What body is this?

Postby DarwidHalim » Thu Oct 13, 2011 1:43 am

When Buddha gave Abhidhamma teaching, he was in Tusita Heaven. Tusita heaven is a higher realm in samsara. It is not a pure land.

My question is: what kind of body did he use when he appear in front of his mother and other audiences? Is it nirmanakaya form or sambogakaya form?
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!

Do you have any reference for this?
