The answer is still a no. I addressed some details to show even the Gotama or Metteyya in their foremost run, are not superhuman.santa100 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 24, 2020 1:27 pmI think you're missing the point. The OP's question is whether it's possible for the concept of a Bodhisatta (like Guanyin/Avalokiteshvara) to exist in the Theravada worldview. And the answer is yes, there's Metteya Bodhisatta who's doing his work right now. And since the Theravada's Nikayas only place a constraint on the existence of 1 Buddha per world system at a time, if the multiple-universe of modern physics is true, then there's nothing wrong with many other Buddhas and many other Bodhisattas existing in many other world systems or universes.whynotme wrote:It seems that is not the case. The reason is time span.
If we consider Metteyya is the most important/powerful bodhisattva right now, then why pay homage to Guanyin? Why dont anyone pay homage to him, Metteyya? He has real name, real teacher, Guanyin got what? Nothing in history. Metteyya is the real deal, while Guanyin is a fake one. Like comparing gold with copper, Gotama or Metteyya are the real deals, while Guayin and Amitabha are fakes.
This is the trick of mahayana to steal the show. When the real Buddha sasana is still on Earth, why pay homage to Amitabha Buddha, an unreal fabricated Buddha.
Mahayana bodhisattvas are fake. A bodhisattva is an unenlightened being. So being unelightened, he can not help himself, how can he save other and the world like Guanyin? Fake, i call it fake.
A mahayana bodhisattva is a stupid being, where he refuses being enlightened to remain in samsara to help other. That idea is illogical, since the goal of a bodhisattva is striving for enlightenment in the first place, his whole effort is to be enlightened, and then the mahayana bodhisattva refuses to be enlightened. It is similar to someone who puts his whole effort into making money, and then he refuses the money, then what is his goal? He should learn mathematicals and logics before striving for other paramis of a Buddha, because he is fooling himself in another world system or universes. May he get qualification in physics to find a world system that is so illogical for himself to live and to fool ppl. Ah, maybe this Earth suits him, because ppl on Earth are so easy to be fooled by all the idea of mahayana. Maybe they are finding this planet for so long, and in the end they found a world system that fits their method. Its great isnt it? And then they drag all their gang here, Guayin, Amitabha, you may list some more stealers here that try to steal the sasana of Gotama.
Maybe there are other world system where bodhisattva and Buddha exist. But whoever they are, the bodhisattva on other planet can not be as important and smarter or helpful than the current bodhisattva on our planet.
Like a patient in a hospital hoping for a doctor on another hospital. Yes, there are doctors in other hospital, but they are not as helpful as the doctor in front of you, if they get the same qualification. All the idea of other world, other universe are just empty words to fake enlightenment. Enlightenment is right here right now, all the other place other time is the Mara illusion.
If Metteyya, our foremost being, is incapable of hearing the world to help ppl, then surely some unenlightened beings on another planets can not do it, in the hopeless situation of mahayana believers.
There is something called kamma. If Gotama can not help someone who is not kammic related to him, then surely on another planet, it is hopeless.
