It is an Indian tradition that one becomes Buddha after a special ceremony in which a particular paint is pressed upon the place of the wisdom eye. After that, he is recognized as Master, Teacher, Enlightened Master and Buddha. This is the Indian way of enlightenment and wisdom eye-opening. After the wisdom eye-opening, one becomes Buddha.
Initiation is also a time of enlightenment and opening of the wisdom eye so you can see the light. This is the true enlightenment and wisdom eye-opening. When our Buddha eyes are open, we can see different worlds, and the higher worlds that we have never seen since our eyes have always been closed. Now it's open, so we can see. That's why it's called enlightenment and wisdom eye-opening. It used to be like this in India. Sandalwood powder was applied at the wisdom eye after the eye-opening, which shows that the person has already been initiated and enlightened.
Now that we want to become Buddha and Bodhisattva, we should sow Buddha and Bodhisattva's seeds. We should learn the demeanor and morals from Buddhas and Bodhisattva or God and saints. Outwardly, we should study these lessons first. Then inwardly, we should practice and reach the same spiritual level. We should have the same experience, then we can attain Buddha's fruit or saintly fruit.
