The mind/body dualism is a sutrayāna thing.
In Vajrayāna mind (སེམས) and the vāyu (རླུང) are completely inseparable. In the teaching of Dzogpachenpo, not only are they inseparable, but Guru Rinpoche remarks to Yeshe Tsogyal that mind and vāyu are synonymous with one another. You can discover this by reading the མཁའ་འགྲོ་སྙིང་ཐིག་རྒྱབ་ཆོས.
Excuse me for offtopic.
Namdrol, can you teach us tibetan via internet, mails or skype, to study tibetan texts, for basic talking and so on?
