One occasionally comes across stories in the Buddhist canon like the story of Manduka (Sanskrit: frog) Devaputta (Sanskrit: son of devas) (Chronicle of the Buddhas, Page 1123) - a frog while listening to the Buddha's sermon, attains the Tavatimsa Deva realm when he is accidentally crushed by a member of the audience.
The story makes a big deal of the frog's deva mansion 12 yojanas long and fair deva maidens who wait on him day and night.
Do women who are born in the deva realm too get fair attendants who are men? Or are all devas men?
Why are the samsaric pleasures of a large palace and maidens the chief attraction of the deva realm? Don't the fair maidens of the deva realm get a lesser deal - having to wait on the devas - how do they make merit?
I know these are silly questions, little to do with the dhamma, but one wonders all the same.
These stories remind me of telemarketing slots on TV - "call now, and we will throw in this 12-spanner set for free."
