Most recently when Nelson Mandela died, rainbows appeared over his bodies resting place. Its interesting because he is considered a Bodhisattva by many and was close to the Dalai Lama.
Raibow is a weather condition related appearance that has to do with the light spectrum. Not sure how you can connect this phenomenon with an actual physical body transubstantiation and/or how the rainbow proves anything. What I am up to is eliminating all possibility we are dealing with an illusory and not a factual, but rather mythical circumstantiality. And I have long time been taking it all for granted, but I have some reasons to believe the whole thing is a fable
Many others have reported, even sometimes entire villages, similar phenomena at the passing of a great master. None of this is "evidence" but if its a real phenomena, interestingly enough
Im sure government agencies have well documented info on it. I wonder what they think of it, if they do know its real...
Yes, that kind of something would also be of benefit. I was looking for something similar over the whole internet, but so far, nothing of a real value. We're still dealing with smoke and mirrors here, whatever you may think. So many tibetans allegedly passed away into rainbow body but the maximum we are shown is the piece of shroud in which something is wrapped into. Forgive me, I am quite inquisitive and very skeptical person and have very good reasons for it.
It doesn't really matter if its real or not.
In general if you don't believe in it you should keep that lack of belief to yourself so that you dont harm the faith of others.
Totally missing the point, dear friend. Removing the bias and fraud, should be an obligation for any dharma follower. There is no compensation for lack of honesty - IF that is the case and the phenomenon of rainbow body is nothing but a fabrication. Make no mistake, I AM NOT CLAIMING THAT IT IS, but I want to find out. There is probably equal amount of clues that it may be a real thing as there are clues that it is a fabrication. Therefore, I am humbly posing the question and am not interested in hearing about rainbows, Nelson Mandelas and "someone said something once upon a time somewhere, maybe, I heard, or my firend..."
At the same time, even if you do believe in it, clinging to it as an idea or goal will actually prevent such a manifestation from happening since one must learn to be beyond fear of not attaining and hope of attaining realization in order to achieve the ultimate transformation.
I base nothing on any kind of belief system and in this case I wish to demand a factual observation.
The main goal is to simply recognize and then remain in the true nature of mind. From that all accomplishment will come forth naturally. Thats how you attain the deathless state, the citadel of unchanging awareness. That is how you are of most benefit to yourself and others. If there is a rainbow body to be attained, thats how it will be attained.
I am sure you must know there is a litlle more to it, since so many persons lived in the natural state but haven't gone into the thin air just because of that. And I am well familiar how it is allegedly attained and understand the modus operandi and in fact, do not see any conceptual problem with it. The circle is completed when there is a first direct observation that it ever takes place at all so I may take thodgal a bit more seriously. Until then it is a belief system of its kind, regarding the possibility of the end result. Even despite so many great authorities mention it.
Thanks kindly for your reply, anyway.
