De Men's Questions:
1. What group do you belong to or how would you categorize your main practice?
2. How would you define "Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya, and Nirmanakaya" and how would one differentiate them in meditation?
3. The word Buddha means "one who becomes conscious".  Can you explain what this word really means?
4. When one realizes samadhi, vipassana, and wisdom of emptiness, what is left to be learned or experienced?
5.  From your "Knowing" and "Seeing", what is the quickest way to achieve full enlightenment?

Lestrange,

I know, it's the negative karmic energy that we have to absorb...for others.
Don't worry about my questions.
May all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in this infinite space be with you!

De Men

I practice samyak samadhi.
Those words I believe that you have found somewhere in books so just keep reading or go on google and you will understand it.
Yes, it's simple, people who meditate are more conscious, so I'll let you figure that out.
Many things you can always learn something and experience something more.
"What's the fastest way to eat?"
"What's the fastest way to run?"
"What's the fastest way to breathe?"
Everybody has their own pace there is no long or short path in meditation. You have good karma or you don't. You either see it or you don't, give it time and go your own pace.

Thank you for your response!  I'm glad you're back...
Conceptually I've read and learned most of these already.  Now, I'm in the "practice" mode to gain the experiential realizations.

You're right!  When the mind is still, it's simple.
