TheWaiting wrote:Ive heard of several different spiritual states which buddhist aspire to and seem very distinct from eachother but their specific differences seem a bit fuzzy too me. Among them are buddhas, arahant, bodhisattvas, and I beleive a few others. Can someone please clearly explain these too me. Both what they mean and their relation to one another (ex. if your a arahant do you have to be a bodhisattvas and if not can you be both at the same time?). As what the sub-forum says Im mostly concern what the scripture and specificly what Buddha himself says but a level of personal interpretation is welcome.
