A Buddha sees things as they are, that is, he sees the true nature of things. This is proper mysticism as compared with the way an ordinary person, whose vision is obstructed by avidya, sees things.

Buddhism is not mysticism. Buddha taught Truth. There is nothing mystical about describing things as they truly are.

No matter how skilled, serene, compassionate, fruitful in cultivation or wise, some Buddhists make a baffling decision to reside solely in the psychophysical dimensions of mind, which have limits and conditions, and thereby cut themselves off from the unknowable unborn of Nirvana.
