You have to keep in mind that Dzogchen is not a man-made system.

Which is why even today Dzogchen leads to rainbow body, a body of light.

I was tracking all the way up until you posted this nonsense. Bit like saying "You have to keep in mind that God is not a man-made system. Which is why even today God leads to a rainbow body, an eternal body of light in heaven." Utter and complete bullshit jibber-jabber. There is no concept, not a single one, which is not artificial and exists outside the mind of man. Hell the concept of a "concept" is fucking artificial.


There is no way humans could ever come up with the Dzogchen method that dissolves the physical body into light.

It takes a sustained effort over 2 decades. Thus its not something that can be stumbled onto by accident. Its not meditation or anything intuitive.

What proof is there that anything like that ever actually happened?

Humans could certainly come up with the claim. Accepting a claim like that would require some pretty convincing evidence.

You have an assertion, and your reason for the claim is it isn't intuitive?

Quantum particles and various forms of radiation aren't intuitive discoveries either. Humans over centuries of thought took time to discover various unintuitive ideas. Some are made up and some have physical forms.

No one has dissolved into light - you are either delusional or very gullible.

Sad RE: Sam Harris is a Buddhist








If you had just a minute to breathe
And they granted you one final wish
Would you ask for something like another chance?
Or something sim'lar as this?
Don't worry too much It'll happen to you
As sure as your sorrows are joys
And the thing that disturbs you is only the sound of
The low spark of high-heeled boys

That isn't something that is easy or capable for anyone either. There is human benefit in ANYWAY you do it to get to a more focused or clear minded mental state at times. It doesn't have to be nonsense or based on a religious cornerstone. It could come from writing, working out, stretching, mediating, focusing, or masturbating.

Man if I knew that I could've been a Navy SEAL, I would have jacked off even more as a teen.
