|The Lama is not material
The essence of the Lama or Buddha is emptiness; their nature, clarity; their appearance, the play of unimpeded awareness. They have no form, shape, or color, at all --- like the empty luminosity of space. When we know them to be like that, we can develop faith, merge our minds with theirs, and let our minds rest peacefully.
- Kalu Rinpoche
Marpa's Teaching on the Five Ultimate Kayas
Self-luminous unchanging insight
Is described as unborn dharmakaya.
Unceasing self-born wisdom
Is described as the multiplicity of nirmanakaya.
These two unified in coemergence
Are described as the sambhogakaya.
These three free from origin
Are described as the svabhavikakaya.
All these, beyond conditions
Are described as the mahasukhakaya.
These are the five ultimate kayas.
Does this gladden your minds, heart friends?
