According to the Matangalila, Airaavatha was born when Brahma sang sacred hymns over the halves of the egg shell from which Garuda hatched, followed by seven more male and eight female elephants. One of his names means "the one who knits or binds the clouds" since myth has it that these elephants are capable of producing clouds.

In the 14th century, the heir apparent to the throne of the central Thai kingdom completed the first truly literary work of a Thai author. Phya Lithai entitled his work Sermon on the Three Worlds but it later became known as Three Worlds of King Ruang. It is the culmination of a long history of visionary and cosmological literature within the Theravada tradition, representing in a vivid and concise form, the religious universe within which Thai Buddhists have traditionally lived. In particular, the description of death and the fates which await beings who die in the thirty-one realms of the Three Worlds portray the process of dying and depict the relative absence of suffering and pollution at high levels of attainment.Because of the prestige of its author, its claim to orthodox authority and its strong popular appeal, this text exerted a powerful influence on the religious consciousness of the Thai, on their literary and artistic development and on their social and ethical attitudes. Despite harsh criticisms to which the texts have been subjected by a number of Buddhist modernists in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this influence has persisted to the present day. Thus, not only from a buddhological point of view, but also from a historical or anthropological perspective, it is no exaggeration to say that the Three Worlds of King Ruang is the most important and fascinating text that has been composed in the Thai language.Translation with Introduction and Notes by Frank E. Reynolds and Mani B. Reynolds.

A great read for anyone interested in the Buddhist realms. Really has you thinking about God, Heaven and what we might be missing from our understanding of the heavenly realms.

This is a classic translation of a very important Thai Buddhist text. If you thought Buddhism was all about meditating and mindfulness, think again! The Traiphum Phra Ruang is a complete cosmology, including vividly described heavens and hells. Anyone studying Thai Buddhism should thoroughly familiarize themselves with this text. Fortunately, Frank and Mani Reynolds have produced a wonderfully readable translation.

I'd looked for the English version of Tri Bhumi Phra Ruang for a long time. It's very hard to find even in Thailand. So I'm very glad to find this one and immediately ordered it. I recommend this book for anyone interested in concepts of different realms and gods (tevatas) in Thai culture.
