There is an intangible but palpable facet of us that isn’t the blood, flesh, and bone; referred by many names in different traditions: subtle body, dreambody, vajra body, rainbow body, linga sharir, fluid body, etc.
The vajra body or inner body of light, or rainbow body is neither a metaphorical nor metaphysical concept.
The vajra body is an aspect of physical reality: we are literally made of light. Siddha Tantra, ancient Egyption traditions, Ayurveda,Tibetan and Chinese Medicine traditions have known that the body draws light from the macrocosm of the universe and distributes it through the subtle channels or nadi into the microcosm of the organs, tissues, and cells.
The vajra body is not limited or bound within the physical skin boundary, it extends and connects with nature and all life around us.
While this knowledge has been mostly forgotten, there is increasing evidence today (at least in some areas of medicine and science) that every cell of the human body has the capacity to store, utilize, and create light.
When our awareness moves towards the center of vajra body, all our irritation, friction, discomfort, grindings dissolve and a sense of inner silence and emptiness arises.
The mindless chatter and the restlessness of reactive cravings, and frustration go away; instead a deep transfomative stillness arises.
Stillness can’t come until our attention is collected within, and this happens when our awareness is entangled with the innate rhythms of vajra body. These innate rhythms or forces of vajra body are called shakti or dakini or mysterious woman or tide or breath-of-life winds, inner fire or circulation of cosmic light, qi.
This shakti or inner fire or circulation of light in and out of each cell is essential to the health, vitality, and harmony of the whole being. The shakti holds our attention, leading to the quietude that has potency for healing and transformation.
Stillness isn’t a practice of quieting the mind but rather a practice of collecting and entertainment of our attention within the vajra body and that coincidentally quietens the mind.
It is this circulation of light that is the core of alchemy of vajra body. In Daoist alchemy circulation of light is rooted in the Mysterious Woman.
“You must know that there is an energy hub in the body called the Mysterious Woman. It is neither the heart, the kidneys, the mouth nor the nose. It is not the same as the spleen, stomach, anus, bladder, elixir field, or Niwan. Once you know this chi center, it becomes the core of everything… However, this center is boundless and neither located inside nor outside. Rather, it is the root of spirit and chi, the valley of emptiness and nonbeing. Just look for it inside the body; you cannot find it outside.” ~Zhang Boduan ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
