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.
