FWBO says he's "the Adi-Buddha appearing in Bodhisattva form": http://www.freebuddhistaudio.com/texts/ ... 2&&at=text

Is this correct? How does one go about verifying these claims?

No, In Vajrayana Vajrasattva is a Buddha, not a Bodhisattva.

We are all here to help each other go through this, whatever it is.
~Kurt Vonnegut

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa
