I hope this post answers any question. I suggest that you should not seek to learn anything about me, and none of us should seek to learn anything about Buddha's achievement, only we should seek to understand the nature of the conditions that led to his enlightenment and the subsequent diagnoses to help us understand the path. In consistency with this, I must advice you all to disregard my claim to attainment, and to focus on any reasonable explanations I can provide on the nature of my path to self realizations.
The reason why I previously stated that I felt there could be more to do, is upon correctly diagnosing the nature of enlightenment with the inspiration that perhaps, ''it is due to this self reflective process that one uncovers this state of being, perhaps there are more conditions along the path that that will lead to further states of realization'' a flame would be held to this thought, however, further external studying has confirmed the internal realization that this state of unperturbed meditation is the final resting ground that follows the elimination of that which is not necessary.
I must also contribute that in regards to there being more to do, there is more to do, one must continue to eat a healthy diet, and drink enough water, among other things, for, if this was not achieved, the experience of the nature of the realized mind would be affected the the vibrational level of ones body.
Also, when discussing Buddhism with a friend when at the age of 18, my explanation of my permanent state of meditation was viewed with obscurity, which was contradictory to my view that all beings experienced this thing. It would appear the achievement of realization of nirvana occurred more recently as a result of a few years of applied action, which to clarify, was never committed in consideration of any buddhist doctrine or seeking or expectation of nirvana.
