Can the true man enter mental states other than the four brahmaviharas (benevolence compassion empathetic joy equanimity) ?

These teachings like the Brahmavihara, the eightfold path, 37 factors of enlightenment - they are all special for moral teaching. They are being taught for people in society so that they may raise a good state of mind. So it cannot be said that someone enlightened does not have them, but for them to not stop anywhere is what is the teaching. Always being fresh, not pulling anything along.
