This graphic is similar to the graphic under TLGD, but uses terms from the Buddhist-tradition instead of terms from the Shambhala- tradition. All processes follow the same pattern, where form and space appear “BIG BANG-like”* fresh from the not-manifested potential. The white dots of space and the green dots of the form share the same place. In this graphic the white dots are depicted a bit left from the green ones to show, that space flashes first and form follows. All processes, starting from the appearance of a photon to the experience of light, appear from the same source, from the not-manifested potential, and are therefore always inherently connected. In the Buddhist-tradition this basic ground is called Buddhanature.
- Dharmakaya is the aspect of the process, that is connected to the not-manifested potential, symbolically depicted here as the area below the four blue arrows
- Sambhoghakaya is the aspect, where manifestations flash in the form of lively energies, symbolically depicted here as coloured arrows
blue - Vajra
yellow - Ratna
red - Padma
- Nirmanakaya is the aspect, where every manifestion flashes as form, symbolically depicted here as dots
green - Karma
- Space is symbolically depicted here as white dots, surrounded by light-blue area
white - Buddha
Every appearence manifests within this structure of the kayas in an overall process. Buddhism talkes about this as the Trikaya, the inseparability of the three kayas. All five Buddha families (Buddha, Vajra, Ratna, Padma, Karma) pop up flashlike during those processes spontanuously and unconditionally and bring about our experience of clarity, liveliness, openness and uniqueness in an amazing and magical way. The graphic shows, that the patterns are similar in both worlds, in the material word as well as in the experienced world.
According to the Buddhist tradition the sequence of perception processes is very rapid, about several ten thousand events per second. These sequences are then looked at by our awareness from a kind of bird's-eye view, so that a smoothed version appears in our experience, similar to a movie projector, where the the illusion of movment comes from a fast sequence of many single shots. For the process of awareness Buddhists talk about 360 flashes per second.
