Tashi delek dear readers, :)

Some interesting remarks about the 3 Kayas which do inherent exist in our Nature.


- The essence of Knowledge, indefinable by any term such as color, shape or other attribute, is the Dharmakaya
- The inherent radiance of emptiness is the light of Sambhogakaya
- The unimpeded medium in which all things manifest is the Nirmanakaya


The 3 modes are explained like this:

- The Dharmakaya is a crystal mirror
- The Sambhogakaya is its nature -brilliant clarity
- The Nirmanakaya is the unobstructed medium in which the reflection appears.


Best wishes for our Bon Dzogchen practice
Kalden Yungdrung

The three fruitional kāyas.

In essence it is empty, hence free from the limitations of permanence.

By nature it is clear and free from the limitations of nihilism.

Its compassion unobstructed, it is the ground of manifold emanations.

It is divided into three, yet in truth there are no such differentiations.

May all realize this Great Perfection, the true nature of the ground!


The undefiled dharmakaya, as the form of reality itself, is the ground of everything. By its very own nature this emptiness is clear and luminous, and thus the sambhoghakaya is spontaneously present. In all circumstances, whether at the time of the ground, path, or fruition, it undergoes neither change nor fluctuation, and neither waxes nor wanes. It is, therefore, free from the limitations of nihilism.

As the radiance of this unified awareness-emptiness, its capacity is unobstructed. This is the ground of manifold emanations—the illusory empty forms that manifest, the pure as well as the impure.

It is divided into three distinct components, yet in truth, when it comes to the essence of this single awareness there are no such differentiations. May all realize this natural Great Perfection, the true nature of the ground, without losing sight of the wisdom of the sambhogakaya in which the three kayas are spontaneously present!
