A Buddhist temple in Thailand says it has pinpointed Steve Jobs’ whereabouts in the afterlife, and the late Apple co-founder is a mid-level angel living in a parallel universe (but still in California).
Wat Phra Dhammakaya made the revelations on its website in a post titled “Where Is Steve Jobs.”
The abbot of the temple, Phrathepyanmahamuni, came to learn of Jobs’ posthumous fate through meditation, the Bangkok Post reported. The abbot says Jobs is “a half Witthayathorn [a knowledge-seeking angel], half Yak [the Thai word for giant],” which is a mid-level angel. Since his death in October 2011, Jobs has been living a cushy afterlife in a six-story building “made of white, silver metal and crystal glass” not far from Apple headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., the Post reported.
According to the report, the temple said Jobs has 20 servants as a result of his “worldly virtue. The temple also said the claims about Jobs were intended to teach the law of karma to followers and “not meant to defame or insult any parties.”
Jobs died last year at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He has been credited with revolutionising everything from personal computing to music to phones.
