development process - bskyed rim, utpattikrama: this is one of those terms that seems to have become stuck in modern translations, and is often seen translated as generation stage, or even, phase. It is the whole meditation from the dissolution into emptiness to the development of the full image of the maṇḍala complete with all its deities that is named in Sanskrit, utpattikrama. Each of the steps, or stages, within this process purifies some aspect of the process of gestation and life, and the term stage is quite inappropriate for the whole process. On the other hand, the term stage would be suitable for the steps involved: the Oxford English Dictionary gives among its definitions of stage: "Division of a journey or process", also "a step in a process" [TSD]
