Dynamic of being

Postby Sönam » Sat Jul 16, 2011 12:58 pm

when purified, from the three bodies it seems that only nirmanakaya identifies bodhicitta ... also trikaya is not separated.

"Original intrinsic awareness is like a crystal ball: its emptiness is the dharmakaya's nature; its clear and natural glow is the sambhogakaya; and, as the unimpede medium of wharever appears, it is the nirmanakaya."

Lama Shabkar / The Flight of the Garuda - Song 12 / translation Keith Dowman (...)

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.

Erik Pema Kunsangs translation is basically the same...

"The ground of self-existing awareness is like a sphere of crystal,
The emptiness of the crystal sphere is the nature of dharmakaya,
Its natural expression of clarity is sambhogakaya,
Its unobstructed basis for manifestation is nirmanakaya."
"But if you know how to observe yourself, you will discover your real nature, the primordial state, the state of Guruyoga, and then all will become clear because you will have discovered everything"-Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche

Dowmans is basically a rewrite of Eric's.

My translation is a little different:

"The basis, one’s vidyā, is like a crystal ball;
its emptiness is the nature of the dharmakāya;
its self-revealing clarity is the sambhogakāya;
and the door of unceasing arising is the nirmanakāya.

It seems obvious that the three translations describe the same process of manifestation ... also the perspective of medium/basis/door for nirmanakaya is slightly different.
