as far as I know, parinibbana is possible only for human beings becoming arahats
or anagamis, beeing reborn in suddhāvāsā and becoming arahats there.
Is that what the Suttas are telling?
Or did Buddha Gotama and/or other Buddhas also taught and had followers in deva-realms,
which then awakened and deseased from there, without having to become human again.
Does anyone know?
Be Well :)
"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -
