Through Dzogchen we can really understand what God is and we don’t have to worry if there is a God or not. God always exists as our real nature, the base, for everybody. - Chögyal Namkhai Norbu

If you take time to really dissect what it is that you mean by the word "exist",
you will know the answer to this question.

you will know the answer to this question.
if you don't do that,
no answer will be satisfactory.

I love this discussion line"does Vajra Sattva exist?"Well this blog doesn't exist so why post to it.Re:Trungpa it makes me think of the Zen objecting to ritual,when in Chan the practitioners know that two vehicles are needed for enlightenment.There's a falling into extremes.

Vajrasattva is no more real than the people who are imagining the existence of this thread.

When queried about it, the previous Kalu R. replied to the person asking the question; "Well the deities are pure manifestations of the Dharmakaya. You, on the other hand, are an impure manifestation of the Dharmakaya."

That's not an exact quote, but close. I took away from it that he thought the deities were more real than we are.

Well, I don't know. Is that really what the tradition says?
