[N.B. This is the forum that was called ‘Exploring Buddhism’. The new name simply describes it better.]
I replied. "Wanting to be reborn is like wanting to stay in a jail cell, when you have the chance to go free and experience the whole wide world. Does a convict, on being freed from his shabby, constricting, little cell, suddenly say "I really want to go back to jail and be put in a cell. It sounds pretty cool. Being able to come back. Who wouldn't want that?"
Red Faced Buddha wrote:Can a deity(referring to an enlightened being,not a deva.)grant you a boon?I heard Green Tara(or maybe White Tara,they're so many of them it's easy to mix them up .)can grant you a boon,so does that mean all Buddhas and Bodhisattva can and/or will grant someone a boon?
If you have strong faith in a deity, yes.
That being said, wisdom deities are not entities living in some distant place.
At least, I think so
