Where are you getting this "realm" business from?

For a Buddha, they deal with the same stuff everyone else does, but they are free from clinging, and so free from craving and aversion, no longer influenced by them. An awakened person interacts with the same world, but without pushing or pulling, or stress. That's it.

I am retiring to bed to review some past tense Irish verbs and to lay in the lap of Nyx, to dream dreams. So, I'll respond to whatever when I acheive awakening in this AM.

Do you Sherab have direct and personal knowledge that these realms actually exist ?

It seems to me that my question is clear and straightforward.

I don't think anyone would disagree with the idea that all minds have the potential for awakening, which I understand to be the gist of the Original Mind and Buddha Nature stuff, but I think the problem is when all sorts of other weird stuff get added into that. I'm not talking about anyone in particular, but it happens.
