Buddhist Cosmology

I found this to be interesting. A part of Buddhism that generally gets left out, in the West at least.

(I don't know how to get the video to appear in the post, so here's the link).
Therein what are 'six (types of) disrespect'? One dwells without respect, without deference for the Teacher; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Teaching; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Order; one dwells without respect, without deference for the precepts; one dwells without respect, without deference for heedfulness; one dwells without respect, without deference for hospitality. These are six (types of) disrespect.

Recollection of devas is one of the group of six recollections used in gladdening (inspiring) the mind on occasion when the mind needs preparatory work. Different subsidiary themes are utilised to steady the mind when that is required.
