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-

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.
Amitābha Buddha!

The Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have unobstructed vision in all directions. Everything is in their presence; and I stand in front of them. -- Shantideva

I support Mingyur R and HHDL in their positions against Lama abuse.
