Looking for author of a quote

Can anyone identify who said this?

"Appearance, sound, and awareness: these three are deity, mantra, and the domain of Dharmakaya"

Hello Drolma, It sounds very similar to a part of a teaching taught by Guru Padmasambhava to Namkhai Nyingpo.

That appearances be liberated as the deity
That sounds be liberated as mantra
That thoughts be liberated into pure being.

The 15th Karmapa said it, but I doubt it was original with him.
One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

From The Prayer Requested by Namké Nyingbo

All these things of the outer environment and the beings therein
That come into sight as the objects of your eyes like this,
They may appear, but leave them in the sphere free from clinging to a self.
Since they are pure of perceiver and perceived, they are the luminous-empty body of the deity.
I pray to the guru in whom attachment is self-liberated,
I pray to Padmasambhava from Uddiyana.

All these sounds, taken as pleasant or unpleasant,
That resound as the objects of your ears like this,
Leave them in the sphere of inconceivable, empty resonance.
Empty resonance, unborn and unceasing, is the Victor’s speech.
I pray to the words of the Victor that resound and yet are empty,
I pray to Padmasambhava from Uddiyana.

However these thoughts of afflictions’ five poisons,
Which stir as objects in your mind like this, may appear,
Do not mess around with them through a mind that rushes ahead into the future or lingers in the past.
Through leaving their movement in its own place, they uncoil as the dharmakaya.
I pray to the guru whose awareness is self-liberated,
I pray to Padmasambhava from Uddiyana.

Grant your blessings that the mind stream of someone like me is liberated
Through the compassion of the Tathagatas of the three times,
So that objects, appearing as if perceived outside, become pure,
That my very mind, perceiving as if inside, becomes liberated,
And that, in between, luminosity will recognize its own face.

- by Padmasambhava

Dzogchen masters I know say: 1)Buddhist religion essence is Dzogchen 2)Religions are positive by intent/fruit 3)Any method's OK unless: breaking Dzogchen vows, mixed as syncretic (Milanese Soup) 4)Don't join mandalas of opponents of Dalai Lama/Padmasambhava: False Deity inventors by encouraging victims 5)Don't debate Ati with others 6)Don't discuss Ati practices online 7) A master told his old disciple: no one's to discuss his teaching with some others on a former forum nor mention him. Publicity's OK, questions are asked from masters/set teachers in person/email/non-public forums~Best wishes
