Beautifully presented posts. Its interesting when a poster makes beautifully presented posts about Hinduism but presents answers to questions about Buddhism looking like a dog's breakfast. Hare Krishna.
Exploring Theravāda's connections to other paths - what can we learn from other traditions, religions and philosophies?
There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.
There are infinite infinite Spiritual Universes outside of the Saha world. There are a limited amount of material Universes, which are also Emanated from the infinite, these material worlds being in a little puddle of illusion, there being the small coconut shell of the Saha world. However, just because something is infinite doesn't mean it won't transform. And only Nibbana and Buddhahood, and Metta is infinite. Even the compassion in the small space between you and the ceiling emanates from the infinite, and all Loving form, every Loving thought comes from the Stream of Nirvana, but those unenlightened beings feeling this Metta as a part of themselves, hold back the rest of who they are from crushing mind with mind to attain Enlightenment, but then when they are preached the Dhamma with acceptance they become beings of uncompromising compassion, crushing mind with mind, attaining Nibbana, holding nothing back from Enlightening themselves.
According to Vaishnava philosophy there is an infinite everlasting Spiritual World where the planets are many, many times bigger than this Universe, and that's where we are all from originally. Buddhism helps us to back there too while achieving the highest level of perfection. As soon as one returns they achieve Brahma Nirvana according to the philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita.
Nirvana is everything in the Spiritual World. To some degree it is a provisional term with regards to full extinction, and Buddhahood is considered full extinction, but everyone in the Spiritual World feels a degree of the Stream.

you resemble a mad scientist
… I reject the ideas
I understand. It is just that in my tradition we consider the Speaker of the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna, to have come as Lord Buddha as well. When one person sees these two people as the Same, the Teachings complement eachother. One has to be a very serious student though.
