Term Definition
Rime

(tib.: rime) Literally unbiased. A non-sectarian movement, integrating elements of all schools, which crystallized during the nineteenth century in Eastern Tibet. It was established by the leading spiritual figures of that time, namely: Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo who initiated the movement (1820–1892), and his disciples, Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye (1811–1899), Chogyur Dechen Lingpa (1829–1870), and Ju Mipham Gyatso (1846–1912). The influence of the Rime movement is still palpable today, especially in the Karma Kagyu and Nyingma schools. The main concern of the first Rime teachers and the succeeding generations of their students was a clear structuring of doctrinal and practical materials, based on the example of the Gelug school. Thus a principal feature of the Rime movement was the emergence of a new literature.

Rupakaya

(tib.: suk ku) Form body. Refers to emanation bodies of a Buddha. The basis for Rupakaya is collection of merit. Rupakaya can be divided in Nirmanakaya and Sambhogakaya.

Words of Wisdom

"Like me, the countless living beings have been wandering in cyclic existence. Many times they have been a parent to me and shone radiant kindness upon me. How unworthy not to respond to their sorrow. For the sake of all living beings we must strive in the practices bringing Enlightenment."
- 1st Dalai Lama
