Question from a non-Buddhist for the Buddhist perspective on aspiring to be a deva/deity v. aspiring to be a Buddha/Bodhisattva

Hello everyone,

I'm quite familiar with most of Buddhism's teachings and schools and such. I myself lean strongly away from Buddhism primarily for the reasons that motivate my question and that related to my primary point of contention with Buddhism.

My primary question is if anyone has any quotes/links to sutras where the Buddha or Buddhist writers discusses the disadvantages of being reborn as a deva/deity, especially of the Nimmanarati/Nirmanaranti kind. These are described as devas/deities that 'create the five sense objects themselves and enjoy them', 'enjoying that which they have themselves created'.

To me, this sort of status seems absolutely ideal - basically omnipotently able to fabricate reality around you to satisfy your desires.

In contrast, Buddhism teaches that even this is not a place of ideal or ultimate abiding, and instead points to meditative concentration and stillness in the formless realms as superior places of abiding for devas. And superior even to that is the status of an arhat/buddha.

What I'm interested in is scriptual references discussing the disadvantages of abiding in the form realm as a deity, as well as hearing your general perspectives on this. If there is a better subreddit in which to post this, please let me know or point me in that direction.

Thank you for your attention

'A passerby, struck by the Buddha's serene presence, asks him, "What are you? Are you a deva? A spirit? A human being?" The Buddha's now-famous reply has made this one of the most oft-quoted passages in the entire Canon.'

On one occasion the Blessed One was traveling along the road between Ukkattha and Setabya, and Dona the brahman was also traveling along the road between Ukkattha and Setabya. Dona the brahman saw, in the Blessed One's footprints, wheels with 1,000 spokes, together with rims and hubs, complete in all their features. On seeing them, the thought occurred to him, "How amazing! How astounding! These are not the footprints of a human being!"

Then the Blessed One, leaving the road, went to sit at the root of a certain tree — his legs crossed, his body erect, with mindfulness established to the fore. Then Dona, following the Blessed One's footprints, saw him sitting at the root of the tree: confident, inspiring confidence, his senses calmed, his mind calmed, having attained the utmost control & tranquility, tamed, guarded, his senses restrained, a naga.[1] On seeing him, he went to him and said, "Master, are you a deva?"[2]

"No, brahman, I am not a deva."

"Are you a gandhabba?"

"No..."

"... a yakkha?"

"No..."

"... a human being?"

"No, brahman, I am not a human being."

"When asked, 'Are you a deva?' you answer, 'No, brahman, I am not a deva.' When asked, 'Are you a gandhabba?' you answer, 'No, brahman, I am not a gandhabba.' When asked, 'Are you a yakkha?' you answer, 'No, brahman, I am not a yakkha.' When asked, 'Are you a human being?' you answer, 'No, brahman, I am not a human being.' Then what sort of being are you?"

"Brahman, the fermentations by which — if they were not abandoned — I would be a deva: Those are abandoned by me, their root destroyed, made like a palmyra stump, deprived of the conditions of development, not destined for future arising. The fermentations by which — if they were not abandoned — I would be a gandhabba... a yakkha... a human being: Those are abandoned by me, their root destroyed, made like a palmyra stump, deprived of the conditions of development, not destined for future arising.

"Just like a red, blue, or white lotus — born in the water, grown in the water, rising up above the water — stands unsmeared by the water, in the same way I — born in the world, grown in the world, having overcome the world — live unsmeared by the world. Remember me, brahman, as 'awakened.'

Comprar apartamentos dos anos 80s-90s, alguma coisa que deva saber? É de evitar se possível, ou só preconceito?

Olá!

Estou no mercado há pouco tempo para comprar um apartamento em volta de Lisboa, desde ao longo da linha de Sintra até Alhandra, orçamento de 120k. Vejo muita oferta para este preço de casas que até parecem boas por dentro, remodeladas, visitei algumas delas, mas fico sempre muito de pé atrás relativamente ao prédio em si. Algumas são casas dos 90, mais ainda dos anos 80.

Tenho um preconceito forte sobre a qualidade actual de prédios construídos há quase 40 anos atrás, e o quanto poderão aguentar nos anos seguintes. Principalmente no que toca a isolamento, sempre sofri com vizinhos barulhentos e casas quentíssimas no verão.

Há alguma razão nesta minha queixa? São prédios dessas alturas algo a evitar tendo em conta que em teoria, poderiam ter uma construção pior do que algo construído mais recentemente tipo 2000 para cima, pior isolamento, etc? Existe algo relevante de todo, que deva saber? A verdade é que não tenho muita informação do meu lado ou pessoas entendidas a quem possa recorrer, portanto venho aqui à procura de pessoas com mais conhecimento do que eu.

Se alguém souber algo de todo, muito obrigado.

About the Deva Harihara. What is he?

I have been reading up on Hinduism and considering conversion and came across the rare syncretic deity Harihara who is a joint Vishnu and Shiva. I do not quite understand what he is, is he the personification of the two working together, a claim that one is the avatar of another, a fusion of the two?, or the claim that they are one entity that has an aspect called Shiva and one called Vishnu that communicate with different people for different reasons. Personally I find this last idea similar to something like Minerva Sulis and Zeus Amun and find it to be the most tenable philosophically. Let me kmow your thoughts?

Theory: the 4 dark devas are dead

I believe the 4 dark devas of destruction are actually dead. If the sdr2 kids did things to make themselves go into further despair, gundham as a remnant of despair probably killed his hamsters. In the dr3 op with all the remnants, the hamsters are nowhere to be seen, replaced by a snake. The snake probably ate them. Since sdr2 takes place in a simulation those hamsters were fake.

Tldr; Gundham has a snake eat his hamsters so he can go into despair and the ones in the simulation are fake

Thoughts of the Deva's power scaling in Tamers?

Is it just me or are most of the Devas absolute fodder in Tamers? Especially the snake and the mouse. They get thrown around by three champions in a way I feel we usually don't see Ultimates. Am I the only one that thinks this?
