At Home in Your Dharma Body — Part 2

Buddha Shakyamuni as Lord of the Munis

Buddhists sometimes visualize the Dharmakaya, the body of the absolute, in the form of a human being too. There is Shakyamuni, a human being, who embodies the Dharma. Buddhism teaches that you have many bodies including a physical body and a Dharma body. You carry within you the body of the Dharma, and it is possible for you to touch it. You also have the Buddha body that you can touch at any time.
