Vajra Guru mantra is probably the simplest way.

Has anyone read Namkhai Norbu's book "Rainbow Body?" I am wondering if it is just a straightforward account of this practitioner's life as best as can be pieced together or if it is something a bit more with insightful teachings and hints at things maybe never before gleaned about rainbow body.

I knew a girl once who painted her whole body the colors of the rainbow.

I miss her a lot ;)

It's a straightforward account of the practitioner's life. No special hints about rainbow body. But a good read.

Well, the methods of Vajrayana and Dzogchen are for this purpose.

Well, Dzogchen Thögel has that for purpose ... therefore it is not to be discussed on a forum.
