavenlyMansions

FROM THE VIMANAVATTHU

!!!

The

Elephant

A monk sees a group of

gods and another group

of ghosts and asks these

questions:

Monk :

The deva leading the

gods is riding a white

elephant. There is a deva

in the middle of the line

sitting on a chariot. At the

end of the line, a female

deva travels on a golden stage

which shines brightly in ten

directions. But you ghosts

are carrying hammers in your

hands with sad faces and

broken bodies. You also drink

each others’ blood. What bad

karma have you done in the

human world?

Ghost :

The one in front, riding

a white elephant was our eldest

son. Having given alms to monks, he is

now happy and delighted.

The one in the middle, sitting on

a chariot was our second son. He was

unselfish and very generous. He now

shines brilliantly.

The female deva with soft eyes like

a deer’s who is at the end, travelling on

a golden stage is our youngest daughter.

She was wise and donated half of her

wealth. She is now happy and delighted.

In the human world, our children gave

alms to monks with very pleasant minds.

But we were very selfish and insulted

monks. Our children are now very happy

because they practiced generosity, but we

are suffering like withered bamboo reeds.

Monk :

You are suffering today because you

missed the opportunity to do good deeds

when you had plenty of food and wealth.

Now in the ghost world, what kind of

food do you eat and what kind of bed do

you sleep on? How do you live here?

Ghost :

We hate each other. When we fight

each other using hammers, we drink the

blood and pus of our victims. But we are

still hungry.

Some rich people neither use their

wealth nor do meritorious deeds. These

greedy people are reborn in the ghost

world and suffer.

These ghosts experience the results of

their bad karma, suffering from hunger

and thirst; they are burning from suffering.

Wealth and property are temporary

things. Even this life is very short.

Wise people should understand this

impermanent nature of life and should

seek a way to protect themselves.

There are wise people who

understand the Dhamma well. Having

heard the teachings of Arahants, they do

not forget to give alms.

he stream of water of the River Nēranjarā

flows cooling its surroundings. A mild

breeze of wind moves through the leaves

of trees making a hasten sound like it is

trying to let the nature knows about its existence.

Clouds in the midnight sky is gathering to

witness the greatness that is about to happen on

the ground. The full moon is already there on

that Wesak Pōya day, and there is

a sage with an astounding figure

sitting under a Bo Tree. His eyes are

closed. He sits with his legs crossed

in a meditation posture. His focus

on the meditation subject is stern.

Time flew, but he is still focused.

He is attaining concentration. He

is stepping on to different states of

contemplation one by one. Many

wisdoms are in his grasp now. He is

shining and his body is emanating rays

of a great beautiful light defeating the

darkness surrounding him. He has now

attained His Supreme Buddhahood. He

is the Gautama Supreme Buddha. He

attained His enlightenment as a result

of His merits, His determination, and

His unfolded great effort. Since the day

He started a life of a recluse, His exerted

effort was remarkable. Even when His life

was hanged only by a thin thread of energy, He

would still not give up His endeavor in His goal

of becoming the Supreme Buddha. In fact He has

practiced His effort in an infinite number of His

past lives without any thought of giving it up.

The product of that great effort is none other but

the birth of this great human being, the Supreme

Buddha, who brought light to the lives of everyone

in this world.

If a disciple does not care about this moment

as a human being and the great fortune of the

presence of the Dhamma and just spends his/her

life delaying without stepping to that light, then

that person will have to face the danger of the

Samsāra. If we consider even the lay life, a person

needs to have some form of punctuality to thrive

in it. Otherwise, tardiness can bring a person the

misfortune that he will regret in the rest of his

life. For example, some young children miss their

chance in studying at the right time and passing

their exams that are crucial for the wellbeing

of their future. Then when they are facing their

lives without others’ help, that's the time that they

realize what has happened. That tardy life pattern

brought them a hardship to their life. Still they

might be able stand up if they have enough effort

and fortune to grow and face their lives with

minimum difficulty. But if a person who has been

tardy when they had the chance in cultivating

merits to their lives, that person may not at all get

another chance to be that fortunate again before

leaving this human life. It is because this life

has been formed due to our old actions (Karma),

and it will end at an unknown time showing its

uncertainty and transience. The Supreme Buddha

always pronounced the importance of being

diligent in cultivating once merits and realizing

the Four Noble Truths. For that He taught us

an insightful meditation, which is known as the

'contemplation of death (Maranhānussati)', so

the disciple would become more vigilant about

the uncertain nature of life and be prompt in

cultivating the Dhamma. He even urged His

disciples to be prompt at His passing moment.

This is mentioned in the Mahāparinibbhāna Sutta

(Dīgha Nikāya).

"Handa dāni, Bhikkhavē, āmantayāmi

vō, vayadhammā saṅkhārā appamādēna

sampādētha” “Bhikkhus, I address you one last

time―everything that is formed due to a cause

has its end, so don’t be late (in cultivating the

Dhamma).”

We all respect and take the words of the

Supreme Buddha seriously. If these are the last

words of our Great Teacher, then we can imagine

how important it is to be diligent in following the

path of the Noble Dhamma. One who ignores the

compassionate words of the Supreme Buddha

and follows a tardy life style engaging sensual

pleasures will have to face the danger of getting

births in bad destinations such as ghost world and

hell worlds as he dies. In the Dhammapada, there

is a complete chapter in this regard. The first verse

in the Appamāda Vagga of the Dhammapada says,

“Appamādō amatapadan –

pamādō machchunō padan

Appamattā na mīyanti –

yē pamattā yathā matā

One who observes and protects the precepts,

practices the concentration, and cultivates the

wisdom promptly reaches the Nibbāna. But one

who is charmed by sensual pleasures and delayed in

following the path of the Dhamma only gets death

over and over. Ones who cultivate the Dhamma

diligently become deathless. Even if the tardy people

still live, they would be like dead corpse.”

So if we get to know the danger of this

Samsara from the teachings of the Gautama

Supreme Buddha, what shall we do to protect

ourselves from that danger and how do we

correctly follow the path disclosed in the Dhamma

to completely put an end to the suffering? For

this, one shall learn the teachings of the Supreme

Buddha and form a solemn faith towards Him.

Such a faith will bring that disciple to have a

commenced effort of learning more and more

what He taught. Once the knowledge acquired by

learning the Dhamma ripe within oneself, he will

then develop a stern faith towards the Dhamma

too. Studying the Dhamma and learning the

lives of great Disciples of the Supreme Buddha

will further verify the fruits of the Noble Path

described in the teachings. The noble life styles

of the Disciple Bhikkhus and their attainments of

the Nibbāna will help the person to come to an

unshakable faith towards the Bhikkhu Sangha as

well. Having faith towards to a Great Teacher, His

teachings, and the Disciple Sangha will definitely

open our eyes about the importance of following

the path without delaying it to a future task. In

that diligent effort, one must have a Buddhist

disciple’s virtue by observing and practicing at

least the five precepts and the eight precepts at

least on Pōya days. These are the four factors

of a stream entrant (Sōtāpatti Angāni) who has

achieved the first stage of enlightenment. As we

all know, following this Noble Dhamma is not an

easy task in a world that swallows our minds each

moment with the help of five sensual pleasures.

But if we are to cultivate virtue, concentration,

and wisdom in this life by having mindfulness

to be diligent, it would be actually a great

attainment at least for our future lives in fulfilling

the noble aim of realizing the Four Noble

Truths. For that let us be prompt in practicing

the Dhamma and cultivating the tranquil mind

by Samatha meditation and cultivating wisdom

by Vidharshanā meditation without giving into

laziness (Thīna middha), without letting our

minds to scatter (Uddachcha), without getting

trapped into regret (Kukkuchcha), and without

being suspicious about the path (Vichikichchā).

Let us start our effort in becoming a Noble

Disciple of the Gautama Supreme Buddha.
