Svetaketu (Pali: Setaketu), who was reborn as Siddhartha, who would become the Buddha Sakyamuni; since then the Bodhisattva has been Natha (or Nathadeva) who will be reborn as Ajita and will become the Buddha Maitreya (Pali Metteyya). While this Bodhisattva is the foremost of the dwellers in Tusita, the ruler of this world is another deva called Santusita (Pali: Santusita). The beings of this world are 3,000 feet (910 m) tall and live for 576,000,000 years (Sarvastivada tradition). The height of this world is 320 yojanas above the Earth.
