So do you guys accept the idea that realized beings are able to benefit sentient beings post-mortem?
i do, but what i consider as "benefit" is transmission -of knowledge-
"Don't profess a view you haven't realized!
Since the view is devoid of viewing, mind essence is an expanse of great emptiness.
Since the meditation is without meditating, leave your individual experience free from fixation.
Since the conduct is without acting, it is unfabricated naturalness.
Since the fruition is without abandoning or achieving, it is the dharmakaya of great bliss.
These four sentences are words from my heart:
Contradict them and you fail to discover the nature of Ati Yoga."


Guru Padmasambhava.
From "Advice from the Lotus-Born".

Yes. If they couldn't there would be no point to attaining complete enlightenment, and escaping samsara itself would suffice. :)

Yes, otherwise why do we pray to Guru Rinpoche, Garab Dorje, etc. for blessings, empowerments, etc.

I think they can manifest in multiple forms, places, and manners as need arises and karma permits.

Fourthed from another tradition.
Supplications related to Dharma or benefiting beings produce such uncanny results that I had to admit my skepticism was no longer wise.
With a heart wandering in ignorance down this path and that, to guide me I simply say Namu-amida-butsu. -- Ippen

If in your heart you hold the thought, "I shall continue to utter the nembutsu," the Buddha will turn his attention to you, and thus you are one among those who are thought about and cherished. -- Master Hōnen

The Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have unobstructed vision in all directions. Everything is in their presence; and I stand in front of them. -- Shantideva, Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life
