Rainbow Body Guru Rinpoche This term relates to one of the highest attainments when, upon dying, the corporeal form is transformed into a body of light, primordial awareness, a 'light without shadow.' At the time of death the adept's physical body and mind are dissolved into the pure radiance of deathless awareness. The only worldly remains left behind are bits of hair and nails. Reports of the attainment of rainbow bodies persist throughout the history of Vajrayana Buddhism up until the present time, both in Tibet and India.
