Re: QUERY> A Puzzling Description of the Trikāya in a Qing-period Document

Hi Matthew,

Just got back from a conference in Xi’an — was offline without computer while in China, and just saw your posting to H-Buddhism about the unusual Qing description of the trikāya. In Chinese, context is everything, so without knowing more about where and why this passage appears, speculating about possible implications are at best tenuous. One can’t rule out a typo (mistakenly reversing nirmāṇa and sambhoga), or the author’s own confusion. Without knowing the context, again, it is hard to guess.
