Friends:

 Refuge is the Winner move for Blinded Beings!

The Venerable Mahamoggallana once told a large group of young devas:
Advantageous is taking refuge in the Buddha, the Dhamma & the Sangha...
Because of taking refuge in the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha some beings,
at the break-up of the body, after death, are reborn in a divine location,
in a heavenly world! There they surpass the other devas in ten respects:
In life span, in divine beauty, in divine happiness, in divine fame, in power,
and in enjoying divine forms, sounds, odours, tastes, & touchable objects!
Advantageous indeed is therefore this taking refuge in these 3 Jewels:
The Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha...



The 3 jewels: Buddha, Dhamma & Sangha

Comments:
Good to know for all beings, who do neither know from where they came,
nor what brought them there, and who do neither know, where they are
going after death, nor what causes, will bring them there!
There are 31 levels of existence. Take care!
