So I'm rereading Introduction to Tantra by Lama Yeshe. In his discussion on the Development Stage, he ties the Three Kayas in with the three stages of visualization.
I'm never heard of this before. Is this Orthodox, or just something Lama Yeshe came up with?
"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."
-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats
"You must experience that the various thoughts, in whatever form they arise, are an empty appearance and not a definable entity."
-Clarifying the Natural State pg. 33
