Thus have I read / heard. VII The Six Planes of Existence Caused
by Unenlightenment

The Six States of Living Beings in Sasra

The Buddha said:

"Ananda, in the round of births and deaths in Sasra, birth is caused by the habits (of passions) and death by the flow of (retributive) transformation. (This is why) at the moment of death and before the heat completely leaves the body, all good and evil deeds of a lifetime suddenly re-appear to someone who is dead but on the point of being
reborn.

The realm of devas

If his mind is wholly thoughtful, it will fly in the air and he will be reborn in heaven. If in this flight it is filled with blessedness and wisdom strongly sustained by his pure vow, it will open to let him behold the pure lands of all Buddhas in the ten_directions; he will be reborn there as a result of his vow.

The realm of seers (rsi) and spirits

If his mind is more thoughtful than passionate, it will not be light enough for him to fly to distant places; he will be reborn as a flying i, a powerful king of ghosts, a flying yaka or an earthbound rkasa. He will be able to roam freely in the heavens of the four deva kings. If he is good natured and has taken a vow to protect my Dharma and those who observe the precepts, repeat the mantras, meditate and realize patient endurance, he will dwell beneath the throne of the Tathgata.

The realm of human beings

If his thoughts and passions are in equal proportions, he will neither rise nor sink, but will be reborn in the realm of human beings where his intelligence comes from the clearness of his thoughts and his stupidity from the dullness of his passions.

The realm of animals

If his passions exceed his thoughts, he will be reborn in the realm of animals where great passions create beasts with hair and fur and mild passions produce winged and feathered creatures.

The realm of hungry ghosts

If his passions and thoughts are in the proportion of seven to three, he will sink into the wheel of water close to the region of fire, will endure intense heat and be reborn as a hungry ghost whose body is constantly scorched by heat and drowned in water, so that he will suffer from hunger and thirst for hundreds and thousands of aeons.


The realm of hells

If his passions and thoughts are in the proportion of nine to one, he will sink into the wheel of fire and be reborn where wind and fire meet. He will dwell in the intermittent hell if his passions are great, in the unintermittent one if they are very strong, and in the avci hell if he is completely dominated by extremely violent ones. If in addition he slanders the Mahyna, breaks the Buddhas precepts, distorts theDharma when preaching it to deceive his patrons for selfish gain or for fame, and commits the five rebellious acts and ten grave sins he will be reborn (in turn) in all the avci hells.

Although the above are self-inflicted retributions re-sulting from individual evil deeds, all sinners endure the same
kinds of suffering which originate from (the same) concurrent causes."
