... describes a body that enjoys the wealth of purified vision. Herein dwells the enlightened one while embodied in the superhuman form. This is the first reflex on the heavenly planes and represents phenomenal appearances. It is the essence of the mind, the celestial state and the divine body of perfect endowment. The mind being as the uncreated and of the voidness, vacuous, ready to reach the point of Nirmana-Kaya, which is the primordial essence. -- Evans/ Wentz, Tibetan Book of Liberation the activity resulting from its enjoyment (the wealth of purified visions) is the instruction by the Sons of Victorious One and its spontaneity is its effortlessness. It is as if the King of Jewels (The Wishfulfillment Gem) were present --sGam. Po. Pa. The Jewel Ornament of Liberation Although purists in the study of Tibetan Buddhism and its teachings may think the use of it as a title to this piece, I feel that it is the only way in which to express the effect of the work. The path takes many forms and manifests separately with each, and this is my awareness of such a state as Sambhoga-Kaya.
