Like I pointed out before its obvious Vajradhara and the other Vajrayana Buddhas have not perfected this path due there still being suffering sentient beings.
According to the teachings on Buddha Nature, when someone becomes totally enlightened they can see the Buddha Nature, the enlightened essence, in everyone else also. Thus for the enlightened person, the unenlightened appear as enlightened also.
It's a bit of a cop-out, but doctrinal nevertheless.
Only the doctrinal Hinayana (enlightenment for oneself) Buddha can be taken seriously.
The Vajrayana/Mahayana Buddhas seem to be just flowery nonsense.
If the Gurus could be more practical I think the practitioners realizations would speed up on the path of Vajrayana/Mahayana.
The flowery teachings seem out of date and get in the way of realizations.
