For example, a cake might be the "body" (kaya) but the slices are the elements (dhātu).
In the case of the Dharmakaya (the Truth-Body, the All) then the elements would be things like matter, phenomena, concepts, etc, and are therefore, together, called Dharmadhātu (Truth-element)
All the slices of the cake are absolutely identical to the cake, but are given a different name, because they are conceived as slices rather than as a cake.
Hmmm... Interesting, but overly complicated, unnecessarily so. Well that's just my opinion. Thank you for bringing it to our notice.KevinSolway wrote:Tu-shun splits the Dharmadhātu, which is a single category, up into its various constituent elements.
