The Deva Path (天道, Tendō) grants the user the ability to manipulate attractive and repulsive forces. When used by Pain, the Deva Path was channelled into the body of his deceased friend, Yahiko.
This Path grants the user the ability to manipulate attractive and repulsive gravitational forces of objects or people. These techniques, however, cannot be performed in rapid succession; the amount of time required to recharge after use varies depending on the scale of the technique used. The Deva Path also grants another ability: Chibaku Tensei which allows the user to create a huge makeshift terrestrial body from all the surrounding matter that is attracted to a black sphere released by this technique.
In the anime, Nagato's Deva Path demonstrated the ability to levitate prior to levelling Konoha and during his battle against Naruto in his six-tailed state.
In Buddhism, the Deva realm is the realm of bliss. The Deva realm is sometimes also referred to as the "god's realm" because, compared to humans, its inhabitants are so powerful that they could be compared to deities. However, beings born into the Deva realm are still subject to reincarnation. Devas suffer from pride and the knowledge that their long lives and powers will not prevent their eventual rebirth.
