A description of the experience

The Ceasing of Notions [or the Treatise on the Transcendence of Cognition]

26.  Emmon asks ‘As I have heard, a bodhisattva can create his body by mental power.  Does that not mean he uses supernormal powers?'

Master Nyuri : ’The ordinary person's deeds are activated by karmic outflows, but the buddha's actions are without leaks.  Though there is a difference between them, neither case is the freely functioning Way.  It is said in a sutra.  'As to the various bodies produced by the power of thought, all are but mental formations.' '
