i would like to know if there's any teachings/sutras mentioning what happends after all sentient beings attain buddhahood / enlightenment?
also if possible please state if it is theravada/mahayana/tibetan buddhism/zen or other school's teachings.
I imagine though that there would be a bohisattva out there that has vowed not to reach enlightenment until all the remaining bodhisattvas have reached enlightenment via their suffering!
If they were Greek they would rudely jostle and push past each other, use their personal sway with the door keeper to get in faster, argue and start a punch up and finally, after a few kalpas and a lot of needless stress, they would all cross over.Blue Garuda wrote:If the Bodhisattvas were English they would form an orderly queue and say 'after you', 'no, after you' -for a few kalpas. LOL

Conspiracy: what if i'm the only unenlightened being? and every being in this world including those in this forum are emanations of Buddhas?
i'm just kidding or should i be kidding
