 How long is Time Needed to Fulfill Parami?

To the question, "How long does it take to parami meet? "the answer is:
Minimum time needed to meet the parami is four asankhyeyya and one hundred thousand kappas; the medium is eight asankhyeyya and a hundred thousand kappa, and maximum time is sixteen asankhyeyya and a hundred thousand kappa, after receiving the prophecy will surely become a Buddha. (Only after satisfying parami during that time one can become a Buddha).

Three kinds of time required is related to three types of Future Buddha, namely, the Future Buddha Pannàdhika, Future Buddha Saddhàdhika, and the Future Buddha Viriyadhika. (Future Buddha Pannàdhika took four [[asankhyeyya] and a hundred thousand kappas, Future Buddha Saddhàdhika requires eight asankhyeyya and one hundred thousand kappas, and the Future Buddha Viriyadhika requires sixteen asankhyeyya and one hundred thousand kappas to meet parami in total).

To the question, "Everyone is the Future Buddha, why there are three different kinds of time in fulfilling parami? " the answer is:
An Upcoming Pannàdhika weak in faith and strong in wisdom: An Upcoming Saddhàdhika strong in the belief and medium in wisdom; One would Viriyadhika weak in wisdom. Only with the power of wisdom one can achieve wisdom. If a strong wisdom, faster attainment of Buddhahood, if weak, its achievements as well longer. So the difference is related to the level of wisdom the longer it takes to meet parami. (This

is the answer given in the commentary). Apare teachers mention that the difference of three durations This is because the three levels of effort, strong, medium, and weak.
The other teachers mention this distinction because the difference level-strong, medium, and weak-of maturity perfection that led to the Liberation (Vimutti paripàcaniya Dhamma).
Of the three this view, the opinion of the comments showed the most appropriate when we connect with the three types of Bodhisatta as follows:

Three Types Bodhisatta

The explanation: even when receiving such forecasts the story of the hermit Sumedha, Bodhisatta are three types:

(i) Bodhisatta Ugghatitannu,

(ii) Bodhisatta Vipancitannu, and

(iii) Bodhisatta Neyya.

Of the three types, the Bodhisatta Ugghatitannu are those who, if you want to achieve enlightenment as a student (Sàvaka Bodhi) in their lives while receiving prophecy, has services that are sufficient to achieve the holiness Arahatta and obtain six spiritual abilities (Abhinnà) and four level of analytical knowledge (Patisambhidà Nana) even before end of the third row of four lines in the stanza which expounded by the Buddha. Bodhisatta Ugghatitannu also called Pannàdhika; Bodhisatta of this type have the most powerful wisdom. Bodhisatta Vipancitannu are those who, if you want to achieve Enlightenment as a student in their present life receive forecasts, have adequate services to achieve Arahatta holiness and acquire six spiritual capabilities and four levels of analytical knowledge even before the end of the
 fourth line of four lines in a stanza that expounded by the Buddha.

Bodhisatta Vipancitannu also called Saddhàdhika; Bodhisatta type This has the medium wisdom .

Bodhisatta Neyya are those who, if you want to achieve Enlightenment as a student in their present life receive forecasts, have adequate services to achieve Arahatta holiness and spiritual ability to obtain six and four levels of analytical knowledge at the end of all four line in the stanza that expounded by the Buddha. Bodhisatta Neyya also called Viriyadhika; Bodhisatta this type have the wisdom the weakest.

All types of Bodhisatta has been determined to achieve Buddhahood during the kappa number of unaccounted amount before they receive definite predictions, and after accept the forecast they meet parami as it has been described earlier and attain Buddhahood within mentioned above.

Impossible Achieve Buddhahood In Faster Time Rice plants, flowering, fruiting, and cook only after time certain even if watered, and others, still will not be able to harvested faster than the time he needs. Likewise well as various types of Bodhisatta, impossible to achieve Buddhahood before they meet during the time parami certain although they strive daily to business exaggeration to meet Perfection (parami), sacrifice (CagA) and virtue through practice (cariya), for his wisdom they have not reached maturity, a collection of factors attainment of Buddhahood is not complete. Therefore, it should be understood that the parami must be met during the time mentioned above.
What Are the Benefits Provided by parami?

To the question, "What's the significance of parami?" the answer in brief is:

Benefits of parami is not reborn in Avici, and so on. The explanation:

Benefits of parami is: not born in eighteen realm (Abhabbatthàna) such as Avici, and others (to be described in more further in a separate section); ability to do business for the welfare of beings in the world; twenty miracles (such as described in Acchariya abbhuta Sutta of Sunnata Vagga, Uparipannàsa of Majjhima); obtaining all Bodhisatta desires, and other benefits such as expertise in arts and crafts, and others such as in Jataka stories and Buddhavamsa, and the like.

(The benefits associated with the fifteen pairs parami described in the section "What is the sum of the parami?" also is the benefit of parami).

Here is also a benefit of parami: From the aspiring goals to achieve Buddhahood, Bodhisatta willing to welfare of all creatures; as if a father to them have qualities that stand out, he feasible to be funded, worthy to be worshiped; He is like a good piece of land for a place to plant the seeds of services; He was loved by the gods and man; his heart full of love and compassion, He will not be harmed by wild animals such as lions, tigers, and others; a man who has exceptional service wherever he is reborn, he exceeds the creature other in terms of beauty, fame, happiness, strength, and power; He is free from disease; He has confidence, effort, attention, concentration, and wisdom that pure; He has a little defilements; He is easily corrected; He was patient and he rejoiced in doing good; He

do not show anger or hatred and pollute others; He did not compete with others, not envy, not jealous, not pretend, not a hypocrite; He did not boastful or arrogant; He calmly; He attentively in virtue: patience in dealing with crimes of others, he not revenge; wherever he is located, whether in the city, in the village, or in other places, they be free from hazards and disasters; whenever He was born (for example, in one life before he was born as Prince Temi) in an unfortunate situation in the states of woe like Ussada Niraya, unlike other residents there, he not experience severe pain but still developing deeper religious feeling.

Furthermore, he has a long life (ayu-sampadà), have good physical shape (Rapa-sampadà), has good family (kula-sampadà), has the advantage (issariya- sampadà), people trusted his words (adeyya vacanatà), power large (Mahànubhàvata), all of this is also a benefit Parami.
Have a long life (ayu-sampadà) is the age of life long in nature no matter where he was born; by having This, Bodhisatta understand it was a blessing that he virtue He developed the virtue to do so more again.

Having a good physical shape (Rapa-sampadà) is beauty physical. By having this creature-inspired Bodhisatta Another creature that appreciates physical beauty so that they have confidence against him.

Having a good family (kula-sampadà) was born in with a high-caste family. By having this, he approached by those who even boasted they birth, and others; so he can teach them to eliminate their arrogance.

Has the advantage (issariya-sampadà) are the hallmarks in terms of wealth, power, and followers. By having this, Bodhisatta can provide benefits to the four supporters objects to those who deserve it or punish those who deserve to be punished. His remarks trusted by others (adeyya vacanatà) is someone whose words can be trusted. By having this, Bodhisatta reliable like scales, impartiality as a ruler.

Big powers (Mahànubhàvatà) is power that large and spacious. By having this, he can not be conquered by others, while he resolve them fairly. Thus, all the achievements such as longevity, and so on, is the benefits generated by parami and is reasons for the growth of services that are not measurable and become a tool for beings to enter the three 'vehicles' and to ripen for those who have done so.

What Is the Fruit of parami?

To the question, "What Is the fruit of parami?" The answer in brief is: The fruit of parami is the nature and glory of the Buddha there are uncountable that starts from Arahatta-Magga Nana and the Omniscience of the Enlightenment; in other words, attaining Buddhahood is the fruit of Parami.

His explanation: that is to have a physical body (rupa-kaya) that decorated by many as a sign of thirty-two marks of human remarkable, and eighty minor signs (which will be explained Further in the history of the Buddha), the aura that emanates of her body shines as far as eighty sleeves even in the total darkness in the four conditions (midnight, moon, in middle of the forest, and under cloudy skies without flash), has body of Dhamma (Dhamma-kaya) formed above the physical body
and great with ten attributes such as strength (Dasabala Nana), four of courage (Catuvesàrajja Nana), six typical wisdom (Cha asàdhàrana dana), and eighteen typical qualities of a Buddha (Avenika-Dhamma).

((I) No obstacles with respect to knowledge of the past, (ii) does not there are obstacles in connection with the present knowledge, (iii) there is no barrier with respect to future knowledge; (Iv) all physical action is always preceded by wisdom; (V) all the words are always preceded by wisdom; (Vi) all his thoughts are always preceded by wisdom; (Vii) that will never recede; (viii) the spirit of the never receded; (ix) concentration that never subsided; (x) wisdom that has never subsided, (xi) never recede in the Dhamma, (xii) has never subsided in this exemption, (xiii) not kidding or joking, (xiv) does not made a big mistake, (xv) do not do things that are not can be assessed in terms of wisdom, (xvi) there are no things to be performed with the haste, (xvii) is not negligent, and (xviii) are not do things without consideration and reflection.) According to the following verse was quoted by the commentators: Buddhopi buddhassa bhaneyya vannam

Kappam pi ce annam abhasamàno
Khiyetha kappo cira digham antare
Vanno na khiyetha tathàgatassa
"So many signs of a Buddha so that
Another Buddha, who uses all the time in her life to explain the glory of a Buddha, will not be able to complete explanation. "All of these markers is the fruit of His parami.
In order to evoke feelings of devotion and respect for the glory of countless Buddhas, and invites this book readers to develop the virtues that leads to wisdom, I conclude this chapter with cites three verses and their meaning, which is spoken by Suruci
