I read somewhere that one of the least skillful questions you can ask is what special powers a Buddha has. Please forgive me then for the following question, and please understand I have reasons for asking it, which I'll explain shortly.
Does a Buddha know EVERYTHING there is to know, including all the cosmology of the universe etc., or does He/She only know everything about the mind? The reason I'm asking is that I want to know whether I can put my trust in the buddhas teachings about the cosmology of the universe - reincarnation, no creator God etc. These issues are important to me though I suspect they are not as important to all of you. The other aspects of Buddhism - mainly how to end suffering, are obviously more important to me, but the cosmological issues are too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thankyou all my friends,
