RE: You don't need to die.
I find anyone who 'knows' what happens after we die mildly amusing.

RE: You don't need to die.
We are not talking about after death.

This is while alive.

Sorry for the confusion.

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

I've heard some nutty claims but... do people really believe this crap? Just how gullible do you have to be to fall for it?

The higher type of rainbow body occurs when you are alive.

The lesser type of rainbow body occurs *during* the death process.

Either way, you are alive.

While you are alive?

Wow! Are there any documented cases of this happening?

I've seen images of 100+ year olds and they are bigger than new borns (unsurprisingly) and have brains and guts and flesh and stuff.

Immortality, even better. Go pull someone else's leg, mine's getting sore.

Most of the westerners who follow Dzogchen are former rationalists and New Atheists.

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.

Please provide documented evidence supporting this assertion.
