Are there any theologians throughout history who have held that the devas are incapable of sinning?

Can anyone find any quotations from scholars expressing such a view?

Even if you disagree and think that devas can sin, please provide quotes that say otherwise.

  • please use hindu rather than christian questions in your terminology. 'Sinning" is a christian concept. In Hinduism there is karma. New karma is only accumulated during an earthly existence. When a jiva is a deva, it is not capable if accumulating new karma, only using karma gained during an earthly existence. Nov 28, 2022 at 5:31
  • So if devas cannot accumulate karma, and if karma accumulates from moral choices, does that mean devas cannot make moral choices? Nov 29, 2022 at 3:10
