Thumbs Up You don't need to die.
Tibetan Buddhists, even today, attain the Dzogchen rainbow body.

A body made of light.

Even Sam Harris is a long time student of Dzogchen. He promotes initiation into Dzogchen in his book "Waking Up" and podcasts. Although I don't think he mentions the rainbow body part.

There is also a lesser form of rainbow body where the corpse shrinks to the size of a dinner plate or completely disappears, leaving behind only the fingernails and hair. This occurs when one doesn't complete the path while alive. So this result is much more common.

RE: You don't need to die.
The mystical biographies and autobiographies in books such as Togden Shakya Shri, Fearless in Tibet, Blazing Splendor, Apparitions of the Self, Clear Mirror, and Buddhahood without Meditation are absolutely mind blowing.

Also known as "decomposition" in less enlightened circles.

RE: You don't need to die.
That form of rainbow body occurs during the death process.

You are still alive.

Sorry for the confusion.

Your body shrinks to the size of newborn, or completely disappears leaving behind only fingernails and hair.

RE: You don't need to die.
Okay great. I will tell my cancer doctor at 11 am Eastern Standard Time when I get the news if I am about to die or not. Or have to once again undergo aggressive chemo. The last time which nearly killed me.

It is okay doctor, have you heard of Dzogchen?

I can just imagine the doctor's facial expression.

All this shit is just Woo.

Evidence please.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Death is inevitable. No amount of woo will change that. Deal with it.
