All well and good for spirituality, but I would hazard a guess that charitable contributions don't erase being a narcissistic magalomaniac who tries to eke every penny out of their supply chain and workforce, especially when suicides and negative health effects stem from it.

Ohh my.

What do Thai Monks know about tech? I thought Monks lived their lives the old way, away from technology.

Something about this seems very off.

Yeah... supposedly Asian monks are not supposed to own any gadgets. They're supposed to restrict themselve from any materialistic need/want and keep living their life to the simplist.

Yes something seems wrong here,I don't think any Buddhist practice would agree that an individual who'declared nuclear war' on a fellow human or company while also simultaneously looking to maximise full potential material possession and wealth extracted in his earthly days from those in a less fortunate position than himself would be considered a divine or highly ascended being

Most of the monks we see nowadays barely practices any of the traditional practices (altho they SHOULD). They drive cars, watch tv, use iPod eat spaghetti and pizzas... They are living the life, in a very vegetarian way. Not to mention many of them are unbelievably rich.

I am skeptical of this as Jobs left behind bad karma - in the afterlife that is not good.

"Apart from that the new divine being has about 20 celestial servants at his service which comes from karma he obtained from charitable nature during his human form like donating money, objects and knowledge for others and society."
Wow!!!!

I bet that in this parallel universe he uses an Android phone, and has Linux installed on his custom-made PC. :)

There are ignorant and stupid and arrogant monks who claim to know everything.

where is Jobs now: he is in paradise of course as god has pardoned him for trying to destroy Android.
