By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

It is part of the Yangzab Dzogchen Ngondro practice. It is from Drikung Kagyu.

There are good books about it, if you are really interested.

edit:
I answer you like this because you've said in another thread that you feel like reverting to true atheism or something and the way you started your participation in this thread doesn't show curiosity or interest, but criticism. Isn't it you who think that the rainbow body is a sociological phenomena or something? So I won't waste my time. If you are interested, knowledge about this can be found in good books.

By "a sociological phenomenon" I mean what I think should be straight forward Dharma, i.e. that every phenomenon that is perceived is dependent on the perceiver, or a group of perceivers. This applies to the rainbow body too, and this view doesn't contradict the basic Mahayana Dharma in any way.
I was interested to know what ideas you have about the rainbow body, and what kind of teachings there generally are about it?

If you consider seeing a river, a rock or a person as sociological phenomena, I can live with that definition. Otherwise it's just a polite way of calling it a superstition.
As I said, there are good books that focus the rainbow body.

It seems similar to the others preceding and after, praising a great being (Noble Konchog Ratna in this line) and asking for blessing so that rainbow body can be achieved.
