The goddess flys business class.

"Statues of three deities, including a 1.8m statue of the Chinese sea goddess Mazu, were flown in on business class from China to Malaysia, major Chinese dailies reported.

The statues arrived at the Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday (July 1) under the China-Malaysia Mazu Cultural Exchange programme."

Chih-I:
The Tai-ching states "the women in the realms of Mara, Sakra and Brahma all neither abandoned ( their old) bodies nor received (new) bodies. They all received buddhahood with their current bodies (genshin)" Thus these verses state that the dharma nature is like a great ocean. No right or wrong is preached (within it) Ordinary people and sages are equal, without superiority or inferiority

Doesn't the Vimalakirti Sutra actually show that goddesses get their power from the power of Sariputra?
