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.
Namu Amida Bu Namu Amida Bu Namu Amida Bu

"If sentient beings are touched by His radiance, their three afflictions will be eliminated and their bodies and minds will become gentle. They will be filled with joy and exuberance as benevolence arises in their minds. If those who are in extreme suffering, taking any of the three evil life-journeys, see this radiance, they can rest, no more pain or distress. After their death, they will be saved." -- Sutra of Amitāyus Buddha

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