Emptiness, dependent origination, karma, rebirth, five elements, eight consciousnesses, five wisdoms, five aggregates, etc.
Garab Dorje is an emanation of Shakyamuni Buddha.
This is new to me. Is this somewhere in a Dzogchen teaching from Prahevajra mentioned, or somewhere else in Garab Dorjes commentaries?
Well, Shakyamuni Buddha is an emanation of Vajrasattva. Garab Dorje is an emanation of Varjasattva. Shakyamuni predicted Garab Dorje. This is detailed well in the lineage historys in Dzogchen Nyinthig.
[color=#0080FF]Yes i know that Kuntu Zangpo is here the primordial source and that would not be Buddha Shakyamuni[./color]
Samantabhadra is the dharmakāya of all Buddhas.
Anyway, we don't have to get too linear about all of this.
