  1. If you're talking about some kind of supernatural ability , I don't know if anyone can answer for sure.

    But we can say for sure that the Buddha had an incredible energy potential-mainly because he worked hard on himself – which allowed him to go very far on the path of self-development. In this sense, the Buddha is one of the best examples to follow.

  2. In our world, basically, all people live in an illusory world and for this reason they believe and wait only for a ” miracle.” And they consider this miracle to be the presence of psychic powers, but this is only for those people who sleep in this world. Buddha is an enlightened person, a person who does not sleep and he sees our world not as an illusion, but as a very real world. He understands that there is no” miracle ” and cannot be. Reality is what the Buddha sees!!! Here's what you need to understand! With respect.

  3. Enlightenment is a side effect of developing consciousness. A person who has achieved enlightenment will have the ability to strongly influence living and inanimate matter, as he goes beyond the physical world, and his vibrations exceed it. Consciousness is primary, matter is secondary. That is why all the miracles attributed to the ascended masters are quite possible.

  4. The sutras have a whole section about superhuman abilities and how to develop them. This is Sanyutta Nikaya 51: Iddhipada Sanyutta. It lists the abilities of the Buddha and monks who have achieved success in practice. That is, it is argued that anyone with the right mindset can develop these abilities.

    The following abilities are listed:

    • By being one, he becomes many; by being many, he becomes one.
    • It appears. It disappears.
    • It passes unhindered through walls, bastions, and mountains, as if it were passing through empty space.
    • It dives in and out of the ground as if it were water.
    • It walks on water and does not sink, as if the water were dry land.
    • Sitting cross-legged, he flies through the air like a winged bird.
    • With his hand, he touches and strikes even the sun and moon, so strong and powerful is he.
    • It affects the body in such a way that It reaches even the Brahma worlds.
    • He hears through the divine ear, purified and superior to the human, various kinds of sounds: divine and human, far and near.
    • He knows the minds of other beings, other personalities, by directing his own mind to them. He distinguishes a mind with passion as a mind with passion, and a mind without passion as a mind without passion. He distinguishes a mind with malice as a mind with malice, and a mind without malice as a mind without malice. He distinguishes a mind with delusion as a mind with delusion, and a mind without delusion as a mind without delusion. He distinguishes a narrowed mind as a narrowed mind, an expanded mind as an expanded mind. He distinguishes an enlarged mind as an enlarged mind, and an exaggerated mind as an exaggerated mind. He distinguishes between a strong mind as a strong mind, and an unsurpassed mind as an unsurpassed mind. He distinguishes between a focused mind as a focused mind and an unfocused mind as an unfocused mind. He distinguishes between a liberated mind as a liberated mind and an unfettered mind as an unfettered mind.
    • He recalls many past abodes: one life, two lives, three lives, four, five, ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, one hundred, one thousand, one hundred thousand, many cycles of the world's disintegration, many cycles of the world's evolution, remembering: “There I had such and such a name, I lived in such and such a family, I had such and such an appearance. This was my food, this was my experience of pleasure and pain, this was the end of my life. After dying in that life, I came here. And there I also had such and such a name… that was the end of my life. Having died in that life, I have now appeared here.”
    • He sees through the divine eye, purified and surpassing the human eye, the death and rebirth of beings, he distinguishes the lower and the great, the beautiful and the ugly, the happy and the unhappy, according to their karma: “These beings who have behaved badly in body, speech and mind, insulted others, held wrong views and acted under the influence of wrong views, with the disintegration of the body, after death, are born in a state of deprivation, in bad But those beings who have had good behavior in body, speech, and mind, who have not offended others, who have held the right views, and who have acted under the influence of the right views, are born after the dissolution of the body, after death, in the good regions, in the heavenly worlds.”
    • He, by destroying the stains of mental defilements, enters and remains in this very life in untainted liberation of the mind, liberation by wisdom, knowing and manifesting these states for himself independently through direct knowledge.

    These are the physical and mental superpowers described. At the end of the section on superpowers, there are things that are the goal of this development and examples of things that are eliminated during the development process.

    The goal is: nirvana, no death. And hatred, thirst for existence, illusions are eliminated. If a person aspires to sense gratification, to a habitual existence, or to eternal life as some developed powerful being, he should give up such aspirations as hindrances that distract from the correct concentration of the mind.

    That is, the listed abilities are as if side effects in the development of the main ability-direct knowledge of reality. To develop these abilities, one must follow the rules of the eightfold path: be wise, moral, and disciplined, and give up hatred, greed, addiction, and self-centered illusions. Then the mind is ready for proper concentration. And if a person seeks to develop superpowers to provide some kind of pleasure, pleasant feelings, then he will not succeed, because these same feelings will disturb, interfere with the correct concentration of the mind.
