Six Realms of Existence

In ancient Buddhist and pre-Buddhist cosmology, a deva is a god-like being residing in the Heaven Realm; like Greek or Roman gods, devas are far from perfect or omniscient beings, and often have their own agendas. According to the Six Realms cosmology, devas also live a long time but not forever.
