RE: You don't need to die.
I don't need to die? Since when dying is about need?

Also good trolling require some skill.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Do you save them in the break room when they turn into plates ?

RE: You don't need to die.
I'm more partial to the nonsense of Zen, at least there is some following amusement in there. Though your Buddhism is far from representative of all Buddhism. Perhaps being more up front with your stance or still to this point, having any evidence of this rainbow body effect existing. Yes there are a couple people even in the 20th century who are presumed to have achieved this? And the evidence of that is? What anecdotal evidence from other Buddhist practitioners who simply proclaim it happened? What else is there?

Sure, also if you view reality in another Buddhist way of nothing ever does die, it just changes form. Then you don't need to die either, you just change form. Except using those phrases doesn't alter anything.

You don't need to die.
I think we're missing the important question. I'm an organ donor because upon my death, they can use whatever is left that's useful. Knowing that:

Should I become a rainbow body, can they fly me at a pride parade?

Does Dzogchen let us pick out our dinner plate patterns. I'm kind of partial to Spode and Jasperware.

Fucking rich people. How am I supposed to scrape my vittles off of that crap?

Of course we need to die. Some more than others.

He is a much more prolific author on these subjects and they would be more useful in your personal life and those of others. Don't take it to wrong, but you kind of sound like a lunatic right now.

Have you even bothered to google "Dzogchen rainbow body" in Google Books?

There are a ton of books that talk about it.

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

Either way, you are alive.

Maybe if I eat a bowl of these everyday......

but, hummmm, would I become a higher or lower rainbow body? Consider

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

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.

RE: You don't need to die.
If one finishes the 4 visions, one may attain the higher type of rainbow body.

If one doesn't quite finish the 4 visions, one displays the lower type.

There are a ton of books that talk about Sauron, the Valar, and hobbits.
Your point being......?
