Gigantic heavenly beings

Can you imagine how huge heavenly beings are? Well, according to a dharma talk I listened to, the beings in the 28th layer of heavenly realm measures 320,000 miles in height. As the moon is 240,000 miles from the Earth, such beings can literally stand on Earth and hold the moon on his palm. This is how gigantic heavenly beings are.

The Chinese saying that 'there are 'tian' outside 'tian', 'tian' being heavenly layers is certainly true in this case.

So much for heavenly beings in this post.
