Can Devas become Buddhas or Bodhisattva?I get how they have all kinds of distractions(more than humans supposedly.)but I don't get how they can't find enlightenment in their current lifetime.I've heard some people say devas can't become enlightened in their current lifetime but that doesn't make much sense,so I'd like to ask you(Your personal theories on the subject are welcome.)
A person once asked me why I would want to stop rebirth. "It sounds pretty cool. Being able to come back. Who wouldn't want to be reborn."
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?"
