The Buddhist teachings involve three main Yanas, or vehicles, which correspond with the three main stages of spiritual development (true in all genuine traditions) namely:
a) working with confusion to tame and pacify it
b) working out of confusion into realization
c) working with realization to stabilize and complete it
These three kayas, though distinct, are inseparable; no single one happens without the other two being present so basically they are just three aspects of one overall reality.
one lone bird warbling
one whole life story
in fragile moment of song
like dew on dawn grass
like millions of leaves waiting in quivering stillness for wind
like paint staying faithfully on a wall…
acres of snow
white noise of silence
inner and outer
are not two!
chairs and tables
watching our every move…
Through the portal of any such particular we plunge into an ocean of experiential infinity…
