Once the souls of the deceased received Tien-Tao, where
would they go?
Once the souls of the deceased receive Tien-Tao, their names are deleted from
hell and are registered in Heaven. They will go to the Hall of Self Improvement
in the Monastery of Heaven. After practicing in there for a hundred days, the
souls will be restored to full yang or full radiance. At this time, God sends the
San-guan Da-di to rank them according to the virtues of the souls while they
were humans and the virtues and merits of their descendants. This is why even
though every soul can become an Immortal, a Buddha, a Saint, or a Sage, the
peerage ordained is in accordance with his practices of Tao, his virtues, as well
as his merits.
