Refuge: The Winner move for Blinded Beings!!!

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

The 3 jewels: Buddha, Dhamma & Sangha
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!
