rate 5. T'ien; (Chinese; "Heaven"); In indigenous Chinese religion, the supreme power reigning over humans and lesser gods. The term refers to a deity, to impersonal nature, or to both. As a god, Tian is an impersonal power, in contrast to the supreme ruler Shangdi, but the two are closely identified and their names are sometimes used synonymously. In later references, Tian is likened to nature or fate. Scholars generally agree that Tian was the source of moral law, but they long debated whether Tian responded to pleas and rewarded and punished human actions or whether events merely followed Tian's order and principles.

The term also refers to the celestial sphere, the place of the sun, moon, planets and stars and the source of light, which symbolizes good. For later Judaism and Christianity, heaven is the destination of the faithful after a general resurrection of the dead, in contrast to hell, the place of punishment for the wicked. Islam has a similar belief. In Chinese religion, heaven is equated with the divine will, which guides the operation of all physical and moral laws.

rate 7. kingdom of heaven
rate 8. Temple of Heaven
rate 9. kingdom of heaven; In Christianity, the spiritual realm over which God reigns as king, or the eventual fulfillment of God's will on earth. Although rare in pre-Christian Jewish literature, the idea of God as king was fundamental to Judaism and Jewish ideas on the kingdom of God most likely shaped New Testament usage. The term is often used in the New Testament and it was a central theme in the preaching of John the Baptist and Jesus. Theologians differ as to whether Jesus implied that the kingdom had arrived in his person or whether it was expected as a future event. Christian orthodoxy now holds that the kingdom has been partially realized by the presence of the church in the world and that it will be fully realized after the Last Judgment.
rate 10. the dwelling place of God, gods or other spiritual beings and the abode or state of being of the saved, the elect or the blessed in the afterlife or in the time after the Last Judgment. The term also designates the celestial sphere or spheres in contrast to the earth (the dwelling place of man) and to the underworld (the abode of the damned), often called hell. As celestial space, heaven also is the place of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars, all of which give and symbolize light, a quality of the sacred and the good, as opposed to darkness, the quality of the underworld and evil. The concept of heaven is interpreted in various ways in the different religions of the world. In the Old Testament heaven is regarded as the abode of Yahweh, the God of the Israelites; because he also is heaven's creator, he transcends the celestial sphere. Until the 3rd-2nd century BC, Israelites generally did not view heaven as the abode of those who, died but rather believed that all men (good and evil) slept in Sheol, the underworld, which was a place of neither pain nor pleasure, punishment nor reward. In later Judaism, however, heaven came to be viewed as the postmortem destination of the righteous, who would be resurrected to live with God. Christianity, coming out of this matrix of Judaism, viewed heaven as the destination of the true believers and followers of Christ. Some of the more recent interpretations view heaven symbolically as a state of life with Christ, rather than as a place to which the elect or the saved go after death. Islam, influenced by Judaism and Christianity, views heaven as a place of joy and bliss to which faithful Muslims go, according to the will of Allah (God). In the Qur'an, the Islamic scriptures, there are references to the belief that everyone must go through or pass by hell before reaching heaven. In the Eastern religions, concepts of heaven vary considerably, some being similar to Western religious views and others being very dissimilar. The Chinese Heaven (T'ien; q.v.) is the guardian of the moral laws of man and the physical laws of nature. T'ien also is synonymous with the divine will. In some Mahayana (Greater Vehicle) Buddhist sects, such as the Pure Land sect, heaven is a "Western Paradise" for those who have received the saving grace of Amitabha, a buddha (enlightened one) who vowed to save all living creatures. Orthodox Buddhists, especially those of the Theravada (Way of the Elders), do not usually speak of heaven, but rather of Nirvana, the state of existence in which there is an extinction of desires. In Hinduism there are many and varied concepts of heaven. Worshippers of Vishnu, the Preserver, for example, believe that they will go to a heaven in which there is no suffering, fear or death and that they will be able to live in the glory of Vishnu's eternal light.
