Actually, the afterlife and the state or realm we experience after death are
not supernatural, but refers to actual fractally involved "coadunate but not
consubstantial" coenergetic fields of consciousness that are as real as the
fields of physical matter-energy we experience in life on Earth. The only
difference is that these fields are on subtler planes of reality that science
(string physics) now calls multidimensional fields of "hyperspace."
So, the esoteric Buddhist concepts -- with the knowledge that consciousness,
as the fundamental quality of eternal absolute space, never can cease to exist
-- are far more metaphysically scientific than the physical science that
supports atheism... But, for wrong reasons -- based on its unfounded and almost
religiously blind belief that matter is all there is, and that consciousness,
therefore, must be caused by it. Actually, unchanging consciousness
(awareness, will, etc.) is far more fundamental than ever changing physical matter.
When you learn the esoteric Buddhism that Buddha taught (as outlined in the
Secret Doctrine) and explained by the initiated Buddhist gurus, you will
understand how scientifically realistic Buddhism really is... And, that nothing is
"supernatural"-- except to the "scientists" and "skeptics" who can't explain
the sometimes expressed psychic phenomena... That is nothing more than focussed
and concentrated, mentally directed, coenergetic forces resonating between the
fields of higher (astral) and lower (physical) consciousness. This is the
basis of all so called "Magic," either white or black (depending on motive)
practiced by the Adepts. HPB called it "the correlation of occult forces" --
which on our physical plane is expressed, analogously, as gravity, strong, weak
and electromagnetic. Nothing "supernatural" in any of that... Although, it's
easy to be fooled into thinking so, if one is ignorant of the true
transcendent nature of fundamental reality -- in contrast to, yet parallel with its
simultaneous immanent nature.
As a theosophist however, one cannot be an "agnostic," or one who considers
that there might be a separate God entity that is above and beyond the universe
itself. Although, there is an admitted "Divine" or unknowable source of all
-- that is beyond the initial fundamental space which gave birth to this
universe... And that can never be comprehended by finite minds... But can be seen
by the "opened eye of the Dagma," or the fully enlightened Adept -- who can
observe it from the standpoint (center of origin) of the highest
(frequency-energy order) cosmic spiritual field. Such Adepts are called Chohans. And, all
of them are pantheists as well as atheists (in the sense of not believing in
any personal God outside of fundamental conscious nature itself).
Thus, everything in nature is conscious. And, having a "Buddha Nature"
refers to those "enlightened" ones who realize it in themselves. In theosophy,
this is called "self realization" or a true understanding of one's fundamental
nature or higher consciousness as being one with all consciousness -- both
universal and particular. Symbolically, consciousness can be likened to a point
source of light, such as a carbon arc, that consists of infinite rays of
photonic energy spherically radiating outward from the center... With each such
ray having the same qualities as the central source... And, if we consider its
"space" as being the surface of a gigantic spherical field, eventually
returning to that source... Just as we must do at the end of our present manvantara.
Good luck on your studies in Buddhism -- that could be greatly augmented by
parallel studies in theosophy -- which goes much deeper than many exoteric
Buddhist teachers, who are more interested in the dogmas, scriptures, and
religious practices of Buddhism, rather than the scientific philosophy underlying it.
I hope your Buddhist guru isn't one of them. :-)

fields of consciousness and how they relate to our inner natures, see:
